Indian-origin woman dentist killed in Australia body found in suitcase

Police confirmed they grilled Dr Reddy's former boyfriend Harshwardhan Narde about her whereabouts before he deliberately smashed his vehicle into a truck. Her sister, Nithya Reddy, lodged a complaint with the Sydney police. The ghastly murder is believed to have taken place on Sunday considering the details of her last contact with the family members.

Reddy's body which was stabbed numerous times was found in a auto parked in Strachan Lane in Kingsford on Tuesday, days after she went missing from Sydney's busiest area under mysterious circumstances.

At about 10.10pm on Monday - hours after Dr Narde was grilled by police but before Dr Preethi's body was found - police and emergency services responded to reports of a head-on collision on the New England Highway at Willow Tree in northern NSW.

32-year-old Reddy had been attending a dental convention in St Leonards over the weekend where he spent Sunday night in a hotel on Market street with her ex-boyfriend, Harshwardhan Narde.

CCTV footage showed Preethi at a McDonald's inside the Strand Arcade in Sydney's CBD about 2:15 am Sunday.

Police found the body of Dr Preethi Reddy (32), in a suitcase in her auto.

According to report, it was understood that Narde was the key suspect in Reddy's murder.

ABC identified Preethi's ex-boyfriend as Harsh Narde.

The NSW Police described Reddy's disappearance as "out of character" and said there were serious concerns of her welfare.

"They looked happy and stayed back to chat after the conference ended at 6.30pm".

"The weird thing I noticed that night was that he took down his Facebook shortly after the conference".

Her colleagues posted a tribute on Facebook on Wednesday saying staff at the clinic were "in mourning" after hearing the news of her death.

"I spoke to her last Thursday and it was "see you next week" and completely normal", she said, adding "Now I am just praying she will be found", Holmes said.

"We send out deepest sympathy and out love to his family in India".

"Words can not capture the pain we are feeling with the passing of my lovely big sister", said Nithya, Preethi's sister. She worked at Glenbrook Dental Surgery in the Blue Mountains, about 70km west of Sydney.

"Preethi comes from a very educated family, Dr Reddy, the father himself, is a university professor", Mr Anand said.

"While we now know that Preethi is no longer with us, the certainty of her movements on Saturday night and Sunday morning are not yet fully known, and we will stay in touch with detectives as they work it all out".
