Indian-Origin Dentist Killed;Suspected Ex-Boyfriend, Dead In Car Crash 

New Delhi: In Australia, a woman of Indian-origin had went missing under mysterious circumstances. The woman who was a 32 year old dentist has been murdered with her body bearing numerous stab wounds found dumped in a suitcase in Sydney, the police said today.

The police have suspected the dentist's ex-boyfriend Harsh Narde. The body of the woman was found stuffed in a suitcase in her car parked in an eastern Sydney street, New South Wales.

The police said that the main suspect Narde had died in a fiery car crash on the New England Highway on Monday night, a day after his ex-girlfriend was reported missing.

They added that the head-on collision, around 340 kilometres from where Reddy's body was found, is believed to have been deliberate.

The police said they spoke to Narde as part of the missing persons investigation, before his death.

The cops had added that at that time, the investigation was still in its early stages.

"I cannot qualify exactly what has happened and I won''t put it out there because if we''re wrong and it''s not substantiated then we''re doing a disservice to Preethi and her family," Detective Superintendent Gavin Dengate told the ABC News.

The officer was quoted as saying, "At this stage we know they met up in Sydney and now we''re looking at all the movements between these two."

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

She was last seen waiting in line at McDonald's in George Street on Sunday, the police said.

She bought two bottles of water before leaving, walking south towards Market Street, where police said Reddy was staying at a hotel with a man known to her.

Reddy was attending a dental conference in St Leonards at the weekend and last spoke to her family at around 11 AM on Sunday.

She told them that she would head home after breakfast, and when she failed to return, her family contacted police.

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

The woman's colleagues say that they were "terrified" and had been unable to sleep since her disappearance.

"It's devastating, and this is completely out of character," dental assistant Chelsea Holmes of Glenbrook Dental Surgery was quoted as saying by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.

"We got a call on Monday asking if she had turned up to work ... and now we are just hoping and none of us have been able to sleep.

"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.

The New South Wales police said that they were appealing for information in relation to her whereabouts.
