The owner of motorcycle-hailing company ‘Gokada’ and co-founder of ride-sharing venture Pathao, Fahim Saleh has been found dead in his New York apartment.
According to New York daily times, The dismembered body of the tech entrepreneur was found inside his swanky Manhattan condo on Tuesday afternoon.
An NYPD official said investigators believe the victim is a tech entrepreneur Fahim Saleh, 33, who bought the condo for $2.25 million last year.
NYPD spokesman Sgt. Carlos Nieves said all of the body parts were found at the scene but declined to give specifics on where.
According to homicide detectives, his torso, head, limbs, and an electric saw were found in separate places within the apartment, adding that effort had been made to clean up any evidence of what had happened.
The police did not immediately identify him but several friends who spoke on the condition of anonymity said he was Fahim Saleh.
Saleh’s sister made the gruesome discovery around 3:30 p.m. when she went to check on him after not hearing from him for a day, the police said.
The saw was still plugged into an electrical outlet when the police arrived, leading detectives to investigate whether the arrival of Saleh’s sister at the condo might have interrupted the killing and prompted the killer to flee through another exit, one of the law enforcement officials said.
The official said a surveillance camera had captured a video of Saleh in the building’s elevator with another person who was wearing a black suit and black mask.
On the video, the elevator door opens and Saleh goes into the apartment while the masked person follows directly behind him, and the two immediately start to struggle.
The sister is seen on the video arriving a short time later. There is a second way out of the apartment through a service entrance.
