Mumbai: A 23-year-old Israeli national, Oriron Yakov, was on Monday booked under different sections of IPC related to culpable homicide not amounting to murder after forensic reports confirmed that his 20-year-old girlfriend, also an Israeli national, had died of suffocation during an act of sexual intercourse.
The incident had taken place in March last year when Yakov and his girlfriend visited India on a tourist visa and stayed at a hotel in Colaba area of south Mumbai, a police official said.
During the act of sexual intercourse in their hotel room, Yakov allegedly applied pressure on the woman's neck and she got suffocated, he said.
"The police later rushed to the hotel after Yakov informed the staff that his girlfriend was lying motionless in the room", the police official said.
The woman was taken to a hospital where she was declared dead, he said, adding that a case of accidental death was registered at that time as the exact cause of her death was unclear. The woman's family members had later taken the body to Israel, according to PTI.
The official said that the police recently received the forensic lab's report which mentioned that the woman died of suffocation. "Based on the findings of the report, the police registered a case against Yakov, who is currently in Israel", he said, adding that further probe in the case is on.
