MUMBAI -- A Mumbai Court on Tuesday sent three persons, who have been detained in connection with the murder of artist Hema Upadhyay and her lawyer Harish Bhambani, to police custody till December 19.

The Special Task Force (STF) along with Uttar Pradesh (UP) Police had on Monday detained the suspects in connection with the sensational double murder case.

The UP Police had earlier today handed over suspects to the Mumbai Police.

According to police, the bodies of Hema (43) and Bhambhani (65), with their hands and feet tied with ropes, were recovered from a drain in suburban Kandivali on Saturday night.

Earlier in 2013, Bhambani had represented Hema in a case after she filed harassment complaints against her husband Chintan and alleged that he had painted obscene sketches on the walls of her room.
