5. Maria Susairaj (2008)
A body hacked into allegedly 300 pieces is how the urban legend went. In reality, Maria Susairaj and her devastatingly good-looking boyfriend from the navy chopped the body of television executive Neeraj Grover into closer to a tenth of this sum. The reason: a love story gone horribly wrong. Neeraj Grover was a priapric womanizer; Maria Susairaj was giving Bollywood a shot, despite having done some films in the Kannada film industry; and Emile Jerome, they say, entered their love nest and killed Neeraj Grover in a rage in May 2008. Nobody really knows what happened. Maria was acquitted recently by the courts, but Emile Jerome was convicted.
