Kritika's neighbours alerted police after a foul smell started emanating from her apartment on Monday. When police broke open the door which was locked from the outside, Kritika's decomposed body was found, sources said.

According to reports, the actress' dead body was lying in the apartment for the last three to four days.

Police have registered a case of 'accidental death' but are suspecting that the actress might have been murdered.
