The police have arrested his wife and her boyfriend, who killed him by slitting his throat, and threw his body 150 m away from their residence.

On Tuesday, the Hill Line police station was informed about a body found by locals at an open place, at 150m from Hajravay’s house.
Jitendra Agarkar, police inspector (crime), Hill Line police station, first interrogated the neighbours. “With the help of the neighbours, and through local sources, we found that the wife was in a relationship with another man, and she had regular quarrels with her husband about the affair,” added Agarkar.
