The Pan­vel po­lice have solved the case of two bod­ies found on the JNPT and Uran high­ways on June 13.

The de­ceased are mother and her six-year-old daugh­ter. They are look­ing out for the hus­band of the woman, who is absconding. While the woman’s body was found on the Pan­vel- JNPT high­way, her daugh­ter’s body was found on on Uran road.

Teams of Pan­vel city and Uran po­lice in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case learnt that a miss­ing case had been filed in Je­juri vil­lage of Pu­ran­dar taluka of Pune district about Sushma Nan­gar­goje and her daugh­ter Priya.

The com­plaint had been filed by Sushma’s mother. Her hus­band too was present when the com­plaint was filed.

Fol­low­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions, the Pan­vel po­lice team led by se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor Su­nil Ba­jare has found that the hus­band Sh­ri­mant who drives heavy ve­hi­cles had mur­dered the duo at dif­fer­ent places.

Ac­cord­ing to Ba­jare, “Sh­ri­mant worked as a driver with one San­deep More at Kalam­boli. In­ves­ti­ga­tions have re­vealed that the mur­ders took place over fam­ily is­sues.”

“Af­ter com­mit­ting the crime, Sh­ri­mant called his rel­a­tives, and in­formed them that he had killed both his wife and daugh­ter. His phone num­ber has been found switched off af­ter that,” said Su­nil Ba­jare se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor of Pan­vel city po­lice sta­tion.

He added, “The po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions have made head­way with it learn­ing that Sh­ri­mant has con­fessed to the crime to his close friends.”

The po­lice had on June 13 morn­ing, found Sushma’ body on Kalam­boli-JNPT road. She had in­jury marks on her body of be­ing hit by a ve­hi­cle. Po­lice had taken cus­tody of the then uniden­ti­fied body. A short while later, on the same road, at a dis­tance of some kilo­me­tres, Uran po­lice found Priya’s body.

Dur­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions, po­lice sus­pected that the two could be re­lated and hence looked for miss­ing com­plaints of such in­stances, when they came across the miss­ing com­plaint in Je­juri.

Said Ba­jare, “Fol­low­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions Sh­ri­mant be­came prime sus­pect. We later learnt that Sh­ri­mant had con­fided in his col­leagues about the mur­ders. Ba­jare said, “He is absconding, but we are con­fi­dent of get­ting him soon.”
