Man killed woman, daughter and fled
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.”
