Bara­mati busi­ness­man mur­dered

The Free Press Journal - - FRONT PAGE -

The body of a Bara­mati builder and former chief of the Na­tion­al­ist Con­gress Party Kam­gar Union, Dada Gan­pat Salunkhe was found near Ujni dam bridge on Fri­day evening. His killing has sent shock­waves in Bara­mati.

Tem­b­hurni Po­lice had ini­tially found it dif­fi­cult to iden­tify the body.

To es­tab­lish its iden­tity, they cir­cu­lated pho­tographs of the body, and men­tioned the name on the shirt tag, Se­queira Tai­lors. This helped them as­cer­tain that the body was that of Salunkhe.Salunkhe’s last call was to his wife on 10 pm on Thurs­day, when he is said to have in­formed her that he was be­ing at­tacked by some peo­ple. How­ever, his call got cut and when his wife at­tempted to call him back, Salunkhe’s cell­phone was switched off.

Po­lice sus­pect the mur­der may have been over a busi­ness deal gone wrong or be­cause Salunkhe owed money. He was a res­i­dent of Van­jar­wadi, next to Bara­mati MIDC. His mother has pre­vi­ously held the of­fice of deputy sarpanch and sarpanch of Van­jar­wadi. Salunkhe also ran a busi­ness named Gau­rav Wa­ter Sup­pli­ers. His cell­phone and car are still miss­ing. A case of mur­der has been regis­tered against per­sons un­known at Tem­b­hurni po­lice sta­tion.
