Vic­tim and boyfriend fought of­ten, re­veals em­cee’s sister

Po­lice Sub­mit Chargesheet In Mur­der Case

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY -

Mum­bai: Mur­dered em­cee Ar­pita Ti­wari’s sister has told the cops that after her sister’s fu­neral, friends had told her that the vic­tim and her boyfriend had fre­quent fights as he was nei­ther ready to marry her nor will­ing to end the re­la­tion­ship.

The state­ment has been made part of the chargesheet sub­mit­ted in the case in which a friend of the cou­ple–Amit Hazra–has been ac­cused of mur­der­ing the 25-year-old Mira Road res­i­dent at his Malad flat on De­cem­ber 11last year.

Ar­pita’s older sister told the cops after the fu­neral on De­cem­ber 12, that due these fre­quent fights with her boyfriend Pankaj Jad­hav, the vic­tim was un­der men­tal agony. The wit­ness said that night she in­formed her par­ents about this.

Also part of the chargesheet are re­sults of poly­graph tests con­ducted on Jad­hav, Hazra and other oc­cu­pants of the flat on the night of the al­lege mur­der. The tests con­clu- ded that Jad­hav’s an­swers to two ques­tions were ‘de­cep­tive’. The ques­tions were re­lat­ing to him know­ing who threw Ar­pita from the win­dow, and him hid­ing any in­for­ma­tion in the case. He had an­swered in the neg­a­tive to both the ques­tions

With re­spect to Hazra, the re­port con­cluded that he was found to be ‘de­cep­tive’ on four rel­e­vant ques­tions re­lated to him hav­ing thrown Ar­pita out of the win­dow, him hav­ing seen when she was thrown out of the win­dow, him hav­ing mur­dered her and him hav­ing forced her to have sex with him that night. He too had an­swered in the neg­a­tive to the ques­tions.

The most de­tailed state­ment in the chargesheet is that of Jad­hav in which he claimed that Hazra who the cou­ple had be­friended after they met at a bar at Malad, had “one-sided” love for the vic­tim and made re­peated sex­ual ad­vances. Jad­hav said that one morn­ing in Novem­ber when the cou­ple had stayed back at Hazra’s flat at Malad, which he shared with three other friends, Ar­pita had told him that be­fore leav­ing for work Hazra had touched her in­ap­pro­pri­ately. Jad­hav said that when he told Ar­pita that he would con­front Hazra over this, she told him that “she would han­dle the sit­u­a­tion”. He fur­ther re­called an­other in­stance when the cou­ple, Hazra and an­other friend had gone out of town on bikes. He said that at that time Ar­pita sat pil­lion on the bike with Hazra, while he rode with the fourth per­son in the group.

Re­call­ing the events lead­ing up to the in­ci­dent, Jad­hav said that when they re­turned after a night of par­ty­ing to the Malad build­ing at 3.45am on De­cem­ber 11, Ar­pita was los­ing her bal­ance as she was drunk. Jad­hav said that Hazra held her by her waist and led her up to the el­e­va­tor. He fur­ther said at the flat when Hazra asked her to change her clothes, Ar­pita got an­gry and said, “You are my friend, stay my friend, don’t try to be my boyfriend.”
