IN A gruesome incident an old woman, Asha Tare working as a domestic help was found dead with her throat slit open in her flat today morning.

According to CSP Amit Sanghi the deceased’s son 20-year old Praveen Tare who works in Alpha Laboratories, Pigdamber, Rau found his mother lying in a pool of blood when he reached his flat located on the ground floor of Harshwardhan Apartment in Dhanwantri Nagar.

He had gone on night shift at about 5 pm yesterday and returned at about 8 am only to be greeted by the site of his murdered mother.

The deceased worked as a domestic help with one Mehta family of the area and earned about Rs 125 per month, while the income of her son was just about Rs 2,000.

The deceased’s husband Bhagchand Tare had died four years back leaving little to the family except the small one room flat they lived in.

The body was found lying on the bed with a gash on the throat running to the back of her neck almost severing her head from the body.

The belongings were scattered all over the flat although there was nothing much to be stolen. The door of the flat was found locked from outside and was opened by Praveen for entering inside.

The police believe that the murder was not done for financial motive as the economic condition of the family was hardly sound. Though a radio set and other tidbits have been reported stolen the police do not figure the crime to have been committed by robbers.

The family also did not have enough landed property or valuable to have enemies. The way in which the murderer gained entry without forcing his way in and committed the murder by pinning the woman down to the ground and slitting her throat with a sharp heavy object, while the neighbours slept away undisturbed signals to the possibility of the murderer being an acquaintance of the woman. 

Additional Superintendent Police (ASP) Dharemendra Choudhary, forensic doctor Sudhir Sharma, FSL team and Rajendra Nagar police reached the scene of crime.

The police are investigating all angles to this murder.
