Serial killer Santosh Pol, the fake doctor who confessed to having murdered six people between 2003 and 2016, has told police that he was planning a suicide pact with his assistant-cum-nurse Jyoti Mandrare if they could not stop police from probing them in the Mangala Jedhe murder-cum-disappearance case.

Sources in the investigation team said that Pol, now in police custody in connection with six murders in Wai tehsil of Satara district, had realised that he would be unable to hide the crimes for a long period after being summoned by police in Mangala Jedhe case.

Pol and Jyoti had tried to mislead and divert police investigation on some grounds. Sources said that both of them had realised serious consequences of police investigations.

Pol is believed to have told police that he and Mandrare decided to end their lives if they fail to stop police investigation.

Pol had used Mandrare’s cell phone to talk to Jedhe. Her call data record led to his arrest from Mumbai.

A few days before their arrest, they had decided to kill themselves.
