Rajappa Ghar, 22, who allegedly kidnapped Kaushik Jalawadia, 20, and is suspected to have murdered him with the help of other accused, wanted to get back at Jalawadia’s family over the death of a relative.
Ghar and some of his family members suspected that Jalawadia’s family was behind the death of their relative, and wanted them to pay a price for it.
Senior inspector Ansar Peerzade said: “In 2008, Jalawadia’s elder brother Bhavesh got married at Bhavnagar in Gujarat. . Jalawadia’s elder sister Sangeeta and her husband, Bharat Nisar, attended the wedding. During their stay there, Nisar fell into a well while talking on the phone and succumbed to his injuries later.”
“Nisar’s brother Nitin and sister Yogini suspected that Sangeeta and her family members had killed Nisar They sent her to her parents’ home, and did not allow her to meet the couple’s five-year-old son,” he added.
However, the belief that Sangeeta and her family had killed Nisar kept playing on the minds of the family members.
Ghar, who is Nitin’s brother-in-law and worked at his mobile shop, allegedly came up with the plan to seek revenge, said the police. The Dahisar police have detained Yogini and Nitin for questioning.
Currently, a case of kidnapping with the intention of killing has been registered against Ghar.
