The Mumbai police, on Tuesday, held the two Nepali domestic helps, Ramsingh Badila and Teksingh Badila, and two of their accomplices in connection with the double murder of their employer Kavita Suchak and her driver, Prakash Bagve.

The four accused were traced to Nanded district in Maharashtra and are being brought to Mumbai.

Police sources said they constantly traced the mobile phones of Ramsingh and Teksingh. Though the phones were switched off most of the time, the duo did use them on a few occasions, which helped the police trace their location.

They are expected to reach the city early on Sunday. The police are yet to ascertain the role of the two accomplices in the murder.

On Tuesday, Kavita Suchak and her driver, Prakash Bagve were found dead by Suchak’s daughter when she returned from school to their ground floor flat in Jai Jagdish Society at JVPD in Juhu. Suchak’s body was found lying in the bathroom. She had been hit on the head with a sickle, while Bagve was found tied up in the living room, strangulated to death.

Suchak’s husband Yogesh, a financial consultant, was in the US when the incident took place.

The two servants, who had been working for the family for the past four years, went missing after the crime.

The police have recovered Rs70,000 from the accused, suggesting that robbery may have been the motive behind the murders.
