Three teams have been formed to trace Ajit Talreja, 26, who threw oil at Neetu Jaisinghani, 21, in Ulhasnagar because she turned down his marriage proposal.
Jaisinghani worked as compounder at a private clinic in Ulhasnagar, while Talreja’s family sets up a vada pav stall at Manish Nagar every evening.
On Saturday night, after closing for the day, Talreja allegedly took the hot oil left in a thermos and hurled it at her while she was in the clinic.
“We have formed three teams each comprising an assistant police inspector and five policemen.
We have checked his phone records, spoken to his relatives and are keeping an eye on his usual hangout spots,” said Ashok Sakpal, senior inspector, central police station.
Shivajirao Rathod, deputy commissioner of police, Ulhasnagar, said, “We have sent our teams to Delhi, Pune and Thane to speak to his relatives.”
Gulabsingh Jaisinghani, the victim’s brother, said, “My sister was in a relationship with Talreja.While the families wanted them to get married, she called off the plan six months ago when she heard that he was an alcoholic.”
Upset, Talreja used to call Jaisinghani repeatedly from different PCOs, alleged her brother. “Fifteen days ago, he went to my sister’s workplace and threatened to kill her,” he said.
Rekha Motwani, sister of accused Ajit Talerja, said, “Talreja was disturbed since the break-up. We had taken him to a psychiatrist and he was undergoing treatment. There can be no justification for my brother’s actions. We are with the woman’s family.”
Narendra Talreja, accused’s father, said, “The police had also found a note in which Ajit had written that he was disturbed with the break-up and would end his life after killing the woman.”
Currently, Jaisinghani is being treated at a local hospital. According to doctors, her condition is stable.
Veena Balsekar, victim’s sister, said, “Around 15 days ago, Talreja had promised us that he will not harm Neetu in any way. He had earlier threatened her, but was pacified by us. After this incident, we are convinced that our decision was not wrong.”
