The accused was identified as Altamash Dalvi (27), a resident of Mumbra, working as a supervisor in a small company. The accused didn’t want to marry her and therefore he took her on his bike. Dalvi planned to go further but due to traffic he choose the quarry to murder her.”

“The accused brought a 13-inch knife two days ago and planned to kill her advance. He slit her throat, threw her body in the bushes and fled from the spot,” the officer said.

Dalvi was arrested from Thane and was produced in court. He has been remanded in custody till August 17, the police said.

“My sister was pregnant earlier and Dalvi asked her to abort it. She was a happy girl whose only dream was to get married to her prince. Since she got into a relationship with him, he abused her so many times,” the deceased’s 28-year-old sister said.

“Three days ago, we both came to know that his marriage was fixed to another girl. We got her address and went to her house to tell Dalvi’s truth. He got angry with my sister on the same day and therefore he might have planned her murder. She was pregnant this time too,” she added.
