Hasnain Warekar, who murdered 14 members of his family before committing suicide, was in debt by Rs 69 lakh and had possibly sexually assaulted his sister, the Thane police revealed on Saturday. The revelations were based sole survivor Subiya Barmar’s statement and police investigations.
“Subiya, Hasnain’s sister, told the police on Friday that Hasnain had sexually assaulted their younger sister several times and she had herself disclosed this to Subiya, when she visited the Kasarvadavli house recently. When she informed her mother about this, the latter revealed she knew about this all along,” Ashutosh Dumbare, joint commissioner of police, Thane, told the media.
Dumbare said Hasnain’s mother later told him about Subiya’s knowledge of the matter. “Subiya said Hasnain was upset about the news was spreading within his family. Autopsies have been performed on all bodies and they do not show any signs of sexual assault,” he added.
The JCP said investigations have revealed Hasnain had borrowed a huge amount of money. “It was impossible for him to repay the loans he had taken. This could be a reason why he killed his entire family,” Dumbare said.
“Hasnain was unemployed since 2013 and had borrowed Rs 69 lakh from his parents, sisters and other relatives to start a business. He had also lost money in the share market,” he added.
Dumbare revealed Hasnain, an expert in sacrificing goats, used to joke about killing his family members with ‘his favourite qurbani knife’.
He added that the police found tablets prescribed by a psychiatrist for his sister from Warekars’ residence. “At times, Hasnain used to consume the tablets. They were bought from Thane and Pune. Our team is probing all angles. Hasnain had also rented a flat at Majiwada and used to pay Rs 7,500 per month as rent. But he hardly visited flat,” Dumbare said.
