The Borivli police are on the lookout for three men who allegedly stabbed a 45-year-old rickshaw driver to death in Shimpoli, Borivli (West) on Monday night.

According to the Borivli police, the incident took place around 9.30pm in a garage near Shivaji Nagar slum.

Ambadas Shinde, 45, had six criminal cases registered against him. However, recently he had given up crime and was working as a rickshaw driver.

On the night of the murder, Shinde was with the three accused in the garage. The three men had a fight with Shinde regarding some differences pertaining to the rickshaw union. He also had a past personal enmity with the men.

During the argument, the men in a fit of rage stabbed Shinde thrice on his neck and chest. He was declared dead at Bhagwati hospital, where an autopsy was conducted on Tuesday.

Shinde’s wife Ashiwini, 27, lodged a first information report under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code and told police that she suspects there is one more man involved in the murder, who also works as a rickshaw driver.

Senior police inspector Laxman Dhumbre of Borivli police station said, “We have lodged a murder case. No arrests have been made so far. We are on the lookout for the accused.”
