Fazluddin Shaikh (32), a Chakala resident, was arrested on Monday for murdering a Sydney Pereira (40) — both of them used to breed horses in Malwani and send them for horse-carriage races.

Pereira’s body was found near a hotel in Andheri (East) on July 28. “Shaikh and Pereira, a resident of Amboli, used to earn their living by giving horse rides at Gorai beach,” said DCP (Zone X) Prakash Mutyal.

They had a dispute over some financial issue, said the police. The duo reportedly had frequent arguments over horses.

Pereira’s body was found in a municipal garden near Mirador Hotel with injuries on his body.

Pereira had left his residence on a Hero Honda Karizma, which is registered in the name of Shambhu Bhanushali (45), a close friend of the deceased.

The police said Pereira met Shaikh on July 27. The duo had an argument.

In a fit of rage, Shaikh attacked Pereira with a heavy object hitting his head repeatedly and fled from the spot.

The police found about frequent tiffs between Shaikh and Pereira. They suspected Shaikh’s involvement and arrested him.
