Nagpur: In another gruesome act, a 55-year-old man was murdered right at his doorstep of his Jattarodi Lane No 2 residence. His wife too sustained injuries while trying to save him from the assailant on June 1, 2016 between 2:30 pm and 3:00 pm.
According to sources, the victim is identified as Tulsi Dhanlal Chawhan aged 55 years and a resident of Jattarodi Lane No 2. He was said to be working as Sweeper in Nagpur Municipal Corporation. Sources claimed that two unidentified young men in the age group of 35-40 years had come to the locality on two motorcycles. One of the accused parked his black-coloured motorcycle under a lime tree a few yards away from the house and went inside the house. The unidentified man had some conversation with the deceased and after some time, he was allegedly stabbed repeatedly right at his doorstep.
When his wife started raising an alarm, the neighbours rushed to the spot only to find a man with his face covered with a scarf, wearing a orange coloured T-shirt with white lines and a black pant walking away with a bag. He simply walked to his motorcycle and sped towards Bara Signal area.
On hearing the wife’s screams, the neighbours rushed to see a bloodied body of the deceased and his wife too bleeding from her head and hands. Soon someone informed the cops and a team of Imambada Police Station rushed to the spot and dispatched the body to Government Medical College and Hospital for autopsy. They also took the wife of the deceased to hospital since she too had sustained injuries.
According to police officials, the deceased had sustained deep injuries to his neck, fore-head, nose and hands. The doctors had declared him brought dead.
The residents and neighbours of the deceased Tulsi Dhanlal Chawhan aged 55 years claimed that he had purchased this plot and made a proper house and were living here for the past 12 years. The neighbours also alleged that the deceased had as many as four wives. The wife identified as Sita Tulsi Chawhan too had a previous marriage and her husband was already deceased.
The couple (deceased Tulsi and Sita) has one son and one daughter. The daughter was married off but had died two months ago. The son, identified as Trilok Tulsi Chawhan is said to be working as a sweeper and living in Lalbagh area.
The neighbours claimed that the couple did not have much contact with other neighbours.
Meanwhile the cops are clueless as to the motive behind the murder, the contents of the bag which the accused had carried away etc.
