The incident was reported to Dhantoli police on Wednesday morning after a resident of the same apartment noticed the door broken open.
Gagde, owner of Vatsalya Realtors, owned a flat on the third floor at Keshavkala apartment near Kriplani Turning. Cops informed that he left home with his family for Indore on Monday. In his absence, Gagde has assigned Nityanand Pande, to look after his house.
