The reliable sources have revealed to Nagpur Today, that cops have seized the Innova car which was used in kidnapping and murder of the Dixit Nagar based transporter.

As it is suspected that crime started from city precincts, a case of murder was registered here on the basis of complaint given by his wife Parminder (49).
Property disputes could be prime reason
Besides property disputes, police are probing the case from various other angles including cricket betting disputes, money laundering, old rivalry and extra-marital affairs. Supari killing is also under investigation. Bobby was involved in various cases of property disputes including one with builder Moryani and notorious criminal Little Sardar which came to fore during a wedding, sources said.
CCTVs to the rescue
Along with the CCTVs at Kondhali Tol Naka police are examining CCTVs in all the possible areas, where Bobby visited before getting kidnapped. During the scanning of footages, cops observed Bobby talking to an unknown person whose image is not clear. It has been alleged that the unidentified person could be the prime accused involved in the murder.
Bobby had left his office on Thursday night and disappeared since then. The family members approached Jaripatka Police and lodged a missing complaint. An Innova car of Bobby was recovered from Mangalwari Bazaar area on Saturday. On Sunday morning, a passer-by noticed his body lying near a bridge under the jurisdiction of Kondhali police. The spot is about five kilometres away from the Nagpur-Amravati Highway, who later alerted the police. Staff of Kondhali Police Station rushed to the spot. As the police did not find anything at the spot to ascertain identity of the deceased, they sent pictures of the body to the city police which identified him as Bobby Sardar.
