At the same time, cops have mounted a hunt to nab the absconding accused Sunil Satpaise, Nihal Nagose and others.
The three Ugle brothers – Eknath, Keshav and Sanjay – were murdered in cold blood as a fallout of hostility between the accused. The gruesome murders were reported from Bhande Plot area near Shiv Sai Matt on Thursday night. According to sources, a gambling den runner is the mastermind behind the triple murder as the clout of the three Ugle brothers in Bhandeplot area was getting increased. Sources also claimed that these three deceased were working for another goon who was running a gambling den. On the support of that goon, the three deceased brothers were practically creating terror in the area.
The deadly trouble started when two-three families from Bhandeplot area had gone to Bhandara to attend a Mundan (Thread ceremony) ceremony of Shakti Ashok Pande’s son. The families of Nagose, Ugle and Sathpaise were also there. During the ceremony, a brawl erupted between members of Nagose family and Ugle family.
