On September 7, 2019, Dinesh got angry with Ravisingh and asked him to leave the job. He then left the place telling Ravisingh to take Rs 2000 from his wife and settle the account. Ravisingh went to Dinesh’s wife Priyanka (24) who was with her son Angul (4) in the house. An argument broke out between them over settlement of dues. Ravisingh lost his temper. He took an iron rod and smashed Priyanka’s head. He also killed Angul with the rod and ran away. In the evening, neighbours noticed that there were no lights in Dinesh’s house. They found it strange because Ganesh idol was installed in Dinesh’s home and usually lights are on in the evening during festivals. The door of the house was open. Neighbours peeked inside and were shocked to find Priyanka and her son lying in a pool of blood on the bed.

Staff from Narkhed Police Station arrived at the spot and sent the bodies for post-mortem. Following a complaint lodged by Dinesh, police registered a case under Sections Sections 302 and 34 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) on September 8, 2019. Later, cops arrested Ravisingh.

Assistant Police Inspector Shubhangi Waze investigated the case and chargesheeted Ravisingh. As the charges were proved against Ravisingh, the court sentenced him to rigorous life imprisonment with a fine of Rs 2000 for the offence under Section 302 of the IPC. For the offence under Section 380 of the IPC, the court sentenced Ravisingh to three years rigorous imprisonment.

Additional Public Prosecutor Rajesh Shyamsunder represented the State.
