Nagpur: In a dramatic development, the lovelorn youth who murdered his paramour and also tried to kill her husband, attempted to commit suicide by consuming poison on Tuesday morning. The accused Sachin Kishore Pendur (26), resident of village Daroda, Tehsil Hinganghat, District Wardha had earlier surrendered at Wadner Police Station in Wardha district and consumed insecticide. Wadner cops rushed him to Rural Hospital in Hinganghat from where he was shifted to a Sewagram Hospital. Soon after receiving information, a team of MIDC police, under whose jurisdiction the murder had taken place, rushed to the Sewagram Hospital to take him into their custody after his discharge.

It may be recalled, the accused Sachin Pendur went absconding after committing the brutal murder of his paramour Gitishwari Madavi, a native of Balaghat district in MP but was staying at an under-construction house in Datey Layout, Jaitala as she was working as labourer there. Three years ago, she was married to Chandrakumar Madavi. After marriage the couple came to Nagpur for work. However, Gitishwari, angry over improper medical treatment of her abortion, left Chandrakumar and returned to her parents’ house and started working independently. At the work, she came in contact with the accused Sachin Kishore Pendur (25), native of Hinganghat tehsil, Wardha district, as his brother Prem was working with Gitishwari. Love blossomed between Gitishwari and Sachin. In December 2017, Sachin took her to an undisclosed destination and both stayed there for 3-4 months. But as the accused Sachin Pendur started torturing Gitishwari, her father took her to his house four days back. Moreover, in order to avoid the accused Sachin coming in contact with his daughter again, the father called her husband Chandrakumar back and sent her with him. This action of Gitishwari’s father left the accused Sachin furious and he had threatened to kill her and other members of family.

The lovelorn accused stuck to his threat. Between 2.30 am and 3 am of Monday, the accused Sachin crashed at the under-construction house of Babre in Date Layout in Jaitala and attacked the sleeping Gitishwari and Chandrakumar with a crowbar. The accused hit the crowbar on Gitishwari’s head hard and killed her on the spot. He also attacked Chandrakumar and injured him seriously with the intention of eliminating him. After finishing his job, the accused Sachin Pendur fled the spot and went absconding.
