Nagpur: Fuelled over an old enmity, a 27-year old man was murdered by a father-son duo in Mankapur area the intervening night of Friday and Saturday. Both the accused have been arrested.
According to the police, the deceased has been identified as Mangesh Shravan Khote, resident of Plot No. 61, Ganpati Nagar, behind Maharaja Apartment No. 2, Swaminagar. During the initial investigation, police found that a fight had occurred between the deceased Mangesh and accused Jaikishore alias Jocky Rajkumar Lonhare (28), resident of Shrihari Nagar. At that time, the accused Jaikishore had doled out life threat to Mangesh. Subsequently, Mangesh informed his mother Pushpa about the threat by Jaikishore. When Pushpa along with Mangesh went to the house of Jaikishore for asking the reason behind the life threat, the accused again threatened to kill Mangesh. Similarly, in the past, the accused Rajkumar Nandlal Lonhare (56), father of Jaikishore, had also gone to Mangesh’s residence and picked up a quarrel over an unidentified reason.
On Friday, around 7 pm, Mangesh told her mother that he is going to the house of accused father-son duo and will return soon. But he did not return home. Subsequently, the panicky Pushpa searched her son frantically at many places. To her shock, she found Mangesh dead at a place in Shrihari Nagar around 4 am on Saturday. He was murdered probably by the accused Jaikishore Lonhare and Rajkumar Lonhare apparently to settle the enmity score.
Mankapur API C U Patil, on the basis of a complaint lodged by Pushpa Khote, has registered a case under Section 302 of the IPC against the accused father-son duo and started further investigation. Both the accused have been arrested.
