Lohariya murder was well-planned: Police


"Amolik has confessed to ordering the hit after an altercation with Lohariya a month ago," Navi Mumbai police commissioner A K Sharma said.

Police are digging the past of Shettiar. Apart from the 2006 murder for which he was arrested, there are several cases against the BDD Chawl, Naigaon, resident.

Vashi Police are gathering details of all these cases.

Shettiar has also worked on contract for some gangs in the past.

Interrogating officers called him a "sarfira" (crazy). They said he had little regard for rank or seniority of cops questioning him.
