Sadashiv Peth murder: Cops probe property dispute angle

A day after 65-year-old Tejbahadur Singh Thakur was shot dead by four persons in front of the building he was constructing at Sadashiv Peth, police are probing into the possibility of a suspected property dispute to be the murder motive.

Senior inspector Arjun Sakunde of Vishrambag police station said, "We are probing whether the murder was fallout of a property dispute. We have found that Thakur was a moneylender and was developing a plot in Sadashiv Peth. We are also looking into the CCTV footage to get some clues. Crime branch is also investigating the case."

Around 9 pm on Saturday, four unidentified persons came to the Sadashiv Peth area and called Thakur out of the building. Police said as they were talking to him, one of them shot him in his head.

The police control room received a call at 9.10 pm but Thakur was dead by the time a team reached the spot.

Deputy commissioner of police (Crime Branch) Rajesh Bansode said, "Our teams from Unit I, anti-organised crime cell, anti-extortion cell and anti-dacoity cell are probing the case."
