Accused allegedly killed his wife in November last year
The city police have booked a 30-year-old software professional for attempting suicide and hiding facts after he allegedly murdered his wife in November last year.
Police said Vijay Sambhaji Thorat, working with a company at Bawdhan, along with his four family members, had killed his wife Vaishali Thorat (26) when she demanded her name be included in the ownership title of a flat owned by the couple.
The Hinjewadi police filed murder cases against Vijay, his mother, father, brother and sister under Sections of the Indian Penal Code after Vaishali's father lodged a complaint against them. The five have been in jail since then.
"During investigation, we found that soon after the incident on November 17 last year, Thorat checked in at a lodge in Dange chowk area. He consumed alcohol and attempted suicide by gulping 100 tablets of Phenobarbital and slit his wrists. However, he was noticed by the lodge employees and was rushed to a hospital," said Nilesh Jagdale, PSI. He has been booked under Sections 309 (attempt to suicide) and 176 (1) (hiding information from a public servant) of the IPC.
The victim, Vaishali, was the daughter of Maharashtra Mendhi Sheli Vikas Mahamandal Limited president Ramrao Sakharam Wadkute (58).
