A man got arrested for allegedly killing his former girlfriend and making it look like a suicide in Maharashtra. The 20-year-old victim's body had found near railway tracks and they nabbed the accused with the help of CCTV footage. Police said he left a note and messaged the victim's father using her phone, falsely accusing her husband of abetting suicide.
The police on Wednesday arrested Sachin Gaikwad, a resident of the MHADA colony in Maharashtra's Jalna city, for killing his former girlfriend Deepali Ramesh Shindge who had found dead near a railway track on December 21, inspector Shyamsunder Kauthale said.
In the suicide note as well as the text messages to her father, the victim allegedly blamed her husband Avinash Wanjare, for harassing her and forcing her to take the extreme step, he said. The victim had clandestinely married Wanjare six months ago, he added.
The police arrested Wanjare based on a complaint registered by the victim's father, he added. However, the post-mortem report revealed that the woman had died of severe head injuries inflicted by a blunt object.
On scanning the CCTV footage from the area, the police found that Gaikwad had taken the victim on the two-wheeler the day she died, the official said. During interrogation, the accused confessed that on December 21, he had taken the victim to Iniwadi, where he killed her after a heated argument and later abandoned the body near the railway track to make it look like a suicide, he said.
