MUMBAI: Police solved a case of murder of a 35-year-old man with the arrest of two men from Andheri within 12 hours after the body was found near Versova Jetty on Friday. The victim identified as Vikram Nishad died after he was stabbed multiple times by the duo—Sandeep Roy (22) and his aide Ganshyam Das (50)—late on Thursday over a petty financial dispute, said the Versova police.
DCP Abhishek Trimukhe formed the team after Versova police received a call informing about an unidentified dead body with multiple injuries was found near the jetty at around 11 am by locals. “The team with the help of local intelligence tracked the duo within 12 hours. They have confessed to killing the victim who hailed from Sultanpur in UP and resided on the roadside and did odd jobs. It seems financial dispute led to the killing,” said Trimukhe.
