On June 23, his mother had come to Rupee Nagar to see his new house and later, she fell sick. She had been admitted to a hospital. She had been discharged a few days ago. On July 6, Popat had gone out for some work and Shobha was alone in her house. From 11.15 am to 11.45 am, some unidentified persons hit her on her head and knifed her later which led to her death. A probe in this case was being carried out by Crime Branch unit 1. The police apprehended a minor boy staying near Popat’s house. When he was questioned, he admitted committing the murder.


The minor’s father and Popat Amte are friends and hence, the minor used to visit Popat’s house. However, once, Popat’s mother had pushed him out of the house. The minor boy was angry because he had been insulted in front of everyone. To avenge the insult, he hit Shobha on her head when she was alone and killed her.
