The Inside Story

Four Arrested for the Murder of Navraj Kwatra in Borivli, Mumbai

Navraj Kwatra, the son of Punjabi writer Amrita Pritam, was found murdered at his residence-cum-photo studio in Borivli (West), Mumbai, on September 14. On Wednesday, the Mumbai police arrested four persons, including a 21-year-old woman, Savita Gupta, who had been working for Kwatra for the past three months. The others included Gupta's boyfriend, Vinay Bose, 24, Gaurank Khawle, 21, and a 17-year-old boy.

The police claim that the motive behind the murder was robbery, and it was not a pre-planned attack. Gupta had borrowed money from Kwatra and had advised Bose and Khawle to approach the senior citizen when they were in need of cash. The duo conducted a recce of Kwatra’s studio on September 13, but could not execute their plans as the flat was locked. The next day, they approached him posing as courier boys. Gupta’s brother was outside the building to inform them of anyone’s arrival. The accused said they panicked when Kwatra started to scream and smothered him to death. They fled with Rs55,000 and a camera, which have been recovered.

The police cracked the case after six teams, interrogation of over 100 people, and grilling of several eyewitnesses. During questioning, Gupta revealed the involvement of Bose and Khawle, who then admitted to the crime. While Gupta’s sibling was sent to the Dongri Children’s Home, the other three were remanded in police custody till September 25 on Thursday. The Gupta siblings’ parents told the police that they were not aware of their children’s activities and were saddened that the incident had ruined their lives.
