Shaitaan - A Criminal Mind: 70-yr-old woman’s death in Hinjewadi not accident, say cops; grandson, aide held (Episode 51 on 7th July 2013)

'Supari' Killing: Grandson's Contract Murder Unveiled in Hinjewadi, Pune

An investigation by the Pune police crime branch into the death of a 70-year-old woman in Hinjewadi has revealed that her demise, initially thought to be a road accident, was actually a contract killing orchestrated by her own grandson. The victim, Shankuntala Laxman Chavan, was intentionally knocked down by a four-wheeler, made to appear as an accident. The motive behind the gruesome act was an ongoing property dispute.

Following a tip-off, the police arrested the grandson, Santosh Prabhakar Chavan, and his accomplice, Ganesh Uttam Chavan. They are currently searching for the third suspect, Vijaykumar Chandrakant Zadke. The investigators believe that Santosh harbored resentment towards his grandmother after she denied him an apartment in the building she owned. In collaboration with Ganesh, Santosh allegedly offered a contract of Rs 50,000 to Vijaykumar, who closely monitored Shankuntala's activities and intentionally struck her with his vehicle.

The crime branch team successfully apprehended Santosh and Ganesh, recovering the vehicle used in the murder. The police stated that Shankuntala's second son resided in the same building as her, while Santosh lived on a different floor. The dispute arose when Santosh requested an apartment on the third floor, which was denied by Shankuntala. This rejection fueled Santosh's grudge, ultimately leading to the heinous act.
