The Inside Story
The housewife’s current boyfriend and an accomplice allegedly pretended to be cops and strangulated the victim with a rope in August; they then threw his body off the Manor bridge near Vasai

Police claim to have solved a murder that occurred in August, and arrested a housewife and her boyfriend for committing the crime. The victim, who was the woman’s ex-boyfriend, was strangulated to death and his body thrown off a bridge near Vasai.

Dongri police arrested Jyotsna More (34), a housewife from Dahisar, and her current boyfriend, Pravin Patil, for the murder of her former lover Vaibhav Achrekar (31). Cops said More had been in a relationship with Achrekar for several years and knew him since childhood. However, she had broken up with him a few months ago.

The victim, a Dongri resident, had been calling her repeatedly and asking to meet her, despite More refusing to do so. The woman told Patil, who lived in the same building as her, about Achrekar’s continuous calls and asked him what to do.
In August, Patil, along with More and another male friend, Michael, called the victim to Mittar shopping centre in Citizen Colony, Naigaon. The two men pretended to be cops and asked Achrekar why he was harassing More. The duo then allegedly strangulated Achrekar to death with a rope, took his body in a car to the Manor bridge, and tossed it into the Bhayander creek.
Two days later, fishermen found the victim’s body trapped in their fishing nets, and reported it to the Valiv police. Cops circulated the body’s picture to all police stations and the victim’s family, who had recorded a missing complaint with Dongri police, identified him.
When police checked Achrekar’s call details records (CDR), they found More’s number had been dialled repeatedly. On being called for questioning, she told cops everything. Police arrested More and Patil on Sunday on charges of murder and destruction of evidence. The accomplice is still absconding.

Missing Dongri man killed by lover, her beau

MUMBAI: Four months after a 34-year-old man from Dongri was reported missing by his family, a police probe has revealed that he was murdered by his paramour and her newfound lover. The woman and her lover have been arrested.

On August 23, relatives of Vaibhav Asrekar reported that he had been missing since three days. Call records of Asrekar's cellphone showed that he had frequent contact with a certain number belonging to a woman identified as Jyotsna More, also a Dongri resident.

More, a married woman, told the police that she had an affair with Asrekar but had severed ties over some dispute. "We found some inconsistency in her statements and so sought her cellphone records which showed that she was constantly in touch with another man, Prakash Patil. This was so even on the day Vaibhav went missing," said a police officer.

Besides, the cellphone locations of all three—Asrekar, More and Patil—indicated that they were all around the same spot in Dahisar the day Asrekar went missing.

When Patil was interrogated, he told the police that More was his schoolmate, and the two bumped into one another after 15 years at a wedding recently. He and More got into a physical relationship, after which More started avoiding Asrekar's calls. "This led to a fight between them, and More took Patil's help," said a police officer.

On August 20, More asked Asrekar to meet her in Dahisar. She introduced him to Patil and a friend of his as 'policemen'. "The two men took him to a flat at Naigaon where he was assaulted before being strangled," said a police officer. His body was put taken to Manor jungle where it was thrown into a river.

The Manor police confirmed having found a body in August. While Patil, who is also married, and More have been sent to police custody, Patil's friend is at large.
