Bahu arrested for bizman’s ‘supari killing’ over Rs 300 crore property dispute | India News – Times of India


NAGPUR: The daughter-in-law of 82-year-old Nagpur businessman Puroshattam Puttewar was arrested Thursday for her alleged involvement in murder on May 22 when a car driven by hired killers struck him fatally in Balaji Nagar area of the city over a Rs 300cr property dispute with his legal heirs, police said.
Archana Puttewar, assistant director of town planning department in Gadchiroli and Chandrapur of Maharashtra, is the wife of Puroshattam’s son and ENT surgeon Manish, who had reported his father’s death as a fatal road accident.
Puroshattam was on foot heading to his daughter’s home when he was struck and dragged by the killer car. He suffered critical wounds. Later, doctors declared him dead. However, subsequent investigations revealed it was a premeditated murder, police said.
According to police sources, Archana allegedly planned the murder due to the multi-crore property dispute and ongoing domestic conflicts. Archana allegedly contacted her husband’s driver Sarthak Bagde to arrange the killing. Bagde is on the run. According to confessions from arrested supari contractor Sachin Dharmik, she was the mastermind, police said.
The role of Ajni police is under scrutiny for initially treating the case as a road accident, despite clear CCTV evidence showing the brutal manner in which Puroshattam was hit and dragged. The car driver Neeraj Nimje was arrested under a bailable section and quickly released, raising further questions about police’s handling of the case.
