It's a double tragedy for Khar police inspector Gyaneshwar Ganore, who was a part of the probe team who arrested Indrani Mukerjea. After finding his wife, Dipali Ganore (42), murdered and in a pool of blood at their Santacruz home, his 21-year-old son Siddhant was confirmed missing.
Inspector Gyaneshwar Ganore of Khar police station, one of the officers who arrested Indrani Mukherjea in the Sheena Bora case, returned home around midnight to find the door of his flat at Prabhat Colony in Santacruz West locked.
He called up his wife, Dipali, assuming that she had gone to sleep, but her cellphone was switched off. He then used his key to enter the house and found her lying in a pool of blood. Ganore called up the police control room, which rushed a team to the spot.
While the police said they are searching for the youth, a BSc final year student at Bandra's National College, sources said a chilling message was found written with blood next to Dipali's body that read "Tired of her catch me & hang me :)".
Siddhant was detained by the Jodhpur police from Hotel Dhoom where he had checked in after being on the run after killing his mother Dipali using a kitchen knife. Following his detention the Mumbai police took his custody and was brought to Mumbai
Siddhant told the cops that he had been frustrated as his mother was repeatedly asking him to get the marksheet, or insisting on accompanying him to the college to enquire about his marks, which lead him to kill her. He has told the police that there were also frequent quarrels between his parents which he did not like, and he had been angry with his mother for sometime.
