The Crime Branch Unit 12 recently apprehended the main accused allegedly responsible for a double murder committed in Kurar 22 years ago. In 2001, Jaharbi Rehman, 47, and her spouse Abdul Rehman were killed at the Goodluck Hotel in Kandivali East.

According to the police, the accused, Yashwant Shinde, intended to marry Jaharbi's daughter. However, Jaharbi and her husband arranged for their daughter to wed someone else.
