The Nallasopara police arrested a 30-year-old for slitting his brother-in-law's throat after his sister allegedly committed suicide. According to the police, the accused has been identified as Ravindra Kale. The deceased Akash Kolekar, 25, and Komal had married against their family's wishes, but police said, the reason behind Komal's suicide is yet to be ascertained.
