Sujit met the woman through a dating app. He proposed marriage to the woman but she refused. On being rejected, Sujit decided to teach a lesson to the woman.

An official of the Cuffe Parade police station said that the letter had come through post, due to which no electronic evidence was being received.

“Sujit lives with his mother in Lokhandwala. He is educated but was not able to find a woman for marriage. Sujit met this woman on the dating app and was pressurising her to marry. But she was refusing. Sujit wrote this letter in the name of the woman to teach her a lesson,” the police official told Mid-day.
