Mayank Mandot, who runs the well-known 'Mayank Tutorial' was stabbed to death by an ex-staffer, Ganesh Pawar. The incident occurred around 7 pm on Sunday at Shivshakti heights, Raigad Chowk in Ghatkopar East after Mayank finished classes.

Ganesh Pawar worked as a caller at classes. He had an altercation with Mayank regarding payment and sudden sacking from the job. The incident occurred after Mayank who teaches mathematics and chemistry, finished teaching his Class 10 students after 10 pm. When Mayank was done with his classes, few students came to talk to him regarding some queries. Pawar also came at that time and went inside.  Pawar and Mayank had a heated argument which is when Pawar attacked with a sharp weapon. 

A local shopkeeper said, "We heard the commotion from the classes and within a few minutes, people gathered right outside the tutorial and they spotted blood on the floor. One person immediately lifted the shutter and informed the police."

Akhilesh Kumar Singh DCP zone 7 said, "Pawar was fired after an altercation overpayment." On Sunday, Mayank was getting ready to leave when Pawar went inside the premises, a tuition student said. The two then got into a heated argument and Pawar attacked Mayank with a chopper.

The cops found Pawar standing still with the chopper in hand and blood dripping and Mayank lying on the floor in a pool of blood. Kundalik Nigade, ACP (Ghatkopar), said "We rushed Mayank to Rajawadi hospital and he died around 8pm. Pawar, too, was injured in the attack and is hospitalised."
