Police has arrested four persons after two friends were murdered in Nagpur, Maharashtra, in the early hours of Friday, an official said.

An official of the Wathoda police station told newswire PTI that one of the accused, Kiran Shende, had bought a motorcycle in deceased Sunny Sarudkar's name but had stopped paying EMIs, leading to the financial institution threatening action against the latter.

“This led to a dispute. Sarudkar and his friend Krishnakant Bhat went to confront Shende at around 12:15am. Sarudkar and Bhatt were bludgeoned to death by Shende, his brother and two friends, including a juvenile,” he said.

Shende, his brother Yogesh, friend Vikas Kohre and a juvenile were held during the day and have been charged with murder, the official added.

In a separate incident, a man was arrested in Maharashtra's Solapur for allegedly killing his 14-year-old son with a sodium nitrate-laced drink due to frustration and anger over his behaviour, a police official said on Friday.

Accused Vijay Battu (43) has claimed he was angry as there were constant complaints from school about Vishal Battu, while other issues included the deceased watching explicit content on his phone, neglecting studies and picking up fights with his sister, Inspector Ajay Jagtap of Jodhavi police station said.

"On January 13, Vijay and his wife Kirti lodged a missing persons complaint after Vishal did not return home. His body was discovered on the same day by the road near Tuljapur Naka, after which an accidental death case was registered."

"However, we sensed some foul play. His father Vijay's behaviour was also suspicious. He was taken in for questioning, during which he confessed to giving his son a cold drink laced with sodium nitrate and then abandoning the body near Tuljapur Naka," the official said.

Vijay Battu was arrested on January 29 and has been remanded in police custody, Senior Inspector Rajendra Karankot said.

Meanwhile, a 27-year-old woman was arrested after the police busted a sex racket at a resort in Mira-Bhayander town of Maharashtra's Thane district, an official said on Friday.

The police's anti-human trafficking cell (AHTC) raided a resort in the Uttan area of Mira-Bhayander on January 29 and rescued three women in their 20s during the operation, senior inspector Sameer Ahirrao said.

The accused, Artidevi Pankajkumar Lehar, was arrested under section 370(3) (trafficking) of the Indian Penal Code, he said.

Acting on a tip-off, officials from the AHTC sent a decoy customer to the resort and apprehended the accused while she was negotiating a deal, the official said, adding that further probe is underway. (With inputs from PTI)
