Vasai Police has booked a man in Maharashtra's Palghar district for allegedly clobbering his woman relative to death with a wooden rod over a dispute, an official said on Wednesday.


The incident occurred on Monday around 9.30 pm at Kaman locality in Vasai, newswire PTI reported quoting the official.



The deceased was identified as a 55-year-old, Manjula Kolha, a tribal woman, while the accused is Sagar Bendga, who was her distant relative, the police said.


In the probe, PTI reported, the police found that Bendga used to visit the victim's house frequently and quarrel with her over trivial matters, senior inspector Ramesh Bhame of Naigaon police station said.

"The situation escalated after the victim complained to her daughter about Bendga's behavior. On learning about the complaint, Bendga confronted the victim at her residence on Monday night. After a heated argument, Bendga took up a wooden rod and attacked the woman," he said.

Her husband tried to intervene, but Bendga assaulted him as well, he said.

As a result of the attack, the woman died and her body was sent to a government hospital for post-mortem, the police said.

An offence under Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections 302 (murder), 452 (house-trespass) and 506 (criminal intimidation) was registered against Bendga.

Meanwhile, a 30-year-old labour contractor has been killed allegedly by six persons in Navi Mumbai township of Maharashtra following a dispute over a 'Mathadi' site of headload workers, police said on Wednesday.

The incident took place on Tuesday evening at Sector 10 in Nerul area during which the deceased's wife also suffered injuries, they said.

The deceased and one of the accused, also in the same business, had developed friendship during their time together in a prison, according to newswire PTI.

However, later a dispute arose between them over a Mathadi site of headload workers in Mankhurd area of neighbouring Mumbai, an official at Nerul police station said.

The dispute escalated on February 9, when the contractor and his wife were threatened by a group of individuals near a lake in Navi Mumbai.

On Tuesday, the accused person along with five other people intercepted the contractor and his wife while they were returning home with their child, the official said.

The assailants allegedly attacked the couple with iron rods and sharp weapons, resulting in the man's death. His wife was seriously injured and hospitalised, he said.

Following a complaint by the wife of the deceased, the Nerul police on Tuesday night registered a case against six persons under various Indian Penal Code sections including 302 (murder) and 307 (attempt to murder), and provisions of the Arms Act and the Maharashtra Police Act.

No arrest has been made so far, the police said, adding a probe was on into the case.
