A senior citizen man was stabbed to death allegedly by his daughter's mother-in-law over a property dispute in Maharashtra's Thane city, police said on Monday, reported the PTI.


According to the PTI, the police have arrested the accused, Shaguftabegum Rafique Beig (52), for the murder that occurred at a lodge in Bhiwandi town on the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday, an official said.


The victim, Dastagir Allabaksh Sheikh, 64, was attacked with a knife and his throat was slit in a room at the lodge, he said.


The lodge manager discovered the victim's body and alerted the police, the official said, adding that the murder was due to a property dispute, as per the PTI.

Meanwhile, in an another incident, the Navi Mumbai Police nabbed a prime suspect and five others in connection with the gangster Sharad Mohol murder case which is being investigated by the Pune crime branch, an official said on Monday, reported the PTI.

Acting on specific information, a team of Panvel City Police on Sunday evening nabbed some of the accused from the Panvel highway and others outside a dance bar in Vashi in Navi Mumbai, he said, adding that the six accused were handed over to the Pune crime branch, as per the PTI.

The number of persons arrested in the case so far has risen to 14.

Pune Police had arrested eight persons, including prime suspect Sahil Polekar (20) and two lawyers, from a spot on the Pune-Satara highway along with firearms and live bullets.

"The persons nabbed by Navi Mumbai Police include the main suspect Ramdas Marne believed to be involved in the conspiracy and execution of Mohol's killing," the official said.

Mohol, a history-sheeter with cases of kidnapping, attempt to murder and murder registered against his name, was shot at by three persons near his house in Sutardara in the Kothrud area on January 5. He died hours later in a hospital from bullet wounds in the chest and shoulder.

Pune Police's crime branch was hot on the trail of the accused persons and received information that they were in Navi Mumbai, the official said.

The information was passed on to Navi Mumbai Police following which a trap was laid near Panvel highway.

"Police spotted vehicles of the accused by the highway and nabbed some of them while the rest were apprehended from outside a dance bar in Vashi," the official said.

Mohol (40) rose to fame after he and his aide were accused in the murder of suspected Indian Mujahideen operative Mohammad Qateel Siddiqui inside Yerawada jail here. He was later acquitted in the case.

As per police, Mohol, who hailed from a Mutha village in Mulshi tehsil, was associated with history-sheeter Sandip Mohol, who was killed by the rival Kishor Marne gang in 2006.

Sharad Mohol took the reins of the Mohol gang and avenged the murder of Sandip by killing Kishor Marne in October 2010.
