Thane crime: The Thane Police in Maharashtra registered an offence against two persons for allegedly forging documents and records of deceased directors of a company and taking over the firm in Thane city, police said on Friday, according to the PTI.


The news agency reported, based on the complaint, the Naupada police on Thursday registered a case under sections 420 (cheating), 463 (forgery) and other relevant provisions of the Indian Penal Code against the alleged accused Ramesh Thakur and Maheshbhai Devilal Joshi, an official said.


According to the complainant, his parents were directors of a company and Thakur was their business associate, he said.


The accused allegedly forged documents and records between 2017 and 2023 and even faked the signatures of the complainant's deceased parents and grabbed the company, the police official said.

Advocate Vaibhav Satam, who represented the complainant in court, said the Thane FCJM had directed the Thane police to register a first information report (FIR) against the accused and file a compliance report, following which the case was registered.

Meanwhile, in an another incident in Thane, the police arrested a 40-year-old autorickshaw driver for allegedly killing his estranged live-in partner in Kalyan town of Thane district on Friday, an official said.

The official of the Kolsewadi police station said the victim, Rasika Kolambkar (36), and the accused Vijay Jadhav, were live-in partners for four to five years.

However, since the last couple of years, differences had cropped up between them over certain issues and they had started residing separately, he said.

Jadhav, an autorickshaw driver, wanted Kolambkar to come back and start living with him again, but the latter was not paying heed to his repeated requests, said the official.

At around 10 am on Friday, Jadhav went to the 'chawl' (an old tenement) in Kalyan town where the woman resided and attacked her with a knife multiple times, he said.

The woman suffered more than half a dozen stab wounds and died on the spot, said the official.

The police registered a murder case under section 302 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and arrested the accused hours later, he added.
