A prime suspect and five others were held by the Navi Mumbai Police in connection with the Sharad Mohol murder case, which is currently being investigated by the Pune Crime Branch.


On Sunday evening, the Panvel City Police squad arrested the accused near the Panvel highway and outside a dance establishment in Vashi, Navi Mumbai, based on specific information. The six people were then turned over to the Pune crime branch, increasing the total number of arrests in the case to 14, stated a PTI report


According to the report, earlier, during an operation on the Pune-Satara highway, Pune Police detained eight people, including the main suspect, Sahil Polekar (20), and two lawyers, seizing firearms and live bullets. The primary suspect, Ramdas Marne, is thought to have been involved in both the planning and execution of Sharad Mohol's murder, according to the recent arrests made by Navi Mumbai Police.


"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 was quoted as saying in the PTI report

On January 5, Sharad Mohol, a notorious gangster with a history of kidnapping, attempted murder, and murder cases, was shot near his house in Sutardara, Kothrud region. He died hours later from bullet wounds to the chest and shoulder. The Pune Police's crime section obtained information regarding the accused's whereabouts in Navi Mumbai while tracking them, leading to the current arrests, the report added. 

"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 told PTI.

According to news agency PTI, a trap was set near the Panvel highway, culminating in the identification and capture of the accused. Sharad Mohol, 40, rose to prominence for his role in the murder of alleged Indian Mujahideen operative Mohammad Qateel Siddiqui inside Yerawada jail, for which he was eventually acquitted. Sharad, who was associated with history-sheeter Sandip Mohol, avenged Sandip's murder by killing Kishor Marne in 2010, assuming control of the Mohol gang.
