Kandivali murder: Two arrested in connection with Shiv Sena leader's killing

Former Sena corporator hacked to death near his house in Kandivali

The police will also look at footage from CCTV cameras set up in the area.

In yet another instance of a probable political killing in the country, a former Shiv Sena corporator - Ashok Sawant - was hacked to death on late Sunday by two unknown assailants in Mumbai.

Apart from Samata Nagar police, Crime Branch is conducting a parallel probe into the incident. On Sunday night, as soon as Sawant - who was returning home after attending a meeting - alighted from an auto rickshaw near his residence, at least three persons attacked him, stabbing him multiple times with a sharp weapon. Pawar may have brought the gang together and asked Dodhia to arrange for a vehicle while orchestrating the murder, said the police. The police officials reached the spot and rushed him to a nearby hospital, where he was declared dead before admission. Though Dodhia was not present at the scene of the crime, but the police suspect that he had awarded Jogdand the contract to kill Sawant at behest of the main accused.

The pair arrived in the January cold with Meghan wrapped up in a grey woollen coat from Smythe and a Jigsaw scarf. The notes were sent to those who wrote to Kensington Palace following the royal engagement announcement.

Sawant is survived by his wife, son and two daughters.

Media reports said Sawant had entered a cable business, and had been receiving extortion calls for the last few days, and that the Kandivali murder was probably connected to these threats.

A senior police officer told mid-day that the accused were identified after an autorickshaw driver came forward with some doubts. Incidentally, one of his daughters was slated to get married on February 5. Sawant is the brother of assistant police commissioner Subhash Sawant and a 2-time corporator.
