Ex-cop, main shooter held in Mumbai builder’s murder case

A retired police officer and a shooter, who was on the run, were arrested on Sunday in connection with the murder of a Navi Mumbai-based builder outside his office in Vashi, police said.

While one of the two shooters Venkatesh Shettiar was apprehended on Saturday itself after he and his accomplice allegedly assaulted Sunil Kumar Loharia (50), the other assailant Wajid Qureshi (28) was held on Sunday, a police officer said.

‘Qureshi is a resident of Mumbra in Thane district’, he said.

Qureshi’s arrest came on the heels of police nabbing former encounter specialist Samuel Amolik in Mumbai earlier today for allegedly masterminding the gruesome murder. Loharia sustained five bullet injuries and stab wounds after Shettiar and Qureshi allegedly attacked him on Saturday.
