Murder of Sheena case cop's wife: Son detained
The 21-year-old son of a city police inspector, whose wife was found brutally murdered in their flat in suburban Santa Cruz on Tuesday night, was detained in Jodhpur on Thursday by a team of Mumbai police in connection with the crime, a senior officer said.
Siddhant Ganore, who has emerged as the prime suspect in the case, was detained by a special team of Vakola police who are probing the case.
Deepali Ganore (42), wife of Dnyaneshwar Ganore (49) who was part of a team that had probed the sensational Sheena Bora murder case, was found dead with her throat slit in their flat located at A G Park in Prabhat Colony. Dyaneshwar is currently attached with Khar police station.
"We tracked him (Sidhant) to Jaipur on Wednesday and sent a special team of Vakola police. We came to know this morning that he has fled to Jodhpur and is putting up in a hotel there. Since it would have taken six hours to reach Jodhpur via road from Jaipur, we sought the help of local police in Jodhpur," said Anil Kumbhare, DCP, Zone VIII.
Based on our request, Jodhpur police detained him from the hotel and handed him to our police team, he said.
