Thane murders: Hasnain was stuck in a huge debt of Rs 67 lakh
Massacre accused Hasnain Warekar, who mercilessly butchered 14 members of his family before ending his life, had heavily borrowed money from his relatives and was steeped in a huge debt of Rs 67 lakh, investigators probing the mass murder said on Saturday.
According to a senior police officer of Thane Police, Hasnain had borrowed around Rs 67 lakh from his close kin on various occasions under the pretext of doing business. He was also into share trading and police is probing whether he suffered any losses in it, he said.
Police have also learnt that he had taken a room on rent in the nearby Majiwada locality a few months before the killings but the purpose for which he made the move is a matter of investigation, the officer said on condition of anonymity.
Also, forensic reports are awaited only after which several details in the case can be confirmed, he said.
Earlier, during searches at his house, certain medicines pointing to psychological symptoms/illness were recovered, which police said is likely to give some leads into Hasnain’s state of mind before the macabre killings.
