Latur: a man arrested for killing an 80-year-old man | Aurangabad News
The accused has been identified as Sandeep Bhosale, a resident of Gurhal village in Nilanga tehsil district. Police Superintendent Nikhil Pingale told TOI: âThe man took out a loan of 5,000 rupees from a private lender, who constantly demanded repayment of the amount. Bhosale claimed he took out the loan to meet basic needs at home because during the lockdown he was unable to find work. ”
As the suspect was unable to repay the loan, he decided to rob an elderly woman from the village. The accused kept an eye on the movements of the deceased – Sheshabai Dudhwate, who worked on a farm – and decided to target her.
On October 6, the accused reached the farm with a sharp weapon and before she could understand anything, Bhosale attacked her and slit her throat.
The accused, during questioning, confessed to stealing two gold chains weighing a total of about 15 grams. The accused kept these gold chains as collateral and took out a loan of 10,000 rupees from a relative and repaid the loan he had taken out from the private lender.
Pingale said some of the workers, who worked on neighboring farms, heard something but did not see the accused.
Nilanga Police Station Inspector Balkrushna Shejal said it was originally a blind murder case as neither the victim’s family nor the police had a clue the suspect as well as the motive for the murder.
The accused was arrested and is currently in police custody.
