Four men allegedly entered the home of Shiv Sena leader Ramesh Jadhav, and stabbed him; locals say he would speak up against the gang, who molested women

In a chilling reminder of the Keenan Santos and Reuben Fernandes murders, a local Shiv Sena leader from Malad was stabbed to death with sharp weapons in his own home, allegedly after he protested and spoke up against four goons who would regularly molest women in the area.

The Sena man died on the spot. A case has been registered with Dindoshi police. According to the police, the deceased, Ramesh Jadhav, owned an imitation jewellery business and was a resident of Gangaram Chawl at Kot Dongri, Malad (East).

Police said one of the accused was identified as Gullu Ali Sajida, the father of the 15-year-old boy who slashed his friend’s neck in an English-medium school based in Malad, in July. The other two were identified as Yusuf Sajida and Sohil Ansari, and one is yet to be identified.

Local sources said Jadhav used to resist and act against the accused, who allegedly molested the women in the area. Anil Alkunte, another local Sena leader, said, “The accused would always molest girls in our area and Jadhav would fight against these acts and put up a resistance. He was killed for this.”

According to the police, the incident occurred yesterday around 6 pm when Jadhav was alone at home. The four accused forcibly entered Jadhav’s house and attacked him with sharp weapons. They fled from the spot thereafter. All the four are absconding after the incident.

In October 2011, two young men, Keenan Santos and Reuben Fernandes, had been killed after they put up a fight against goons who had made indecent gestures against one of their female friends outside an Andheri restaurant.

In July, mid-day had reported that a 15-year-old boy, a student of Std VIII at a Malad-based school, had stabbed his school senior, a Std X student. The attacker had been fighting with another boy in school, allegedly to impress a girl, and the victim had stopped him from doing so.

Angry at the interference, the boy called his senior near the toilet two days later. When the Std X student met the boy, he was attacked with a shaving blade. The victim received 38 stitches, and the boy was arrested for attempt to murder, by the Dindoshi police.

Mumbai - A day after a Shiv Sena activist was stabbed to death at his home in Malad East, tension gripped the area Wednesday even as police arrested five suspects, one of them a minor.

The victim, Ramesh Jadhav (28), was murdered after he intervened in a fight between his younger brother and two other men near his home. The assailants fled after attacking Jadhav with swords and other sharp weapons.

The arrested suspects have been identified as Shahrukh alias Shoaib Sajida (22), Imran Anwar Sajida (23), Gullu Wali Mohammad Sajida (40), Yusuf Wali Mohammad Ansari (40) and a 17-year-old boy.

After the murder, activists of the Shiv Sena, Bajrang Dal and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad took to streets, forcing shops and other establishments to down shutters. They also ransacked the home of the suspects, dumping their belongings onto the street. Police claimed to have rounded up several of them from Dindoshi and Kurar for rioting.

Police deployment has been stepped up in the area as a preventive measure. “We have made sufficient deployment in the area. There is no communal tension in the area, which many parties are trying to create,” said Kishor Jadhav, Additional Commissioner of Police (north region).

According to the police, the incident occurred at 4.30 pm in Khot Dongri in Dindoshi.

Locals in the area said the suspects often picked fights and would get violent. Jayesh Trivedi, an eye-witness, said they first assaulted his brother and mother when Ramesh’s younger brother Babu came to their rescue. When they started assaulting Babu too, Ramesh, who was returning home, attempted to intervene. “He told the assailants he did not want any trouble and asked them to go home. But Shahrukh and Imran called other accomplices for help. They chased down Ramesh and started stabbing him across the chest and in the stomach. Ramesh tried to fight back, but was overpowered. The assailants fled after realising Ramesh was dead,” Trivedi said.

Ramesh was rushed to Ashoka Hospital where he was declared dead upon arrival.

The police arrested three men on Tuesday night and the others two, including the minor, on Wednesday. “They have been charged with murder and remanded by court to police custody until October 28,” said an officer at Dindoshi police station.

Ramesh, who is survived by his wife Nisha and one-year-old daughter Arya, was the main breadwinner in the family, also providing for his younger brother and mother. His father passed away in 2000. He ran a small imitation jewellery business near his home.

Less than 48 hours after five people were arrested in connection with the murder of a Shiv Sena worker in Malad, Mumbai police commissioner Rakesh Maria shunted out five police officers, including an assistant commissioner of police (ACP), to side branches on Thursday.

Dhananjay Kulkarni, Mumbai police spokesperson and deputy commissioner of police, detection, confirmed ACP Rajendra Kotak (Dindoshi division), senior inspector Subhash Dafale, inspector Arun Rajane, assistant inspector Prasad Pitale and sub-inspector Nitin Khairnar had been transferred out of the Dindoshi police station.

Although officers claimed the transfers had been ordered on administrative grounds, sources said the top cop had shunted them as they had failed to handle the situation satisfactorily.

On Tuesday, 27-year-old local Shiv Sena leader Ramesh Jadhav was stabbed to death while trying to resolve a fight between two groups at Malad (East). As news of the murder spread in the vicinity, a number of Shiv Sena workers had gathered outside the Dindoshi police station demanding action against the accused, following which the five men including a juvenile were caught. Senior police officers, including the Maria, had visited the spot.

While Dafale has been transferred to the protection and security branch, the other four officers have been transferred to the local arms division. “They were transferred on administrative grounds,” Kulkarni said.

Senior inspector of JJ Marg police station Shashikant Surve has been sent to the Dindoshi police station, the police said. Meanwhile, eight other senior inspectors were also transferred in the city in routine transfers. Five inspectors were promoted as senior inspectors.
