The wife of a police officer, who had investigated the high profile murder mystery of Sheena Bora, was found stabbed to dead in her house.
Upon reaching the house, Dnyeshwar Ganore found his wife in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds at about 1 am on Wednesday, and a smiley was drawn in her blood next to her body with the words; “Tired of her. Catch me and hang me”. Police believe the message was written by their son Siddhanth, who is missing.
According to police, Siddhanth was repeatedly admonished by his mother over his grades of late and she had refused to give him pocket money.
He may have stabbed her in the neck in a fit of rage on Tuesday night, said a source. “She has four to five stab injuries,” said a police officer who inspected the body.
According to the police, Siddhanth is a college dropout and was studying at National College.
Siddhant’s friend also confirmed behavioural changes in Siddhant and said that he started to remain aloof and avoided social media platforms.
The murder came to light when Dnyeshwar returned home at about 11 pm from work and found the door locked. He told police that he waited outside for two hours, assuming that the mother-son duo had gone out.
“Around 1 am, Ganore spotted the keys to his house in the dustbin kept outside the door. He went inside and found his wife in a pool of blood in the bedroom,” a Mumbai police officer said. The Vakola police were alerted and a team immediately rushed to the spot. Dipali was taken to VN Desai hospital where she was declared dead on arrival
