On Wednesday, the Virar police said a 29-year-old man has been arrested for killing a 27-year-old married woman at her home when she tried to end the illicit relationship between them. The incident happened late on Saturday night when Amol Ganpat Adavde went to Mayuri More's flat in Vaishnavi Apartment in Virar East while her husband Mahesh More had gone to his native village in Mahad. Mahesh, upon returning from Mahad around 8.30 am on Sunday, found his wife's lifeless body covered in blood and informed the police.
Here it is to be noted that the police arrested Adavde from Nalasopara on Monday night and during interrogation he confessed to committing the crime. The police were able to identify Adavde, who was caught entering and fleeing the apartment on the CCTVs installed in the society, with Mahesh's help. To be noted that Mahesh, who works as a peon at a school, told the cops that Adavde used to work with Mayuri at a imitation jewellery shop. Adavde had come to meet Mayuri on Saturday night when she told him that she wanted to end their relationship and that she was seeing someone else.
However, it is worth mention here that they had a fight, after which Adavde stabbed her multiple times using a kitchen knife. He then locked the door from outside and fled the scene. Adavde was, on Wednesday, produced before a court which has remanded him in police custody, Assistant Police Inspector Sachin Ingole from Virar police station said.
