Kandivali murder: Two arrested in connection with Shiv Sena leader's killing

According to the media reports, the CCTV cameras installed in the area have captured the images of the killers and they have been identified.

MUMBAI: mysterious attacker stabbed Shiv Sena leader Ashok Sawant to put on death outside his house in Kandivli in Mumbai on late Sunday.

Apart from Samata Nagar police, Crime Branch is conducting a parallel probe into the incident. The Times of India reported that two men attacked the 62-year-old leader with choppers before fleeing the spot. Police on Monday arrested two persons but the mastermind of the crime is still at large, an official said today. The cops believe that an underworld gang is involved in the case as Sawant, who entered the cable television business a few years ago, had been received extortion calls for a while. The killing took place near Sawant's residence in Thakur Complex while he was returning home with his friend Vinod Sonawane.




Though Sawant was rushed to the nearby hospital soon after the attack, the doctors declared him dead on arrival. Sawant's body has been sent to the Shatabdi Hospital for postmortem.

Sawant is survived by his wife, son and two daughters. The police are also yet to ascertain the motive behind the murder and recover the murder weapon. One of his daughters was to get married on February 5. Sawant, a two-time corporator from Samta Nagar, is the brother of assistant police commissioner Subhash Sawant, who is attached to the anti-terrorism squad.
