In a disturbing incident in Pune, a 23-year-old man has been apprehended by the Chaturshringi police for the murder of his girlfriend’s mother. The tragic event unfolded due to an apparent disagreement over the couple’s intention to get married.
The accused, identified as Shivanshu Dayaram Gupta, a resident of Yerawada, was taken into custody after the lifeless body of Varsha Khsirsagar, the mother of his girlfriend, was discovered at her residence in Pashan on January 18.
