The teams formed by the Thane Crime Branch are at work in various locations across the city including trying to find Hasnain’s last known work place and a business he had started on his own. “So far we have known records of two organisations he worked for – Excelsior in Mulund (2012) and then Atlantic Corporation in Thane.

His relatives have informed that he worked as accountant with a firm in Vashi but we have yet to receive its whereabouts. As far as we know he was unemployed for over three months,” said Ashutosh Dumbare, Joint Commissioner of Police, Thane.In the wee hours of Sunday, Hasnain Warekar murdered 14 of his family members using a butcher’s knife to slit their throats.
