Thane murders case: Police form 8 teams

Mumbai :  Thane police have formed eight teams to look into the investigation of the Warekar family murders.  They are also probing the angle of Hasnain Warekar having consulted a Baba and a loan that he had defaulted on.

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.

He then hung himself while holding the knife in his hand. Among his victims were three of his sisters and their children, parents and his wife and daughters. His oldest victim was his 55-year-old father, Anwar and youngest, his three-month-old daughter, Humaira.

Officers of the Thane police informed that they were awaiting the lab tests of the food served that night.
