Police arrested two security guards for the brutal murder of 19-year-old boy in Mira road, out of which one of the guards had been jailed for his involvement in an attempt to murder case in the Juhu area of Mumbai in 2005.

Abhishek Maan Singh (19) was brutally murdered by two security guards identified as- Subhash Bijlee Pandey (56) and Amit Ranjitkumar Saurabh alias Tiwari (43) in Kashimira on May 29, 2021.

According to the police, the murder which was captured on CCTV cameras was the fall out of a petty tiff between the youngster and the guards who attacked the former with a sharp-edged weapon, leading to Abhishek's death while undergoing treatment at a private hospital.

Both the guards had fled the spot, the police said. A team led by Senior Police Inspector, Sanjay Hazare, under the supervision of ACP, Vilas Sanap, activated their technical surveillance system and alerted their core informer network in and around the region.

The police nabbed accused Subhash Bijlee Pandey from Navsari in Gujarat. Based on information provided by Subhash, the police managed to nab the main accused Amit Ranjitkumar Saurabh (43).

Amit had identified himself as Tiwari while procuring the job, indicating lack of verification of his real identity and antecedents, the police said.

Upon interrogation, the police learnt that Amit had served a seven year jail sentence after being convicted in an attempt to murder case registered in Juhu in the year 2005.

“While a case under section 302 of the IPC has been registered against the duo, we have also sent a notice to the concerned authority to cancel the licenses of the security agency for the serious anomalies in their employment procedure.” said Hazare.

While there are around 45 licensed security agencies in the twin-city of Mira-Bhayandar, the number of illegally operating ones could be much higher. “There are 17 licensed agencies in our jurisdiction and we will ensure that they follow all recruitment norms.” added Hazare.

As per the Private Security Agencies (Regulation) Act, private security agency needs to obtain a no-objection certificate from the police before starting its operations.
