Just two days after a 44-year-old man from Pimpri-Chinchwad was brutally killed by a group of four to five individuals near a private lodge on Sinhagad Road, startling details have emerged. The police on Sunday revealed that the victim's girlfriend orchestrated his murder with the assistance of her second boyfriend.
