Mumbai: A 28-year-old man allegedly killed his neighbour — a 47-year-old tuition teacher — in Malvani Thursday night over past grudges. According to police sources, the accused had fought with the deceased, Jaya Vishwas in the past complaining that she had too many students who allegedly created a ruckus in the area during noontime. Jaya had dismissed the accused’s rant, and that could have made the accused hold a grudge against her, the police said. The accused attacked her with a knife, taking her by surprise. He attacked her when she was out on a stroll with her husband Arpit (54). The accused is absconding since the murder.  

The accused, whose name the police did not reveal as they are looking to nab him, had stabbed Vishwas on her stomach and chest. The Malvani police has registered a case of murder against the accused and are on his lookout.

According to the police sources, the incident took place on Thursday evening at 8.30 pm, when the deceased teacher Jaya Vishwas, a resident of Malvani gate number 2, was out for a stroll with her husband Arpit (54) when suddenly the accused person jumped on her with a sharp knife, and stabbed her in the stomach and chest, killing her on the spot.

After the attack, the accused fled the scene, and the onlookers immediately rushed Jaya to the nearest civic-run hospital, where she was declared on arrival.

Sources said that the accused had in the past fought with Jaya over trivial matters such as her students in the area creating a ruckus in the afternoon.

Deepak Phatangare, a senior police inspector of Malvani police station, said, “The accused and the deceased were residents of the same area, and had differences in the past. We have registered a murder case and are probing the matter.”
