The Pune (rural) police arrested the accused, Sanjay Shinde, at Ahmednagar Road in the evening. According to the police, two of the victims, Parashu Pawar and Gopal Shinde, were Shinde’s relatives with whom he allegedly had a monetary dispute. Shinde is suspected of having had a feud with the third victim, Anil Jadhav. The police is looking into whether Shinde has psychological problems.
