The Bombay High Court has granted bail to a cop’s son, who was accused of killing his mother at their residence in the year 2017. Justice Judge Ajey Gadkari granted bail to the 20-year-old accused as he had no other criminal record in the past year.

Accused Siddanth Ganore had killed his mother Dipali Gangore on March 23, 2017, over getting tired of the daily argument between them. Siddanth allegedly drew a smiley face with the victim’s blood near the body. As per the reports, the accused had fled to Jodhpur on May 25, 2017, from the crime spot. However, he got arrested and has been in jail since then.

Ashok Mundargi counsel of the accused said there was no evidence against Siddanth. The prosecution opposed the bail appeal and said the deceased was last seen with the accused person. As he had absconded from the spot after committing the crime.

The justice judge observed that absconding may lend weight to the other evidence establishing the guilt of an accused. Though there is hardly any evidence of guilt.

The judge said, “Even an innocent person may, when suspected of grave crimes, attempt to evade arrest. Absconding is a weak link in the chain of circumstances and is not conclusive either of guilt or a guilty conscience.” The Bombay High Court finally granted bail to the accused and taken Rs 25,000 on the surety.

Noose

Unable to reconcile to the demise of their mother, three siblings — two men and one woman — ended their lives in a suicide pact.

The incident happened on Saturday.

The bodies of the three were found hanging in the dining room when the police broke open the door. Their father had found the door locked when he came home and then informed the police.

One of them was a former school teacher and another an ex-employee of a private company.

The siblings had quit their jobs after their mother’s death.

According to police, a suicide note found on the bodies said the siblings were “unable to bear the loss of their mother”. The two brothers, including one who was disabled, and their sister allegedly took their own lives when their father — a retired engineer of the agriculture department — was not at home.

The father, Aditya Prakash Awasthi, 60, told police his wife had died of illness in September last year. Since then, his three children Preeti, 25, Gagan, 35 and Pawan, 30, were disturbed.

While Pawan had been employed in a private company in Lucknow, Preeti was working as a school teacher.

“They quit their jobs after my wife passed away. I apparently could not fill the void left by her death as all my children were very close to her,” said Awasthi.

SHO Kotwali police station Ajay Mishra said that neighbours told police that the siblings had stopped socializing after their mother passed away and kept to themselves. “It appears to be a case of suicide and a suicide note was also found. Bodies have been sent for autopsy,” he said.
