Maharashtra: Retired government official found dead with bullet wounds in Palghar

 

Police identified the victim as Pandarinath Sankhe, a retired Tehsildar of Vasai.

A 72-year-old retired government official was Wednesday found dead with bullet injuries in his bungalow in neighbouring Palghar’s Maswan locality, police said Friday.

Police identified the victim as Pandarinath Sankhe, a retired Tehsildar of Vasai.

“Four bullet wounds were found on the temple of the victim. He had just come back from a morning walk on Wednesday. His wife and security guard heard gunshots and rushed in to see the victim lying in a pool of blood. A licenced revolver was lying close to him,” a Manor police station official said.

Sankhe was declared dead on arrival by local hospital authorities, the official said, adding that the body had been sent to state-run JJ Hospital in Mumbai for autopsy.

A case of accidental death has been registered for the moment but police are not ruling out any possibility, he added.
