In a chilling incident, the wife of a Mumbai police officer who is investigating the Sheena Bora murder case was found dead in a pool of blood. Police sources say the couple’s 21-year-old son is the culprit.

Police inspector Dnyaneshwar Ganar’s wife Dipali (42) was found stabbed to death at their Versova house on Tuesday night, and their son Siddhant has gone missing since then. A message was written with her blood that read – ‘Tired of Her. Catch me and Hang me.’

Police inspector Dnyaneshwar Ganar, who is posted at the Khar station, came home at around 11 pm on Tuesday. He knocked on the door several times but received no response. He also tried calling Dipali and Siddhant, but no one answered.

He later spotted the keys to the house in a dustbin and went inside. That is when he found his wife in a pool of blood. Police sources say that there are five to six stab wounds on her body.

According to a report by the Hindustan Times, Siddhant had dropped out of an engineering course and was studying at National College. His friends said that he had been keeping aloof for the last two months, and avoided social media platforms. Siddhant was repeatedly admonished by his mother over his grades of late and she had refused to give him pocket money.

The police also say that Rs 2,00,000 is missing from Ganar’s home.
