Burnt body of 27-year-old found in Jalna village

Police suspect he was murdered over monetary dispute

The burnt body of a 27-year-old man was found in Ambad tehsil, Jalna district, early on Monday, the Marathwada police said.

The deceased, Anant Shrikant Ingole, a resident of Samnapur village in neighbouring Beed district, is suspected to have been killed over a monetary dispute, the police said.

Limbs tied up

Ingole was travelling from Aurangabad district to his home in Beed when the incident occurred. “It appears that his hands and legs were tied with a rope before he was set on fire. A case of murder has been lodged,” said Ramesh Sonune, sub-divisional police officer, Ambad police station.

Around 1.30 a.m. on Monday, the security guard of a sugar factory in Shahagad, Ambad, alerted the police of a body burning on Patharwada road. “The body was badly charred. We found a half-burnt packet containing Aadhaar, PAN and voter ID cards, and some cash on the body, which helped us identify him,” said Mr. Sonune.

Alerted friend

Ingole had rented rooms in Aurangabad, and was preparing for bank exams. He had recently entered the transport business with a partner. The police suspect the partnership may have soured, leading to murder.

Ingole’s friend Navnath Chavan told the police that Ingole had called him at midnight on Sunday, when he had stopped for dinner. “Chavan said Ingole told him that his life was in danger,” said an investigating officer.
