Palande held for illegal possession of bullets

Palande held for illegal possession of bullets

Vijay Palande, who was arrested by the Oshiwara police, will be produced before a magistrate on Saturday.

Mumbai: Key accused in the murder case of Arun Tikku and Karan Kakad, Vijay Palande, was on Friday arrested in connection with illegal possession of ammunition in his apartment.

Palande, who was arrested by the Oshiwara police, will be produced before a magistrate on Saturday.

The case under the Arms Act was registered against Palande after 12 nine mm bullets were found by a police team on Thursday during the search of his apartment in Oberoi Springs building in suburban Andheri. Palande and his wife Simran Sood were reportedly staying in this flat.

According to police, Palande did not have any licence for keeping the ammunition.

As per the police theory, Palande had become friends with Anuj, son of Tikku a couple of years ago. He had plans to take over his flat.

However, he saw the plan failing when Arun flew down to Mumbai from Delhi and threw out Dananjay and Manoj, who Palande had kept in the flat after making Anuj sign a two-year lease and license agreement with a German woman. On the fateful day, while Palande took Anuj to Goa in his Mercedes Benz, Manoj and Dhananjaya brutally murdered Arun.

According to police, during interrogation in the Tikku murder case, Palande confessed that he killed Kakkad in April and dumped his body on Mumbai's outskirts. Police later recovered decomposed body parts of Kakkad from forests at Kumbharli Ghat in Chiplun near Mumbai. Money and some personal reasons led Palande to kill Kakkad, they said.
