Mumbai: A team of Mumbai Police crime branch will provide assistance to Pune police in probing the murder of noted social and anti-superstition activist Narendra Dabholkar which has sent shock waves through the state.
"A six-member team, headed by a police inspector, was dispatched to aide Pune Crime Branch team, investigating the murder case of Dabholkar," a senior crime branch official told PTI.
The Mumbai police team was focusing on the technical investigation, besides evaluating the sketch of one of the two suspects, the official said. "The squad is proficient in analysing the phone call records. Not only Dabholkar's telephone and mobile phone call records are being verified but also the calls gathered by the Pune police as part of the probe," he said.
The team was also assisting the Pune police in assessing the sketch of the suspect, he added. 69-year-old Dabholkar, who headed the 'Andhashraddha Nirmulan Samiti' (anti-superstition movement), was out on a morning walk in Pune yesterday when two motorcycle-borne unidentified assailants shot him dead.
