A man has been arrested and another booked for allegedly plotting to kill a Titwala-resident with whom the two had old business disputes, police said.
Senior Inspector B A Kadam of Khadkpada police station in Kalyan division told PTI that Sachin Parachkar (27) was arrested yesterday from a hotel near here when he, armed with a chopper, was on his way to kill complainant Vinod Vishe.
"Pacharkar had an old dispute with Vishe as the latter allegedly cheated the accused's father of Rs 10 lakh in a business deal involving the sale of a room in Titwala," the official said.
He said that one more person, who partnered Vishe in a construction business, had also been booked as he too had a dispute with him and allegedly was helping Pacharkar carry out his plan.
"A case has been registered under relevant sections of the IPC and the Arms Act against them. Further investigations are underway," Kadam said.
