Mumbai: Mumbai police have arrested a man for allegedly killing his employer. The crime occurred because wages were not paid, police said. The victim was stabbed to death in Navi Mumbai, officials said.

No arrests so far

Talking about the case, Navi Mumbai Police said the accused approached his employer, Parevez Ansari, on Friday and asked him to pay his wages. The total money owed was Rs 1,250. However, Ansari told him that he will get his money on June 20.

The refusal led to an argument between the two men. The suspect then attacked Ansari and one of his friends. Both were stabbed with a sharp object, police said. No arrests have been made in the case so far.

The police said that the case is being investigated and that they will arrest the suspect soon. The police are looking at the case from all sides and are also investigating whether the argument over non-payment of money was the only reason for the crime, or whether there was another reason. They also plan to interrogate Ansari’s friend to reconstruct the sequence of events that led to the murder.

Previous cases of conflict between employer and employee leading to murder

This case, reported from Mumbai, is reminiscent of a similar incident in Delhi that took place about two months ago. In this case, a former employee lost his life at the hands of his boss, the owner of a diner.

The man was murdered by his previous employer and his wife. His body was recovered from Dasna in Uttar Pradesh. The deceased worked at a popular eatery in Connaught Place, in the national capital. This murder also occurred as a result of a monetary dispute between the employer and the deceased.
