In a startling turn of events in Virar, three suspects involved in a shooting incident targeting local businessman Mobin Sheikh have been apprehended by the Virar police. The investigation revealed that the main accused, a notorious figure named Mastan Sheikh, had allegedly orchestrated a murder plot against Mobin Sheikh due to suspicions about a romantic relationship between Mobin and Mastan’s wife.
Mobin Sheikh, a 42-year-old businessman residing in Virar, narrowly escaped a shooting incident on January 15th. The incident occurred amid ongoing romantic and business disputes, leading to Mastan Sheikh orchestrating the murder plot. The Virar Police’s Detection Branch successfully apprehended the prime suspect, Mohit Thakur, in Mumbai, with his accomplice managing to evade arrest.
Mastan Sheikh, along with his accomplice Ajay Singh, had tracked Mobin Sheikh’s movements from various locations with the intention of carrying out the murder. The motive behind the murder plot was revealed to be a one lakh rupee bounty placed by Mastan Sheikh on Mobin’s life. Ajay Singh, recruited from Uttar Pradesh, played a crucial role in executing the plan.
The Virar Police’s senior officials, including Senior Police Inspector Vijay Pawar, Inspector Abhijit Madke, Assistant Inspector Gyaneshwar Fadtare, along with Sachin Lokhande, Sandeep Jadhav, Harshad Chavan, Vishal Lohar, Indranil Patil, and Sandeep Shermale, played instrumental roles in the successful operation and apprehension of the suspects.
Second Attempt Reveals Troubled Past
The motive behind Mastan Sheikh’s vendetta against Mobin Sheikh stemmed from suspicions regarding Mobin’s alleged relationship with Mastan’s wife. This animosity escalated to a shocking incident on July 10, 2023, when Mastan Sheikh attempted to carry out an acid attack on Mobin. Fortunately, Mobin survived the attack, and Mastan was temporarily detained. However, he managed to avoid serious legal consequences.
Despite this initial setback, Mastan Sheikh did not relent in his pursuit of revenge. The police revealed that Mastan orchestrated a second attempt on Mobin’s life, leading to the recent shooting incident. The police emphasized that Mastan’s vendetta against Mobin was deeply rooted in personal and business disputes.
