NAGPUR: The real life episode unfurled at Vir Chakra colony in Gittikhadan on Friday late night seems to be straight out of the pages of a raunchy illicit love-story novel with the ingredients of drugs, sex and debauchery.
Siddharth Naik (Gupta), alias Mohit, aged 22, who was appearing in law examinations in Madhya Pradesh, was found dead and without clothes on the bed of his married girlfriend who also had a five-year-old son. Sonia (name changed) too was found in her sleeping gown beside him when Siddharth’s family reached the place. Police feel that Sonia must be sitting beside her paramour’s body for around five hours while her son Romit (also name changed) playing around. Siddharth was frothing.
Sources in the Gittikhadan police station said that Sonia too seemed to be under influence of some strong narcotics. Police has seized some black powder, which both Siddharth and Sonia may have inhaled, before retiring to bed. It has been also learnt through Sonia’s son that Siddharth had a quarrel with his mother on Friday.
Only child of his parents, Siddharth had left home on Thursday morning. Siddharth told his mother Sangeeta that he was going out of station for work. Siddharth worked as a clerk with a beetlenut trader in Itwari and also drove hired cars. Siddharth’s mother Sangeeta started worrying for her son when he did not return in the night. He also did not answer calls.
The matter took an interesting turn on Friday morning when a child’s voice on the other side, likely to be Sonia’s son, was heard when Siddharth was contacted on his cellphone. “We were surprised as another man answered the call and said that it was wrong number. There were no more replies after that in the day,” said Ashok Gupta, a relative of Siddharth. “In the night, once again a child picked up the cellphone and said Siddharth was sleeping at their place,” said Gupta. “If the woman’s husband is away then who was the other man who had picked up the phone in the afternoon. The woman’s son was referring him as an uncle,” said Gupta.
Sonia in her statement before the Gittikhadan police claimed that Siddharth had come on Thursday night but had gone for work on the following day. He had returned in the evening with the black powder which they consumed together and had dinner. Later, Sonia claimed that she had spotted Siddharth vomiting blood and later fell silent with froths coming out of the mouth.
Gittikhadan police has registered the case as accidental death.
Sub-inspector AA Kurade of Gittikhadan police station said that the case is being investigated from all angles. Prima facie investigation suggests that Siddharth’s death is likely to have been caused by drug overdose followed by a romp in the bed. Siddharth’s family members were told by a friend about existence of Sonia in his life. It is learnt that Siddharth and Sonia were neighbours at Imambada before the woman tied nuptial knot with a teacher following a brief courtship.
Sonia’s husband works in Nanded and came to his wife very rarely. Around four months Sonia and her husband had moved as tenants into residence of the Durugkars. Siddharth frequently visited Sonia’s place when her husband was away. “She used to claim that Siddharth was a brother but we did not like his visits. So we had asked Sonia to vacate the place,” said a woman from Durugkar family. She also said that Sonia’s husband was repeatedly calling his wife on Friday but she didn’t answer.
