Police said that (35) and Sapna, who hail from , were married for eight years and had moved to Gavasand. However, Sapna and Arvind started liking each other while working together as fabricators at a private company. Police said, Gaud and Sapna had arguments initially, but recently decided to separate mutually. On March 15, they got divorced and Sapna and Arvind got married.

On Thursday, Gaud called Sapna to come and collect some of her luggage which was lying in his house. However, instead of Sapna, Arvind reached there. When he did not find Gaud there, he called him on his mobile but there was no response.

At the same time, Gaud went to Sapna‘s house where he slit her and their son Karan‘s throats and then committed suicide by hanging himself to the ceiling fan.

Cops said when Arvind returned home, nobody opened the house when he knocked. On peeping inside through window, he saw Gaud hanging. He immediately called police, who broke open the door and found the three bodies.

“Although the couple separated mutually, there may be a possibility that Gaud would not have been able to come to terms with it because of which he killed the mother-son duo before hanging himself,” said M K Swami, police inspector, Vadu police station. Gaud already had a wife in Madhya Pradesh but after he fell in love with Sapna, they both married and fled to Padra.
