On December 16, Sharma and Kolhadkar met at the latter’s residence in Virar. Sharma teased Kolhadkar that he was getting married very late in life and that his wife might have extra-marital affairs after the marriage. Pintu said in his confession before the police that during the verbal argument, he pushed Ganesh following which he died. In order to hide his crime, Pintu cut the body into over 200 pieces using a hacksaw and dumped them into the toilet but the sewage system got locked up, Bajbale added.
