Mumbai: The Mumbai police has arrested four people including a woman in connection with the murder case of famous Punjabi writer-poet Amrita Pritam's son Navraj Kawatra.

Savita Gupta, 21, her boyfriend Vinay Bose, 24, Gupta's 17-year-old brother Sidhant and Bose's friend Gaurank Khawale, 21, were arrested on Thursday by the Mumbai police. Navraj Kawatra was murdered on 14th September 2012 at his LIC Colony flat in Borivali.

The police have said that robbery was the motive behind Navraj’s murder, however Mumbai Crime Branch, which is also investigating the issue said, Navraj used to molest Savita that is why he was murdered.

The Crime Branch has raised the question on the involvement of Savita’s brother and her boyfriend in this sensational case.

Police and crime branch found that BPO employee Savita is resident of Warli area in Mumbai.

According to police, Vinay needed Rs 50,000. He told Savita about this after which they planned to rob Navraj. Vinay, Gaurank and Savita’s brother Sidhant visited Kawatra's residence twice on 14th September but failed to rob Navraj as his computer engineer was present at that time.

Later, when computer engineer had left the venue they broke into the flat and allegedly killed him and fled with Rs 55,000 and a camera from the Kawatra's apartment.

However, Mumbai crime branch is narrating a totally different story and claimed that Savita was working as Navraj’s assistant and was getting Rs 7000 a month. Crime branch also said that Navraj used to tell Savita to change clothes and while changing the dress he would capture that video in CCTV camera.   

Initially, Savita was not aware about the installation of CCTV cameras in Navraj’s apartment.  When she suspected that her nude videos were recorded by Navraj, Savita told her brother and boyfriend about this and after which they murdered Navraj.

Navraj Kawatra came to Mumbai 10 years ago from Delhi. The mystery of Navraj’s murdered was solved with the help his mobile phone records.
