According to police, Vidya's arrest would shed light whether the killing was the fallout of a financial dispute between him and Hema, or whether it was a contract killing ordered by her estranged husband Chintan, who remains to be under scanner in the case.
"We have sent several police teams to different locations outside the state, where we suspect Vidya must have gone hiding," a senior police officer told reporters without divulging further details.
Meanwhile, police has sealed the warehouse of Vidya at suburban Kandivali (West), where bodies of the victims were found in a drain packed in cardboard boxes. Vidya, who is a resident of Shamsi Housing Society in suburban Kandivali (West), was zeroed in as the main culprit following sustained questioning of the four persons detained in connection with the murders of Hema Upadhyaya (43) and her lawyer Harish Bhambhani (65), who were cremated last evening here in the presence of family and artists.
