Mumbai, June 23 (IANS) The prime accused in the murders of four men, whose half-burned bodies were found in a jungle here, was arrested Thursday in Uttar Pradesh, Mumbai Police said.

“Uday Pathak used to change his location every night. He was finally arrested from Varanasi,” Joint Commissioner of Police (Crime) Himanshu Roy told reporters here.

The victims - Chetan Dhule, Ganesh Karanje, Dinesh Ahire and Bharat Kundle, all in their 20s - were found with their throats slit and bodies half-burnt in a jungle near Kurar village in northwest Mumbai June 6.

The victims had gone missing June 4, but according to their families, the police registered their complaint only June 6, a few hours before their bodies were found.

According to the police, Kundle, who used to repair water purifiers, had gone to a nearby office to collect some payment along with his friend Sachin Dhuri, when they came across some people, including Pathak, who were consuming alcohol.

Pathak had thrown a glass at Dhuri and Kundle, after which they had a heated argument.

The duo then returned to their locality, gathered a few friends, and went back to thrash Pathak and his friends.

Swearing revenge, Pathak then tricked Kundle and his three friends into meeting them, kidnapped them and got them killed.
