The man was arrested after his three-year-old son's statement, who, along with his nine-month-old brother saw their mother being strangled.

The toddler's version exposed loopholes in his father 'revenge killing' story and helped police to crack the case within 12 hours of the incident.

Salman Shaikh, 28, initially told police that he and his wife Ayesha, 24, and their kids went to Bandra Reclamation when robbers on a bike stopped them. He claimed he struggled with them but the two men strangulated him and his wife, which left him unconscious. But the toddler told police that his 'father had no fight in the car' which raised suspicions about Salman's role, strengthened by the absence of any marks of struggle on Salman's body.

Police then checked Salman's call records, which led them to his two associates Sadiq Khan and Shakir Shaikh. Additional commissioner of police (west region) Vishwas Nangre-Patil said, "We found several missing links in Salman's story and uncovered his role during investigations. We arrested the three for murder and are probing other details."

Salman reportedly continued his relationship with his long-time girlfriend even after marriage to Ayesha and secretly married her a few months ago. Salman wanted to live with his new wife and hence hired his friends to kill his first wife and tried to pass it off as a robbery attempt.

Ayesha's brother Ibrahim Katgaonkar said they recently learnt that Salman was in a relationship with a girl and told his sister about it. Ayesha and her mother-in-law went to the girl's house but she denied her relationship with Salman. "Even when we asked Salman about his marriage to her, he denied it. We were aware that my sister was facing torture in his house but she never complained to us," said Ibrahim.

However, Salman wanted to get rid of his wife and he recently discussed the plan with his two childhood friends. Sadiq and Shakir initially opposed the plan, reasoning with him that Ayesha was a good woman. But they finally accepted Salman's offer of Rs 10,000 each for helping to kill her. Salman also asked one of his friends to call up Ayesha's father regularly for a few days leading up to the incident, saying he wanted to kill his daughter and Salman for 'revenge'.

On Sunday night, Salman and his family went to Bandra and as planned, Sadiq joined him on the way. He went to Carter Road, Bandstand and then Bandra Reclamation, where Shakir was waiting for them. Sadiq strangulated Ayesha inside the car and Salman smothered her, while Shakir entered the car to divert the kids' attention. After killing Ayesha, Shakir and Sadiq tied her up and Salman as well, to make it look like an 'attack'. They then called up Ayesha's father, informing him that they had killed his daughter and son-in-law for 'revenge'.

Ayesha father and Salman's brother rushed to the spot and informed the police. The families took the kids home. "My father tried to revive Ayesha but found she was dead. However, Salman became conscious and we took him to hospital along with Ayesha," Ibrahim said.
