State Home Minister Mishra said police were retrieving data from the gadgets seized from the arrested accused. The data will be analysed and action will be taken into the matter accordingly, as reported by
The accused, who runs a plywood business in Indore along with his father, was trying to escape from Indore but was nabbed before he could, as per reports. There’s no update on his wife’s whereabouts yet.
The accused couple lived in the neighbourhood of the 29-year-old actress, who was found hanging from a ceiling fan in her house in Saibag Colony of Madhya Pradesh’s Indore city on Sunday. Takkar, who was known for her role in serials like ‘Sasural Simar Ka’, left behind a five-page suicide note in which she claimed that Navlani was harassing her.
Takkar’s family members had earlier alleged that Navlani was troubling her since he came to know about her plans to get married. The late star’s brother, Neeraj, recently shared that Navlani first met Takkar at a gym after she returned to Indore from Mumbai during the Covid-19 pandemic.
When things between the two did not work out, he allegedly started threatening the TV actress of dire consequences if she were to get married. Takkar was all set to tie the knot with a California-based software engineer named Mitesh in December this year.
A case was registered against Navlani and his wife under Indian Penal Code Section 306 (abetment of suicide).
