Arrest Made in Darshana Pawar Murder Case; Prime Suspect Rahul Handore Apprehended in Mumbai

Pune, 22nd June 2023: A significant breakthrough has been made in the Darshana Pawar murder case, as the prime suspect, Rahul Handore, has been arrested. The Pune Rural Police apprehended Handore in Mumbai, four days after the heinous crime was committed.

According to officials, it is suspected that Rahul Handore murdered Darshana Pawar due to his marriage proposal being rejected by her. Handore had expressed his desire to marry Darshana, but her family decided to arrange her marriage with another individual after she cleared the Maharashtra Public Service Commission (MPDSC) examination.

Despite Handore’s request for more time, the family turned down his appeal.

Darshana Pawar, who had achieved the third rank in the examination, was found lifeless at the base of Rajgad fort. The post-mortem examination confirmed that she had been murdered, revealing signs of injuries.

On June 12, Darshana Pawar and Rahul Handore had gone for a walk in the vicinity of Rajgad Fort, having arrived on a motorcycle. CCTV footage from a nearby hotel captured Rahul Handore descending from Handore Fort alone around 10 am. Since then, he had been missing.

Authorities were uncertain about Rahul Handore’s whereabouts until recent developments shed light on his movements. Police Inspector Datta Bagwe from Warje Police Station reported that the last known location of the missing suspect was Katraj. However, he disappeared two days after being spotted there.

Subsequently, money was withdrawn from Rahul Handore’s ATM card in New Delhi, two days after his disappearance from Pune. Late on Sunday night, he had a phone conversation with one of his relatives, during which he mentioned leaving Pune after an argument with a friend. He abruptly ended the call without providing further details. When his phone’s location was traced, it was found to be in Kolkata.

The arrest of Rahul Handore marks a significant breakthrough in the investigation of the tragic murder of Darshana Pawar. The police will now proceed with the legal process to ensure that justice is served and the truth behind this heinous crime is brought to light.
