Veena Kapoor was a 74 year old actress residing in Juhu who was allegedly murdered by her 43 year old son Sachin Kapoor after a property dispute and harassment case. She had filed cases against her son, who was working as a home math tutor for harassment in the high court. According to media reports, the murder took place between 6 am and 7 am on Tuesday morning after which Sachin Kapoor was dazed for one hour. After that he packed the body in a plastic bag , put it in a box which he carried in a wheelchair and put it in his car with the help of his household help Lalukumar Mandal. When the security intercepted him, he told them that he was moving household goods or waste ( media reports vary) .
The murder was mainly detected quickly because the elder son of Veena Kapoor, Nevin who was residing in the United States became worried when his mother did not answer his phone calls. He asked the building security to check up on his mother, and when he did not respond, he contacted the Juhu police station. The police broke open the door, but could not find anyone in the house. When they tried to trace Sachin Kapoor, they found his phone location in Panvel.
In the meanwhile Sachin Kapoor was searching for a location to dump the death body, and asked Lalukumar Mandal to help him, Finally they located a deep gorge on the Neral matheran road, and dumped the dead body. The carton was also dumped in the vicinity. When the police arrested Sachin Kapoor he confessed to the crime, and is allegedly planning to argue his case himself.
Sachin Kapoor is well educated, a post graduate in maths, who taught in two schools in Juhu, and later worked as a home tutor. He had a dispute with his mother regarding the 2000 square feet property in Juhu where his mother resided, which was worth more than 10 crores.
