AHMEDABAD: A 50-year-old autorickshaw driver from Isanpur was stabbed to death after he dropped a woman near CN Vidyalaya in Ambawadi on Tuesday evening. Ellisbridge police have registered a murder case. The cops said that the deceased, Shantilal Dhandhukia, also ferried Amul products. On Tuesday evening, Dhandhukia brought a woman passenger from Isanpur to a hospital near CN Vidyalaya. “The passenger told him that if he waited for her she would take his autorickshaw back home after the consultation,” said a police officer. When the woman reached Dhandhukia’s autorickshaw a while later, she could not find him. A man told her that the autorickshaw driver had been taken to a hospital in a 108 ambulance as he had suffered some injuries to his stomach. At the hospital, Dhandhukia was taken to the operation theatre. He died about an hour after the surgery, cops said. The murder was not caught by CCTVs, said another police officer. Dhandhukia was murdered with an ice pick, said the officer. The cops said Dhandhukia’s son Kaushik is a BCA student at a college in Ghatlodia. Inspector Sumit Rajput of Ellisbrige police said that no clue has been found yet about the killer or killers. “We could only see one autorickshaw which had stopped just behind Dhandhukia’s vehicle when he was waiting for the passenger,” Rajput said. “But the other autorickshaw did not have a registration number so we could not identify the driver.”

Ahmedabad: Seven months after a woman died of Covid-19 in the killer second wave, she has been booked for cheating 24 persons of Rs 47 lakh with the promise of giving them housing subsidies under a government scheme. She did not keep her word and was booked on Saturday, posthumously. According to an FIR filed with Isanpur police, Nisha Shah had been running a fair price shop in Vatva. The FIR said she took money from about 24 people by telling them that she would help them get subsidies to build their own homes. She reportedly took the money between January 2019 and March 2021, ahead of the Covid calamity in the city. After she died in May at 55, the 24 people separately approached Shah’s daughter Heli to make inquiries about their money. Heli told each one of them that she was unaware of her mother’s financial transactions. One of the 24 people, Gulab Kataria, who works as domestic help in Vatva, filed a complaint of cheating and breach of trust against the deceased. Kataria said in her FIR filed with Isanpur police that she had come to know about Shah’s shop in January 2019. In one of their meetings, Shah told Kataria that she could help her if she wanted her own house. Shah told Kataria that she will help her avail of a government subsidy of Rs 3.50 lakh. Kataria was told that houses were being constructed near the Gebanshah Pir shrine in Vatva. Shah told Kataria that she would have to pay Rs 70,000 and the government would provide the Rs 3.50 lakh. Kataria paid Shah Rs 70,000 between January and June 2020 and got receipts for the payments. Kataria said when she had met Shah last, in February, Shah had told her that she will get the subsidy by April or May 2021. As Kataria could not get any information about the subsidy, she went to Shah’s shop and was shocked to learn that Shah had died. Then Kataria realized that 23 others had also lost their money. They all joined Kataria when she went to the Isanpur police station, where the complaint was filed.
