Sanghvi panicked when Jitendra did not take his ransom call seriously. He then went to Navi Mumbai and murdered Aditya and dumped the body near Pali village in Raigad district.
Meanwhile,a Borivali cricket bookie has identified Sanghvi as a regular customer.
Interestingly,the bookie identified Sanghvi as Rajesh,a name Sanghvi used while making the ransom call to Jitendra. Investigations have revealed both accused were habitual gamblers and did not restrict themselves to betting on cricket matches,said Chavan.
