Police said though Chavan is a native of Gulbarga in Karnataka, he has been staying in Pune for the past 40 years. He has been working as a watchman at Oswal plot for the past 20 years and resides in a house on the plot with his wife, sons Rajesh and Umesh, daughter-in-law Sunita and two grandsons. His two daughters are married and live out of Pune, they added.
Preliminary investigations have revealed that Chavan used to often quarrel with his wife and also suspected her of having an affair with their son-in-law. On Friday morning, after his sons Rajesh and Umesh left home for work, Chavan had a heated argument with his wife. As things went out of control, he locked up his daughter-in-law and two grandsons in a room and beheaded his wife with an axe.
