However, they said the “mastermind”, Vakil Shaikh, who allegedly orchestrated the killing over a business rivalry, is still on the run.
During interrogation, police said it was revealed that Shaikh owed Khan Rs 1.5 lakh, in addition to being in the same line of business as him.
AdvertisingThe victim, Ikhlakh Khan, was run over near Wadala link road at around 9.30 pm on January 14, 2014.
Police said a breakthrough in the case was made because the driver of the dumper was not paid the amount he was promised to carry out the murder — Rs 40,000.
When a bakery product supplier was run over by a dumper in 2014, the police were initially inclined to believe that it was a hit-and-run case.
