    "The man hung himself after killing 14 members of his family. Reason (behind killings) is not known yet," said Ashutosh Dumre, joint commissioner of police, Thane.

    Survivor Subia Barmar raised an alarm after Hasnail committed suicide which alerted the neighbours. A relative of the family told TOI that earlier too, an attempt was made by the accused to eliminate the family by poisoning them but the father took the blame on himself.

    The residents of Thane woke up to one of the most horrific news about the murder of 14 members of one family in Kasarvadavali area on February 28.

    35-year-old Hasnain Anwar Warekar killed his 14 family members and then hanged himself in their house in Kasarvadavali on Sunday around 2 am. While the neighbours and the relatives of the family are yet to recover from the shock, Kaif Rizwan Warekar (23), Hasnains' cousin in complete shock said, "Hasnain was a man with a golden heart, and used to love his family and live for them."


    Hasnain who was a senior accountant working in Turbhe used to get almost a Rs 1 lakh salary a month and was expecting an appraisal also next month, which is one of the reasons that his friends and neighbours are finding it difficult to digest that financial problems could be a reason for the killings.

    According to the DCP Zone 1, Sachin Ashok Patil of Thane, "Hasnain had slit the throats of the family members which included his four sisters, his wife and mother, father, and the children of the family, not sparing his own three month old daughter and five month old (sister's daughter) and then later killing himself."

    One of the sisters, Suviya Sojhav Barmar who survived the attack has been admitted to Titan hospital in Thane for treatment.

    The neighbours of the family, Mohammad Zain Mohammad Islam said, "The entire family was very decent and a happy go lucky family. Hasnain along with his sisters came to see us last night as he had invited the entire family for a get together, after he returned from the office."

    "Suviya, the survivor was not coming for the dinner as her daughter was not keeping well. Hasnain drove to her in-laws place in Mahapoli at 8.30pm saying that he would drop her back next morning and they reached home at 10.30pm," added the neighbour.

    Rizwan Warekar (uncle) said, "Around 3am, the neighbours came in to say that there is someone screaming from the house, so we rushed to the house and saw Suviya crying for help and shouting that the brother has killed everyone. So we immediately got her out of house and informed the police and then rushed to the Titan hospital with her."

    Rizwan added, "Such things were never expected from Hasnain as from his childhood, he was very simple and a good person with a closed knit of friends. He used to go office, and offer namaz five times a day. A person who used to feel scared while seeing blood can never make such mistakes."

    "Hasnain's father Anwar Warekar (65) was a hard working man who worked earlier with the Vera chemical company in Thane and now was the chief trustee of the Anant Nagar Dargah. He was also an estate agent. Anwar and I were close friends from childhood and he was very proud of his son Hasnain for his innocence and dedication towards his job and family. Hasnain as a child used to come to my place to play and we have seen him growing over all these years. His daughter was his life. It is very hard to believe that he has done this," expressed Rizwan Patel (56), friend of Hasnain’s father.

    However, the police have not ruled out the angle of property dispute which might have provoked Hasnain commit such a crime, but the relatives of the family said, "It cannot be because of the property dispute. The family was very wealthy and Hasnain's love for his sisters was never ending," added Rizwan Warekar (uncle).

    One more rumour doing the rounds is that almost two years back in a family get together; Hasnain had got energy drinks where he gave two tablespoons of energy drinks to the entire family. All the members present enjoyed the drinks and had little more of the drinks which caused some health problems because of which all of them were admitted to the Titan hospital, along with Hasnain.

    The police has started the house search for further investigation and sent the food samples also for testing of which the reports are awaited.

    THE semi-urban village of Kasarwadavli, on the fringes of Thane city and a little over 45 km from Mumbai, woke up on Sunday to the gruesome news of 14 murders in a family. Hasnain Warekar, 35, employed at a financial services firm in Navi Mumbai, had allegedly slit the throats of his family members, including his wife, parents, sisters, and seven children, apart from his own three-month-old daughter, before hanging himself.

    One sister survived the murderous spree, her account to investigators now critical to the police’s reconstruction of what happened in the Warekar home between 2 and 2.30 am Sunday.


    Police suspect Hasnain sedated his family members before slitting their throats. He had earlier invited his three married sisters over for dinner. Police have not found any motive for the murders so far, though they are looking at a possible property dispute.

    Police were alerted by the neighbours, who around 3.15 am rescued Hasnain’s 21-year-old sister Subia Bharmar. She reportedly woke up just before Hasnain attacked her and managed to push him away as he swung the knife at her throat. Bleeding from the gash below her chin, she locked herself into a ground-floor bedroom where another sister lay dead, and was taken out by neighbours from there through a window.

    When police broke open the main door to the house a little before 4 am, they found Hasnain hanging, with a meat cleaver still clasped in his hand.

    Subia has reportedly told investigators Hasnain would often say when irritated, “Sab ko khatam kar doonga (I will kill everyone)”. However, by all accounts, Hasnain, who worked as a senior accountant, was a shy, almost docile man, and these threats were never taken seriously.

    Investigators have sought records from the Thane Municipal Corporation on property the Warekars owned in Kasarwadavli, where the family has lived for generations.

    Relatives and neighbours have reportedly told officials that nearly four years ago, Hasnain had tried something similar, with a local ‘baba’ giving him medication that he administered to family members, who then remained unconscious for nearly 15 hours. Suspecting something amiss when the family missed morning prayers, the neighbours had reportedly rushed them to hospital.

    While some strips of medication were found in a search of the Warekar house Sunday, an officer said Hasnain was under treatment of a dermatologist in a prominent Mumbai hospital.

Suspecting something amiss when the family missed morning prayers, the neighbours had reportedly rushed them to hospital.

    While some strips of medication were found in a search of the Warekar house Sunday, an officer said Hasnain was under treatment of a dermatologist in a prominent Mumbai hospital.

    Hasnain lived in the house with his parents, 28-year-old wife Jabeen, two daughters and an unmarried sister, Batul, 30. On Saturday night, he had invited his three married sisters over for dinner, ostensibly to celebrate the fifth birthday of his elder daughter. Relatives say he was unusually persistent that the sisters come, while telling his three brothers-in-law to visit only on Sunday.

    When one sister, a Navi Mumbai resident, said she couldn’t accept the invitation, he volunteered to pay the autorickshaw fare or come fetch her.

    While Mariya, 28, and Shabina, 35, came from Koparkhairane, Subia, 22, the one who survived, came from Bhiwandi with her five-month-old daughter Arsiya.

    The dinner menu was mainly home-cooked tandoori kebabs and was eaten around 1.30 am, after which everyone retired for the night. While Hasnain, his wife, two daughters and two of his sisters’ children slept in the first-floor bedroom, the others were in ground-floor rooms, including Hasnain’s parents Anwar, 60, and Asghari, 55.

    Between 2 am and 2.30 am, according to the police’s reconstruction, Hasnain killed his two daughters by slitting their throats with a knife used to slaughter goats. His three-month-old daughter, who was under a mosquito net, was also killed, as were his sisters’ children.

    “His wife ran from the first floor to the ground-floor kitchen, where he eventually slit her throat as well,” an officer said. “The fact that she must have shouted but no one awoke makes us suspect the food had some sedatives. Forensic reports will verify that.”

    The others were killed subsequently.

    Altamash Warekar passing by the room in which Subia hid was the first to rush for help. “Subia was banging a steel glass on an eartern pot. She was bleeding from the left side of her neck. She told me her brother had attacked her family,” Altamash said.

    Ayaz Warekar, 38, Subia’s uncle who lives nearby, said she had indicated the same to him before passing out.

    The local Kasarwadavli police station was informed even as Subia was rushed to the nearby Titan Hospital in an autorickshaw.

    “Prima facie evidence suggests the accused bolted all the doors of the house and murdered his family while they were asleep with a knife. The accused then hung himself,” Joint Commissioner of Police Ashuthosh Dumbare said.

    In her statement to police, Subia later said she had no idea what Hasnain’s motive could have been. “Our investigation is still underway,” said Dumbare.

    “The family appears to be well-known in the area and Hasnain’s father had a very good reputation. Initial inquiry suggests there were no troubles within the family,” said a senior Thane police officer.

    Here’s the list of the deceased:
