In a shocker, it has now emerged that Sachin Dixit, a private sector employee from Vadodara, who dumped his about 11-month-old son Shivansh at a “Gaushala” in Pethapur of Gandhinagar district, has also killed the child’s mother, who was also his live-in partner.

Dixit had dumped Shivansh at the “Gaushala” around 9 pm on October 8 and the police had cracked the case in less than 24 hours.

A team from Gandhingar and Vadodara police went to Kota to get Dixit, who had left for Rajasthan after abandoning the child.

He was brought to Gandhinagar early morning on Sunday and was interrogated in the presence of his wife Anuradha. She denied that the child was hers.

According to sources, when questioned further, Dixit admitted that the child was his and that of her live-in partner Hina. In a twist to the case, Dixit admitted that he strangulated Hina to death and packed the body in a bag.

Police took him to Vadodara where he stayed along with Hina. He guided the police to the kitchen where he had kept the bag. Dixit is believed to have done Hina to death on the same day when he dumped Shivansh at the “Gaushala”.

It has emerged that Hina worked in a showroom in Vadodara. The duo had apparently met there.

Dixit would stay with Hina during weekdays and then in the weekends come to Gandhinagar to stay with Anuradha and his parents.

It is said that there was an altercation between him and Hina when he informed her that he would be going with his parents to Uttar Pradesh, his native place, during the weekend. Hina had insisted that he stay with her but that wasn’t possible for him as he was married to Anuradha.

It appears that Anuradha was unaware about her husband’s extra-marital affair.

Shivansh has been kept in the “Shishu Gruh” and sources said that police is exploring legal options for the child.

Minister of State for Home Harsh Sanghavi had directed police to take up the case of the abandoned child on priority. The inquiry is being conducted under the guidance of top police officials Abhay Chudasama and Mayur Chavda.
