A Pune police official said, Shinde ran a small business of making identity cards for schools and it seems like the family might have been facing financial crisis, as the business may have suffered due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The official added that the deceased had not responded to repeated phone calls from their family and friends on June 18, and hence they alerted the police. Further probe in the incident is underway.
