Love angle to Bandra boy\'s death?

Mumbai Tuesday, Apr 30, 2013, Agency

Two days after a 20-year-old from Bandra died in a train accident, his family has raised suspicion that he was killed over a love triangle. The family has also accused the police of trying to hush up facts.

The body of Steven Quadros was found lying on the tracks between Vasai and Nalasopara stations around 7.20pm on Saturday when he had gone out with four friends. The resident of Chapel Road worked for a Dubai-based oil rig and was down on a vacation.

The police said Steven had gone partying with four friends – Tanvi Sharma, Reece Valladares, Shalini Fernandes and Shalini's ex-boyfriend Allwyn Kilondkar. Steven's friends, who claimed that all five were drunk, said Steven was hit by a train. His family, however, maintained that Steven never drank.

Police inspector PS Bhangare of Vasai (crime) division said that Steven's friends took him to a private hospital where he died at 4am on Sunday. The accident has also left Allwyn with injuries.

Steven's family, however, said that, of late, Steven had started getting close to Shalini and that her ex-boyfriend did not like their proximity.

"When the five of them went out, the two boys [Steven and Allwyn] probably got into a fight and Steven was possibly killed," said a family member.

Inspector Bhangare said they have registered a case of accidental death for now. "The report of a post-mortem examination has revealed that Steven, who was hit on the left side, died due to internal injuries," said Bhangare.

However, a second post-mortem examination is likely to be conducted at the family's request. The family, said a police official, has raised suspicion that it appeared to them that Steven could have been assaulted and not run over by a train.

A family friend, Darrel D'Mello, said that the police were trying to hush something up. "Neither have they conducted a panchnama, nor do they have all details of the case. Steven's friends are lying because they killed him and fled the spot. It was some labourer in the area who found Steven on the tracks and went to the police," said D'Mello.

Another family friend Rujuta D'Monte, who reiterated that Steven never consumed alcohol, said they found it difficult to believe that he was drunk that night. "We have asked for a second post-mortem examination also because the police did not check the alcohol content in his blood even though one of the friends, in a statement, said that they were drunk," said D'Monte.
