The accused, Suraj Shetty was reportedly inspired by Salman Khan's movie - Bodyguard and assembled explosive in order to take revenge on the girl's father.
Shetty prepared a helicopter bomb to fulfill his dream. Police arrested Shetty on Sunday, Nov 6.
Describing about their findings during the investigation, police officials have quoted as saying, "The accused Suraj Shetty was inspired by Bollywood blockbuster Bodyguard and planned to make a helicopter bomb."
"Shetty was having an affair with a girl from Kurla for the last five years, but her parents were opposed to the relationship. Shetty wanted to teach her father a lesson and so he contacted Dattaram Salvi (30) who was earlier a mechanic. With Salvi's help he decided to plant the bomb in the SUV of her father," added the police sources.
Police initially suspected Salvy as the main culprit but later investigation revealed the original story. Shetty and Salvi tried to make the helicopter bomb and was planning to kill the girl's father.
According to police sources, "Shetty made the bomb by removing gunpowder from various firecrackers. The duo then fixed a helicopter motor to the bomb and connected it to a remote. They then decided to test the bomb on the isolated patch in Kalina-Kurla road, but the bomb exploded on Salvi's wheelchair when Shetty pressed the remote by mistake."
