THANE: A 28-year-old owner of a powerloom at Bhiwandi in the district was allegedly hacked to death by his five relatives over a dispute, police said today.

The incident took place last night and all the accused were arrested, a police officer said.

"The accused were relatives of the victim- Shaddab Bhai- and there was a long-standing dispute over the running of the powerloom unit," inspector of Bhoiwada police station, V D Bhise, said.

The accused stormed into the victim's powerloom unit around 7 pm yesterday, asked the employees to move out and forcibly shut the operations, he said.

"Thereafter, they asked the victim to come to the unit and when he arrived, they attacked him with sharp weapons, in which he died on the spot. After the crime, the accused fled from the scene," Bhise said.
