Career / Fashion And Style

KM Nanavati was the dedicated commander in the Indian Navy who used to stay away from the home due to official work for a long period. His wife fell in love with his friend Prem Bhagwandas Ahuja who was a prominent Sindhi Businessman. When he returned on 18 April 1959, he found Slyvia was not at home.

When he enquired, he discovered that he had affair with his friend Prem. He asked Sylvia whether she would like to marry prem. According to reports, she asked him to divorce her so that she could marry Prem but it was doubted as to whether Prem would marry her or not. That is why he took the matter into his hand.

On 27 April 1989, he went to the Naval base to pick up his service pistol. He went to Prem’s house and asked him to marry his wife Slyvia but he mocked him by saying he would marry every woman he had slept with. This made Kawas angry and he fired three bullets in the chest.

After killing him, he went to John Lobo who was the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), and surrendered himself. Prem’s sister, Mamie Ahuja filed a case against Kawas but he won the case by an 8:1 majority.

The session judge Ratilal Bhaichand Mehta considered him innocent and referred the case to the high court. High Court found him guilty and sentenced life imprisonment. Later Supreme Court changed the decision on 11 November 1961 after 3 years of life imprisonment.
