In 2006, Juhapura Farheen alias Shaheen Pathan allegedly killed her boyfriend after he declined her marriage proposal.  Farheen, a widow, fell in love with a youth named Devang Joshi from Hatkeshwar who was a kerosene seller. The two lived together in Juhapura area for five years.

But soon problems started between the couple. Farheen, who had two sons from her earlier marriage, had to abort her love child. When she asked Devang to marry her he rejected the proposal and said that he will marry in his community.

Furious over rejection, Farheen called Joshi to her house where her brother was already present with his six friends. She stabbed Joshi to death and then chopped his body into pieces. She put body party in a bag, and hired an auto with the intention of throwing it in the Sabarmati river.

Shaheen was caught when police, during a routine checking, flagged the auto down at a flower market near Sardar bridge and discovered the body pieces.
