K M Nanavati vs State of Maharashtra

If you have been following Rustom trailer release date and other related news on Rustom movie, you will already be aware that this movie is based on real life incident K. M. Nanavati v. State of Maharashtra.

In brief, the incident was as follows.

  • Commander K. M. Nanavati was married to Sylvia and he lived in Mumbai with his family.
  • He often had to go away on assignments.
  • While he was away, his wife, Sylvia, fell in love Prem Bhagwandas Ahuja who was a family friend.
  • While Sylvia wanted to marry Prem after divorcing her husband, she doubted whether Prem intended to marry her.
  • One day when Nanavati returned home he found Sylvia in a troubled state.
  • On confronting her, she told him about her affair with Prem.
  • K M Nanavati dropped her and her children to the cinemas and went to the Naval base.
  • At the Naval Base, Nanavati collected his pistol by giving some excuse and completed his duties.
  • He went to Prem Ahuja’s office. He did not find him there.
  • Then he went to Prem’s residence and asked him whether he would marry Sylvia and accept their children.
  • When Prem said he would not marry Sylvia, K M Nanavati shot him with three shots.
  • Then, K M Nanavati went to confess his crime.
  • The case was a complicated one as there were technicalities involved on whether it was a heat of the moment crime or not; or whether it was a premeditated murder.
  • Moreover, it was a crime of passion but out of love; and by a patriot.
