A man received seriously injuries when he was attacked and thrown into a well by four persons with the intention of killing him over an old rivalry. The incident occurred on Tuesday. Police have booked all the four accused.
According to police, the victim Sachin Chandrakant Bhasme (39), a resident of Sadbhavna Nagar, Plot No. 36, had gone to Hanuman Mandir, Jaigurudev Nagar on Tuesday and was sitting there. At the same time, the accused Badal Waghmare (32), a resident of Jaigurudev Nagar and his three accomplices approached Sachin and started heckling him for indulging in abusive language and spreading canards against Badal in the locality and instigating residents. Even before Sachin could gauge the situation, the accused started attacking him with wooden sticks. In the attack, Sachin suffered serious injuries. However, the accused did not stop here and with a motive to kill him, they threw Sachin into a well in the area and later fled the spot. Nearby residents, after hearing Sachin’s cry for help, gathered at the well and took him out.
Ajni police, who were informed about the incident, reached the spot immediately. Sachin was admitted to Government Medical College and Hospital where he is battling for life. Cops have registered an offence under Section 307 and 34 of the IPC against Badal and his accomplices and launched a search to nab them. PSI Shejul is probing the matter further.
