According to police, the complainant Vilas Gokhale (62), a resident of Khare Town, parked his Activa (MH 31 CJ 9337) at the empty complex of N Kumar near Parate Sabhgruha and went to attend the Nature’s call. At the same time, an unidentified criminal approached Gokhale and relieved him of Rs 25,000 cash at knifepoint. On the complaint of Vilas, Pratap Nagar police have booked the robber under Section 392 of the IPC.
In another case, Sonegaon police arrested a teenager on the charges of looting a pedestrian. According to police, Sanjulal Betekar (23), a resident of Kala Pandhari, Chikhaldara, Amravati was walking near Sonegaon Lake when a youth Ajay alias Chintu Babulal Selokar (19) and his accomplices stopped their bike near Sanjulal and asked him about the time.
