The Detection Branch personnel of Kalamna Police Station received a secret tip off that some muggers were waylaying passers-by on the area between Bharatwada to Pawangaon in Kalamana area and looting them.
The In-Charge of Kalamna Police Station Police Inspector S M Bandiwar constituted a squad led by Assistant Police Inspector D V Aware. The members of this squad after getting an affirmation that the muggers are in place, they passed that way on a private vehicle. As usual, when the cops neared the muggers, the muggers appeared from the bushes and stopped the vehicle in a bid to loot them. When they saw that the ones they had planned to loot were cops, they tried to escape. However, the agility of the cops ensured that 2 accused who were mugging and looting the innocent passers-by were apprehended.
