A 31-year-old man, Ravi Shyamrao Koshinkar, was arrested by Hudkeshwar Police after he allegedly assaulted and abused an on duty traffic cop on Monday evening.
The incident took place when Traffic Head Constable Shalikram Nilbaji Sambhare (53) (from Ajni Traffic Police branch), stationed at the traffic booth at Mhalgi Nagar, detained Koshinkar’s vehicle. After the detention, Koshinkar started arguing with the cop and told him about his clout in the area. When Sambhare remained unperturbed, Koshinkar lost his cool and started hurling abuses at the traffic cop. Thereafter, Koshinkar assaulted Sambhare on his right shoulder and threatened him of dire consequences.
On the basis of Sambhare’s complaint, Hudkeshwar Police arrested Koshinkar and have booked him under sections 353, 323, 294 and 506 of the IPC.
