Copy of FIR obtained by OpIndia

As per the FIR copy obtained by OpIndia, the victim was stopped and assaulted by the accused persons in the Gangadha area of Pune when he was on his way home from a relative’s place. The accused persons crashed their autorickshaw vehicles onto the bike on which the victim was traveling and began threatening him.

The accused person identified as Afridi, as per the FIR threatened the victim saying that the brother of the victim had filed a false complaint against him. Team OpIndia individually tried to know the cause of the incident, but neither the victim nor the police could be contacted in this case.

Afridi then hurled caste-based abuses at the victim and attacked with a sword he had carried in his vehicle. The victim tried to escape from the spot to save himself but the accused persons began following him. Later the accused person again launched an attack on his head with a sword but the victim moved aside and suffered a minor injury.

Meanwhile, the other accused threw glass bottles at the victim. The victim somehow managed to escape from the spot and reach to his friend’s home in the area. The duo then went to the Bibwewadi Police Station and filed a police complaint.

The victim is severely injured and is undergoing treatment at Sasoon Hospital in Pune. The victim person is a resident of Lohiya Nagar.
