A group of unauthorized vegetable sellers assaulted the team with wooden sticks and iron rods, leading to chaos and disruption in the area. However, swift action by the Chandannagar police resulted in the arrest of five suspected accused involved in the attack.

The incident unfolded when Assistant Encroachment Inspector Kunal Munde (24, resident of Bopkhel) and his team, under the guidance of Encroachment Inspector Bhimaji Shinde, were conducting operations against illegal vendors occupying footpaths in Vadgaon Sheri Vimannagar, and Kharadi areas.
