The incident took place on June 11 (Sunday) at 9 pm. The Swargate police have arrested the accused. They have apprehended four minor boys and arrested two people. Goods worth ₹2.25 lakh have been recovered from them. Preliminary investigation has proved that the crime was committed after taking a ‘supari.’

Their four minor accomplices have been apprehended. A country-made pistol, live cartridge, three sickles, four two-wheelers and three mobiles totaling ₹2.25 lakh have been seized.

The complainants were going home on two-wheelers on May 27 at 7 pm when five unidentified persons travelling on two-wheelers stopped them and threw chilli powder on their body and charged at them carrying sickles. The complainants ran away to save their lives. On June 11 (Sunday), when the complainants had reached near their homes, five people travelling on mopeds chased them and opened fire. Since complainants bent down, they dodged the bullets. An FIR had been registered at the Swargate police station.

The accused had worn a mask and tied a handkerchief on their face and worn caps. The CCTV recorded the attack carried out at night but they could not be identified. The police examined 100 to 120 CCTV footage. The police came to know that the accused were going to visit Ranjangaon.
