The alleged perpetrators, Tejas Mahadev Khatpe (19, residing near Ram Mandir, Ambegaon Budruk) and Imran Sheikh (residing in Santoshnagar, Katraj, Pune), have been charged under various sections, including IPC 307, 504, 506, the Maharashtra Police Act, the Arms Act, and the Criminal Law Amendment Act. Khatpe has already been apprehended by the authorities.

According to the police, the assailants and the complainant share a history, with a prior incident a month ago where the accused, under the influence of alcohol, visited a medical centre. Following an altercation, the complainant expelled them from the premises. Seemingly harbouring a grudge, Khatpe, in a fit of rage, attempted to fatally wound Pawar by thrusting a sharp knife into his head, concealed at his waist. Subsequently, the weapon was handed over to Imran Shaikh, who exacerbated the situation by brandishing the weapon menacingly in the air, accompanied by loud curses.

The police report emphasises that the accused and the complainant are acquainted with each other. Further investigations into the incident are being led by Sub-Inspector of Police Thorat, aiming to shed light on the motive and circumstances surrounding this troubling incident.
