In a recent incident that has once again brought criminal activities to the forefront, a 29-year-old gangster named Sandeep Pujari was shot in Kalwa East, a twin suburb of Thane, late on Monday night. The shooting occurred in the Shivaji Nagar area, indicating a resurgence of crime in the region.
According to the police, Pujari, who is the son of infamous female don Ramabai Pujari, was near his residence around 10.30 pm when he was attacked by an accused identified as Rahul Bhosale and four others. They fired two rounds at Pujari before fleeing in a vehicle. Pujari’s associates rushed him to Kalwa hospital, where he was treated for two bullet injuries.
Sources reveal that Bhosale had been keeping a close watch on Pujari since his release on bail, waiting for an opportunity to attack him. The incident has left local residents shocked, as they remember the dominance of Pujari’s mother, Ramabai, in the area two decades ago. Ramabai was a notorious gangster with 17 criminal cases, including two murder charges, against her. She was brutally murdered in 2010.
The daring attack on Pujari’s son has reminded old residents of the past and the fights that used to occur in the area. However, crime in the region had been under control for the past decade. Deputy Commissioner of Police, Ganesh Gawde, has confirmed that the five accused have been booked under an attempt to murder charge, and efforts to locate and apprehend them are already underway.
The incident has once again raised concerns about the safety and security of residents in Kalwa. The local police are determined to bring the culprits to justice and ensure the restoration of peace in the area. It serves as a stark reminder of the ongoing battle against criminal activities and the need for constant vigilance.
With the investigation ongoing, residents are hopeful that swift action will be taken to ensure the safety of the community. The incident has also sparked discussions about the underlying factors contributing to the resurgence of criminal activities in the region and the measures that can be taken to address them.
As the authorities continue their efforts to curb crime in Kalwa, the incident serves as a reminder of the challenges faced in maintaining law and order. It is crucial for the community to come together and support the police in their endeavors to create a safe and secure environment for all residents.
