In a bizarre incident, the admin of a group on the popular messaging platform WhatsApp was assaulted at the behest of a member who was allegedly angry by his removal from the group.
According to officials, Ahmednagar-based Chaitanya Shivaji Bhor (18) was attacked by three persons with a sharp weapon. The incident occurred at a mess on May 17 night on the Ahmednagar-Manmad road.
Chaitanya, a student of the agriculture college at Ahmednagar, had created the group having college students as members.
Bhor recently removed one Sachin Gadakh from the group as the latter had left the college, police said. Gadakh was angry and decided to avenge the “insult”.
On May 17, Sachin’s friend Amol Gadakh and two others went to the eatery where Bhor had his meals and assaulted him. Amol attacked Bhor with a sharp weapon on his stomach, mouth and back.
Bhor, who sustained serious injuries in the attack, was taken a nearby hospital and was later shifted to Pune.
The assailants, who hail from Sonai village in Nevasa tehsil, fled from the spot.
After a complaint filed by Bhor, an offence under section 307 of IPC and Arms Act was registered against Sachin Gadakh, Amol Gadakh and two others, Vinod Chavan, Senior Police Inspector of MIDC police station in Ahmednagar, said.Back to latest news
