Wakad, 24th June 2024: In an attempt to instill fear in the Pimpri Chinchwad area, minors vandalized vehicles with a koyta early this morning. The incident occurred in Ekta Colony, near Wakad Police Station.

The trend of committing crimes to create terror seems to be gaining traction in Pune. Just a few days ago, six individuals fired shots at four locations to spread terror in Talegaon Dabhade.

The recent incident involves vandalism of vehicles within the jurisdiction of Wakad Police Station. Parked vehicles along the roadside in Ekta Colony were targeted, with one boy breaking vehicle windows with a koyta while another filmed the act. The perpetrators posted reels on social media to spread fear. Approximately five to six vehicles were vandalized in total.

Nivrutti Kolhatkar, Senior Police Inspector of Wakad Police Station, informed Punekar News, “This vandalism occurred at 2 AM today. Minors were involved who not only vandalized vehicles but also threatened those who tried to intervene. We have detained two minors, and there is a possibility of others being involved. The complainant has approached the Police Station, and a case will soon be registered against the minors.”
