Pimpri Chinchwad, 30th May 2023: Bhosari police station officials have successfully apprehended a rickshaw driver who was responsible for robbing passengers at knifepoint in the Bhosari area.

The accused has been identified as Dilip Shivram Gaikwad, who had managed to evade the police until now. The arrest was made possible through a diligent investigation carried out by the Bhosari police.

The initial complaint provided only a partial description of Dilip and his rickshaw, making it challenging for the police to track him down. However, a breakthrough came when it was reported that Dilip’s rickshaw had a sticker of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Armed with this crucial information, the police painstakingly checked approximately 300 to 400 rickshaws in the area until they finally located Dilip’s rickshaw.

During the arrest, the police confiscated five mobile phones and the rickshaw belonging to Dilip, a native of Latur. According to the authorities, Dilip had been targeting unsuspecting passengers in the Bhosari area. He would pick them up from PMT Chowk in his rickshaw and then deceive them by taking them to unfamiliar locations. Utilizing a knife, he would threaten the passengers with harm, forcing them to surrender their cash and mobile phones. After the robbery, Dilip would abandon the passengers and fled the spot.

Police have also arrested his accomplice Sandip Sahebrao Pawar, a native of Latur.

The investigation team included Senior Police Inspector Bhaskar Jadhav, Assistant Police Inspector Kalyan Ghadge, PSI Mukesh Mohare and police personnel Rakesh Boine, Sachin Garde, Navnath Pote, Dhondiram Kendra, Sagar Jadhav, Tushar Varade, Ashish Gopi, Pratibha Mule, Santosh Mahadik, Swami Narwade, Bhagyashree Jamdade and Subhash Patil.
