A DAY after a police officer was arrested for allegedly killing a 50-year-old man after an argument over parking,police are facing roadblocks in the probe owing to lack of eye witnesses. Although police were told a crowd had gathered at the time of the incident,only one person has recorded his statement in the case.
Sub-inspector Amit Uttekar was arrested Sunday for allegedly assaulting Fakhruddin Sheikh (50),causing his death.
Amits cousin Ashutosh Uttekar and friend Sameer Dabhade,who were allegedly involved in the brawl,were also arrested. Meanwhile,a complaint of attempt to murder was registered against Sheikh,his wife,son and some of his friends who allegedly attacked Uttekar first.
The brawl occurred over parking of cars outside Biryani Corner near Dombivali railway station. Only the owner of the food joint,who was in the shop when the fight broke out,has recorded a police statement.
No one has come forward to record statements yet. We are trying to find some eye witnesses, said Assistant Commissioner of Police Rajan Ghule.
