A MAN was killed when three carjackers rammed a car into his motorbike while fleeing from police. The three had allegedly robbed two cars in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad district last Friday.
One of the carjackers, identified as Yogesh Rajdev (30), succumbed to injuries while his brother Umesh Rajdev (26) and Devendra Shinde (32) were arrested. The bike rider has been identified as Chandrakant Bodse.
Police said that the trio left their house at Ramrai, Waluj on a motorbike around 10.45 pm. They reached Pimpalgaon phata on Aurangabad-Nashik highway and hijacked a car by threatening its owner Kevalsingh Sulane. They also took Sulane’s mobile phone and Rs 8,000 from him.
The accused then drove back to Pimpalgaon phata to find their next target. Around 12.30am when they were 7 km away from Pimpalgaon phata, they spotted an Innova on the Solapur-Dhule highway. They blocked the car and assaulted three men in it, including the owner Satish Gupta and took the vehicle. On their way back, police started chasing them.
Around 20 minutes later, in Daulatabad, Umesh lost control over the vehicle and rammed it into two other vehicles, including the motorbike driven by Chandrakant Bodse. Yogesh succumbed to head injuries from the crash on Saturday.
“We arrested two of the robbers. We have registered two FIRs against them for assault, robbery and dacoity among other IPC sections,” said Amol Dhakne, Sub-Inspector of Sillegaon station.
