A day after a labour contractor Ganesh Kokate was shot dead in Bhiwandi, the Thane police have registered an FIR against his business rival Ganesh Indulkar. According to the police, both Kokate and Indulkar have prior criminal records.

Indulkar has been on the run since September when he had allegedly tried to kill Kokate. As per police, this was the third attack on Kokate.

Late on Wednesday, Kokate was driving to his Bhiwandi residence when two bike-borne men fired rounds at him. Kokate was rushed to the Jupiter Hospital in Thane where he was declared dead. The police later registered an FIR against Indulkar and the shooters who are yet to be identified.

As per the statement given to the police by Kokate’s family, there was bad blood between the latter and Indulkar after Kokate acquired a labour contract for a project that Indulkar too was eyeing.
