An unidentified person driving an autorickshaw allegedly tried to run over a police officer at Bhairav Nagar in Dhanori on Tuesday evening. The officer was injured in the incident.
Ganesh Shirsat, a police officer attached to Vishrantwadi police station, has lodged the FIR in this case.
According to a press release issued Wednesday, Shirsat and his colleague, police constable Deepak Rajmane, were on patrolling duty when they received information about a person taking away an autorickshaw that was parked in Bhairav Nagar in Dhanori for the past two days.
