PUNE POLICE have detained two minors, aged 15 and 16, on charges of brutally attacking a 40-year-old man with a sickle and a rock following an alleged fight with the latter’s son while playing cricket. The man’s friend was also injured in the attack.

According to information given by officials from Wanawadi police station, the two minors had a fight with Patanpallu’s son while playing cricket on the afternoon of November 11 in Kalepadal area of Hadapsar. The duo allegedly hit Patanpallu’s son with a bat on his back and vandalised his bike. The same evening, Patanpallu and Sakate went to the playground to ask the two boys about the fight when the latter attacked them.

Patanpallu and Sakate were rushed to a local hospital where they are currently undergoing treatment. Officials said Patanpallu’s injuries were very serious in nature. An FIR in the case was filed at Wanwadi police station on Friday.
