An au­torick­shaw driver was killed by another rick­shaw driver over park­ing is­sues at Tit­wala on Satur­day. The ac­cused, Akash Tawde, 26, is still at large. The de­ceased Ramesh Kene, 28, knew Tawde well as both were res­i­dents of Tit­wala.

On Satur­day, Kene and Tawde parked their au­torick­shaws at Gaon­devi tem­ple stand at Tit­wala. Kene took his au­torick­shaw in front of Tawde’s to get pas­sen­gers first.

An ar­gu­ment broke out. Other au­torick­shaw drivers in­ter­vened and paci­fied them. But later, Tawde took his au­torick­shaw ahead of Kene’s. Tawde took out a sharp ob­ject and at­tacked Kene. A crowd had gath­ered but no one in­ter­vened. “No one stopped Tawde while he was at­tack­ing Kene. Kene started bleed­ing pro­fusely. Tawde ran away from the spot,” said Venkat And­hale, se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor from Tit­wala po­lice sta­tion.

Kene was taken to a hos­pi­tal but was de­clared dead on ar­rival.

And­hale said: “We are yet to ar­rest Tawde and seize the weapon. We have charged Tawde un­der sec­tion 302 of the IPC.”
