THANE: A 35-year-old in­mate of Thane cen­tral jail as­saulted a po­lice in­spec­tor when he was about to be taken to a ses­sions court in Mum­bai on Thurs­day.

Shiv­narayan Shetty was ar­rested last year for rob­bery.

Around 10.30am on Thurs­day, Shetty was brought out­side the jail and told to get in to a po­lice van. A Bhi­wandi po­lice of­fi­cer was about to hand­cuff him but he did not al­low him to. “He ar­gued with the po­lice of­fi­cer. When the po­lice of­fi­cer tried to hold his hands, Shetty pushed him away and abused him,” said M Dhar­mad­hikari, se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor from Tha­ne­na­gar po­lice sta­tion. He also as­saulted the other po­lice­men who tried to in­ter­vene.

Shetty was then taken to jail and a case has been lodged with the Tha­ne­na­gar po­lice sta­tion. He was charged un­der sec­tions of In­dian Pe­nal Code.
