The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES CITY - Pradeep Gupta

A 41-year-old lo­cal de­vel­oper paid with his life for ac­ci­den­tally top­pling a glass of al­co­hol at a restau­rant.

The in­ci­dent took place on Fri­day night when the vic­tim, Prem­c­hand Ga­jare, had gone to Satyam Bar and Restau­rant in Kalyan along with his friend Gau­rav Bhos­ale (25).

Bhos­ale has told the po­lice they were seated close to the five ac­cused on another ta­ble. While go­ing to the wash­room, Ga­jare ac­ci­den­tally brushed past a glass placed on their ta­ble, send­ing it crash­ing to the ground. This sparked a heated ex­change of words.

Af­ter the dis­pute, the ac­cused left the restau­rant. Un­known to Bhos­ale and Ga­jare, they were ly­ing in wait out­side. Talk­ing to TOI, Bhos­ale said, “Af- Kalyan: ter we came out, they started ar­gu­ing with Ga­jare again. One of them was car­ry­ing a knife to at­tack him and plunged it into his ab­domen.”

Ga­jare died on the spot as the huge knife pierced right through his body. Bhos­ale was as­saulted when he tried to stop them and has been ad­mit­ted to a pri­vate hos­pi­tal in Chem­bur.

Ga­jare was a res­i­dent of Laxmibaug in Kalyan (E). He is sur­vived by his wife, two kids, and par­ents. He worked as small-time de­vel­oper. Fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent, Kolse­wadi po­lice rushed to the spot and reg­is­tered a mur­der case against the five ac­cused. Nilka­nth Patil, se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor from Kolse­wadi po­lice sta­tion said, “Af­ter we iden­ti­fied the ac­cused, we laid a trap and ar­rested two of them, while a hunt is on for the other three.” The ac­cused are res­i­dents of Ul­has­na­gar, Am­bivli and Ad­har­wadi. They have been iden­ti­fied as Bhavesh Patil, Jayesh Patil, Ak­shay Tirod­kar and Vishal Zede, be­sides one uniden­ti­fied per­son. Of the five ac­cused, only two, Bhavesh and Ak­shay, were ar­rested by cops.
