Alert policemen with the help of equally alert citizens arrested three persons who possessed firearms and sharp weapons. With the arrests, police claimed to have foiled a murder bid.
Investigations revealed that the suspects had plans to eliminate an autorickshaw driver on the playground of S P College on Sunday.
The suspects have been identified as Kunal Rajendra Pardeshi (32) of Ghorpadi Peth, Nitesh Vinayak Sable (21) of Dhankwadi and Sohail Farookh Shaikh (18) of Khadakmal.
While going towards Phadke Haud chowk around 9 am with woman constable Sarika Sanap for Navratri bandobast duty, havaldar Sunil Dnyaneshwar Dhamale of Faraskhana police station saw suspicious movement of a youth.
Dhamale tried to catch the youth but he ran away from the spot towards the road behind S P College playground. Dhamale saw two more youths coming out from a bungalow and they too started running.
Dhamale and Sanap chased the trio on their two-wheeler and shouted for help from citizens. Three persons, identified as Vishal Vitthal Pawar, Manoj Vitthal Bansode and Raindra Madhukar Ainapure, also started chasing the suspects.
They nabbed the suspects around 9.30 am and recovered a revolver, sharp weapons and chilly powder from their possession. Soon senior inspector Vijaysinh Gakwad of Dattawadi police station and assistant inspector A B Fuke of Faraskhana rushed to the spot with their teams.
During interrogation, they revealed that they had plans to loot a dairy behind Neelayam theatre and kill an auto rickshaw driver Rajesh Yadav (41) of Ghorpadi. Police said the suspects had a quarrel with Yadav during Ganesh festival following a petty dispute.
