Corporator stops public servant from surveying huts, arrested

Samta Nagar Police have arrested Congress corporator from Kandivali East Yogesh Bhoir for allegedly misbehaving with a forest officer on Wednesday. Bhoir was presented before a court on Thursday and remanded in judicial custody. He was later released on bail.

Police said Bhoir, who represents ward 24, did not allow forest officer Dattatray Karande to conduct a survey in Kandivali East.

They said Karande was surveying the area for hutments following a Bombay High Court order when Bhoir misbehaved with the officer and his team and did not allow them to carry on.

Karande then approached police and lodged a complaint under IPC section 353 for preventing a public servant from discharging his duty.

"We arrested Bhoir and presented him before court on Friday," said Pravin Patil, DCP (Zone 12).
