JCO’s son arrested for beating up CA; 3 others at large

A scuffle broke out between Mhasalkar and Honale over who should take their vehicle aside to give way to the other

Khadki police on Monday arrested Nivrutti Tanaji Honale (21), son of junior commissioned officer Tanaji Honale, for allegedly manhandling and beating up chartered accountant Yogesh Krishna Mhasalkar and his wife over a road rage dispute. Three others — Nivrutti's father, a subedar with Army base workshop in Khadki, Yogendra Yadav and an unknown Army jawan — are absconding.

Police said complainant Mhasalkar and his wife were travelling in their car near the Army base workshop on Darga Vasahat Road on Sunday when Nivrutti and Yadav were coming on a two-wheeler from the opposite direction. A scuffle broke between between Mhasalkar and Honale over who should take their vehicle aside to give way to the other.

"Nivrutti and the unknown Army jawan pulled Mhasalkar out of his car and hit him with some object. When his wife intervened, they manhandled and beat her up too," stated a remand application filed by Khadki police. Mhasalkar also alleged that he lost his five tola gold chain in the scuffle.

Nivrutti was produced before a magistrate's court on Monday where the police demanded his seven-day custody stating that they wanted to arrest the other three suspects and seize the hard object that was used to hit Mhasalkar. The court, however, remanded Nivrutti in judicial custody.
