According to police, the incident took place at Manoj Koliwada Chinese corner located in Venus Chowk of Ulhasnagar. The eatery usually remains crowded, as people are allowed to drink alcohol there.
Victim Deepak Mhaske
Around 11.30 pm on Tuesday, Vicky Mhaske along with three of his friends went to the eatery to have their dinner. After having the food, Vicky first complained about the taste to the owner and later created an issue over the bill. Following this, a heated argument broke out between the two.
"Vicky immediately called up his brother Deepak Mhaske and asked him to reach the spot. In the meantime, one of the staff members flung hot oil on Deepak's face, injuring him badly. One of Deepak's friends, Vijay Pagare, also suffered burn injuries on his stomach.
