Man held for peltingstones at PMPML bus
The Hinjenwadi police arrested a man after he unleashed a barrage of stones on a PMPML bus yesterday morning.
30-year-old Kamlesh Choudhary, who has been known to target buses, especially PMPML ones, is an auto rickshaw driver by profession. According to the police, the accused resorts to throwing stones when he gats angry.
“Choudhary is married, but is known for his eccentric behaviour,” said Inspector Satish Devre of Hinjewadi police station. Choudhary was standing at Dange chowk and suddenly started pelting stones at a running PMPML bus. He was heard demanding that a flyover be constructed in Dange chowk while hurling abuses and stones at the same time. He was nabbed by passers by and taken to the police station. Devre added that no one was injured in the stone pelting.
According to the police, Choudhary had also pelted stones at PMPML buses a few months ago while demanding that 26/11 terrorist Ajmal Kasab be executed. He was arrested by personnel of the same police station after that outburst.
“He is a keen reader and keeps various newspapers in his auto rickshaw. He gets carried away after reading disturbing articles in the newspapers and turns violent,” Devre said.
