On Friday night, a few alleged robbers crashed their car into a few Kalyan police officials, and seriously injured them.

Accordingly, the police team made a plan and laid a trap for the accused.
A police official from the team said, "We were waiting for the car and as per our information, a Jeep came, and a police official, Amol Gore, asked them to stop. But, the driver went over him. We immediately took him to the hospital and started searching for the accused and their vehicle." Gore has been admitted to a private hospital, and is recovering from neck and leg injuries.
In another incident, a truck driver, who was stopped by a traffic police officer at the Uran Naka for driving rashly, hit the cop with his vehicle while he was busy taking pictures of the truck's licence plate. While the driver managed to flee the spot, his vehicle was found during nakabandi at a junction. The cop, Nitin Vitthal Kshirsagar, has suffered serious injuries to his legs and hands, and is currently undergoing treatment at MGM Hospital.
Kshirsagar said, "When I was busy taking pictures of the truck, he hit me with the truck and fled the spot." The other cops present at the spot immediately rushed him to the hospital. Traffic Deputy Commissioner of Police, Sunil Lokhande, said, "We have seized the truck, but the driver is yet to be identified."
