A constable was seriously injured in a hit-and-run incident on the Bandra-Worli Sea Link (BWSL) around 2 am on Saturday. According to police sources, the constable—Bankat Baban Navgire—and Sub-Inspector Pandurang Pokale were writing a panchnama in connection with a minor accident that had occurred at the toll plaza when a red Audi hit the former.

The entire incident was captured by CCTV cameras at the spot and a case has been registered at the Bandra police station where Navgire and Pokale are posted. The police said the accused is not responding to calls, but he is in Mumbai and will be traced.

According to police officers, the incident occurred after the Bandra police station received a call about an accident on the BWSL. When Pokale and Navgire rushed to the spot, they saw that two cars had collided with each other. A police officer said, “While PSI Pokale managed to save himself, the speeding vehicle sent Navgire flying in the air and he landed on his hand.”
