Sachin Sawant, 45, was Shiv Sena's local shakha pramukh. On April 22, around 7.30 pm, he had just locked the party office at Kranti Nagar, and was walking home, when the assailants shot at him. The first bullet missed Sawant, and he started running. He ran for about 200 metres, while the attackers gave chase and kept firing at him. The sixth bullet hit Sawant in the chest, and he collapsed near the Sai Baba temple. The locals informed Sawant's family, and his son Omkar and other relatives and friends rushed him to the nearest private hospital. The hospital referred him to Shatabdi Hospital, as his condition was critical. Doctors at Shatabdi declared him dead around 8.30 pm
