A 56-year-old Assistant Sub-Inspector of Police placed at the Pant Nagar police station in Ghatkopar was allegedly hit by an autorickshaw on Wednesday afternoon.

ASI Sandeep Chandane placed at Pant Nagar police since xxx, on Wednesday afternoon was exiting the police station and proceeding to go the other side of the road - where the police station’s other building is placed. He was allegedly crossing the road when the accident took place.

“The road outside the police station is usually a busy one, it’s a narrow lane with residential buildings around. Vehicles usually don’t speed here given the traffic movement, hence we were surprised to witness the accident,” said an official.
