Palghar: A domestic dispute and the breaking of a glass at home prompted a resident of Boisar to make a distress call to a journalist in Vasai. The journalist further informed the police, who rushed to the spot and resolved the issue.
Pooja Chavhan, 20, from Avhad Nagar in Boisar, resides with her brothers and a younger sister. On May 26, at 12.15am, her older brother Ramesh, 24, under the influence of liquor, broke a glass at home. To avoid any untoward incident, a worried Pooja called a journalist, who tried to get in touch with Boisar police.
Journo calls Superintendent of Police
However, when all efforts failed, the journalist called Superintendent of Police Balasaheb Patil and reported this issue. The SP instructed his personnel to reach the spot from where the call was made through technical inputs.
After the police reached the residence of Chavhan family, they realised Ramesh was in inebriated condition and that their parents had gone to their home town for a few days. When the police tried to take Ramesh to the police station, his sisters stopped them from registering a complaint and asked to leave him with a warning.
The police requested Pooja Chavhan to come to the police station the next day to register a complaint. However, she did not turn up and requested the police not to take any action against her brother.
