Pune: A minor dispute over the volume of a loudspeaker during a Ganpati visarjan procession escalated into a serious fight in the Manjari area on the night of September 24th. The incident, which occurred between 8:40pm and 9:00pm, led to the physical assault of a man. The case has been registered at Hadapsar police station.
According to the police, Balasaheb Vasant Ghule, aged 50, filed the complaint at Hadapsar police station. The police have booked three individuals: Bibtya alias Swapnil Sanjay Kuchekar, Harshal Suresh Ghule, and Ketal Santosh Ghule.
