Incidents of crime are increasing day by day in Maharashtra. Pune is no exception. Attempts to spread terror in Pune city by miscreants are going on in full swing. Another such incident, that could scare any Pune resident, has come to light. Two men, allegedly from the infamous 'Koyta Gang', terrorised the people in Sinhagad Law College area in the Bharti Vidyapeeth Police Station jurisdiction in Pune with machetes in hand.

They also went to shops in the area and stabbed many people with their weapons. This led to chaos in the area. Anyone seen in the street was terrorised by these men showing a knife. Due to this, the commuters on the street were stunned. Finally, as soon as the police got the information, they rushed to the spot and reportedly beat up the hooligans. The police chased and caught one of them while he was running with a machete in his hand.

After this, the injured youth has been admitted to the hospital for treatment. He is undergoing treatment in a private hospital. Meanwhile, students and residents of Sinhagad College area recalled the very horrible situation last night. After the incident, citizens are complaining that Bharti Vidyapeeth Police are ignoring such incidents.

Ajit Pawar sheds light

Leader of opposition Ajit Pawar on Thursday referred to the terror caused by the 'Koyta Gang', especially in Pune, Baramati, Alandi and surrounding suburbs.

"Some gangsters in the name of "Koyta Gang" are trying to establish dominance in this area through the power of terror," Pawar said.

"Koyta gang has also created terror by entering the college premises, shops and hotels. They break the windows of four-wheelers, make sudden attacks on people on the streets, extort from industrial contractors, vegetable vendors, shops in the municipal premises," the former deputy CM said.

"I demand that a special police team should be formed and this Koyta gang, that has flourished in the state, should be dealt with immediately," he said.
