According to the police, the Shedge duo ran a security agency firm. It was revealed that they had got some security works in Shewalwadi area by bypassing their competitor and complainant Jaywant Khalate.

Hence, Khalate approached them and an argument ensued resulting in him beating up Sudhir. In retaliation, Sudhir, along with his son, brought a gun from his house and fired two rounds towards Khalate, injuring the complainant’s leg.

Santosh Pandhare, senior inspector, Hadapsar Police Station, said, “We have arrested the Shedge duo.”’

The police have filed a case under Sections 307, 323, 34 of the IPC and other relevant sections of Arms Act and Maharashtra Police Act.
