Wamane, who had escaped to his native place, was arrested on Tuesday night when he returned to Dombivli.
As the incident came to light, the MNS and Congress leaders wrote a letter to the Kalyan Court Bar Association requesting to refrain from representing the accused. They alleged that the incident has shocked Dombivli residents.
Shekhar Kulkarni, Dombivli resident, said: "Earlier, we would send our children in autorickshaws without any fear. But, the incident has shocked the city. We plan to request the autorickshaw union and RTO to cancel Wamane's driving licence and permit."
