The Kandivli police have registered a case against unknown people for allegedly beating a 33-year-old man to death in the wee hours of Saturday.

According to the police, the deceased was thrashed by unidentified locals with bamboo sticks at Laljipada in Kandivli (West) after he was caught robbing tiles from a showroom.

The police said that at 5am on Saturday, a woman passing by the area saw the deceased, Aman Pandey, lying on the road in an injured condition. She took Pandey to a hospital. The police said that after treatment, Pandey was discharged with bandages.

After spending Sunday at home, Pandey began complaining of pain. His brother, Alek Pandey, rushed him to a local hospital where they advised him to take Pandey to Siddharth Hospital. A few hours after Pandey was admitted to the hospital, he succumbed to his injuries.

“Pandey has many cases of robbery registered against him. We have registered a case of murder and are on a look out for the people who beat him up,” said a police officer from Kandivli police station.

The police are now looking for CCTV cameras near the spot where he was assaulted, which could have captured the incident.

In a similar incident two weeks ago, a 31-year-old man suspected of being a thief was lynched to death by a gang of seven to eight men, who tied him up to a tree and assaulted him with bamboo sticks in Madh area of Malad (West) in the early hours. The Malwani police so far has arrested four men and are on the lookout for the rest.
