Pankaj Kadam (33), a resident of Mumbai, was beaten up by four men travelling in an SUV in the early hours of Saturday. A medical representative by profession, Kadam was on his way to Mumbai when he boarded a white SUV car from Wakad, according to Ganesh Shinde, deputy commissioner of police, Zone-3.

Kadam was thrown out of the car by the men on Dehu road from where he walked for a few kilometers before he was rushed to the nearest hospital, according to  the police. The four men stole money, gold chain and a finger-ring from the man. The stolen items are estimated to be worth over ₹30,000, according to the police.

A similar case was registered on July 3 as well, according to the information provided by assistant police inspector Ganesh Dhamne of Hinjewadi police station. Vishal Gopichand Ahuja (34) of Pimple Saudagar was thrashed in a similar incident, said API Dhamne. He was rushed to Lokmanya hospital in Nigdi, he said.

“We have set up fixed points along the spots that we have identified that are prone to incidents involving private vehicles. We request the citizens to not hail private vehicles. Use state-run vehicles or call for taxis. A lot of people travel from Mumbai and Satara every day and the incidents can be avoided if  citizens do not hail private vehicles,” said DCP Ganesh Shinde.
