An FIR has been registered under section 353 (assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty), 332 (voluntarily causing hurt to deter public servant from his duty) and other IPC sections for unlawful assembly. No arrests have been made so far.

The second incident took place at 11.50pm on the northbound stretch of JP road in Versova. As ACP Vinay Kulkarni was asking vehicles to move forward, drunk Amarendra Bhosle, 29, a resident of Yari Road, started to abuse the police saying he won’t move his vehicle. When Bhosle was put in the police van, his unknown aide allegedly pushed the ACP, pulled Bhosle out and tried to run. While they managed to nab Bhosle, his aide fled.

Meanwhile, two men were booked for beating up devotees and policemen during immersions in Dombivli, on Monday.
