The Bandra police arrested two men for assaulting and stabbing a toll booth attendant at Bandra Worli Sea Link (BWSL) on Sunday.

The victim, who stopped their car and asked the accused to pay the toll, is battling for his life in the ICU at Lilavati hospital.

Around 5.15pm Rahul Rege, 22, a resident of Bandra east and Paleshwar Chavan, 25, were on their way to Worli from Bandra. They were travelling in an Innova car with Rege’s mother.

When Amol Chavan stopped them and asked to pay the toll, they tried to speed away following which an argument ensued between the three.

Paleshwar then pulled out a knife and stabbed Chavan in the stomach.

Others at the toll booth overpowered the two and handed them over to the police.

Both have been booked under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.
