Two people have been arrested for assaulting police personnel at the Nizampura police station on Wednesday.
Four women, who abused and bit the hand of a woman sub-inspector and a woman constable outside the police station in Bhiwandi, are on the run.
Samir Fakruddin Shaikh, 26, and Hanif Abdul Shaih, 25, have been arrested.
Those on the run are Kaynat Shabbir Bore, 27, Shabana Abdul Shaikh, 50, Rihana Fakrudsin Shaikh, 50, and Shabina Salim Sayyed, 48.
The police said that one of the accused, a woman, had registered a non-cognisable (NC) offence on Tuesday against one of her family members for harassing her.
She along with the friends went to the police station on Wednesday and questioned the delay in arresting her family members.
“The six started arguing with a woman police constable. I told them that I would send a beat marshal to bring the people who have been booked to the police station. They started arguing with me. When I asked them to lower their voice, they stated abusing me,” said Vaishali Gilve, police sub-inspector from Nizampura police station.
When the senior police inspector came out of his cabin, they allegedly attempted to hit him.
“After assaulting the police personnel, three of them ran to the road and threated to kill themselves. They lay on the road which led to a traffic jam for almost half an hour,” said Gilve.
“They threw stationery and important documents kept at the officer’s desk at us,” she said.
“When we caught the two men, the four women beat me up and bit my hand. The women complained about headache and drowsiness and went to IGM hospital. When we reached there to arrest them, a doctor told us that they were treated and they left. They were not found at home,” added Gilve.
The men were produced in court and remanded in police custody till July 14.
