Two men were arrested on Monday night for the alleged murder of a youngster in a restaurant on the old Pune-Mumbai highway on Sunday. The deceased was identified as Nehal Pandurang Nanekar, 23, a resident of Bhoir Ali area of Chinchwad, according to the police.

The two arrested were identified as Vicky Anil Gholap (22) and Sanket Vasant Satankar (23).

“The Kamshet police arrested the two from Pune and handed them over to us. They went to a hotel, got into a fight and shot him. We are investigating the reason behind the fight,” said police inspector Ramdas Ingawale of Lonavla rural police station.

According to the police, Nanekar had sustained a gunshot in the middle of his forehead with a prohibited forearm in Hotel Rajwada in Kamshet around 9 pm on Sunday. He was declared dead at Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital in Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) area.
