The group reportedly arrived at the scene on two-wheelers, according to unit 4 officials of the Pimpri-Chinchwad police crime branch.
“This is a fight between two families. Due to a long-standing fight, Pillay had gone to the 17-year-old’s house to threaten him of violent consequences if he continues to fight. A few hours later, the 17-year-old gathered up people and went to where Pillay lives,” said police inspector Ajay Bhosale of Sangvi police station.
