Car mows down school kids in Baramati vehicle belongs to Shiv Sena leader allege locals

Two girls were mowed down by a vehicle belonging to Shiv Sena's Baramati unit Chief Pappu Mane on Baramati-Morgaon Road on Thursday, claimed TV reports. The police say initial questioning indicates that the politician's friend had borrowed his vehicle. Two girls, Sameeksha and Divya, aged 12 and 13 respectively, died on the spot after being mowed down by the speeding vehicle which reportedly belongs to Shiv Sena Baramati unit chief Pappu Mane.

According to CNN-News18, the incident took place at 7.40 am on Thursday when three girls were walking home. A group of angry locals set it on fire and resorted to a "rasta roko" (road block) to demand the driver's arrest, he said. They also staged a blockade on the road, and allowed traffic to ply only after senior police officers assured them that the culprits would be arrested.

As per reports, the vehicle belonged to Shiv Sena's Baramati chief Pappu Mane.

The police are registering a case and are now searching for Mane.

The arrested trio are identified as Akash Jagtap, Hrishikesh Chavadhar, and Prithviraj Chavan, all residents of Baramati. "We have arrested the three suspects".

According to eyewitnesses of the incident people sitting in the vehicle escaped the accident site leaving the auto. The local villagers managed to nab one of the occupants and handed him over to the police before beating him up. "I am not at liberty to reveal these details at this stage", said the police officer.

The law and order situation in the area is under control, the police added.
