In a significant crackdown, Chinchwad Police have apprehended three individuals linked to four criminal incidents, seizing items including a pistol, live cartridges, mobile phones, wristwatches, clothing, and perfume, with an estimated value of Rs 1.5 lakh.

Acting on directives from Vinay Kumar Choubey, Commissioner of Police, Pimpri Chinchwad, the police have intensified efforts to curb illegal activities, particularly the use of illicit firearms within the jurisdiction of the Pimpri Chinchwad Police Commissionerate.

Following orders issued on March 9, 2024, by Commissioner Choubey, a team comprising Sub Inspector R. J. Vharkate, Police Sub-Inspector Ajit Dudhe, and several officers conducted patrols across Chinchwad to apprehend wanted suspects, fugitives, and individuals involved in vehicle theft and house burglary.

During a routine patrol around 2:00 pm near the Nagsennagar slum railway track, acting on information provided by a confidential informant, police constable Pankaj Bhadane received intelligence leading to the apprehension of a suspect.

Under the supervision of Senior Police Inspector Jitendra Koli, the team, including Police Sub Inspector R. J. Vharkate, strategically positioned themselves near the railway track. At approximately 5:15 pm, they observed a suspicious individual beneath the bridge, who attempted to flee upon noticing the police presence but was swiftly apprehended.

The suspect identified himself as Sunil Maruti Loni, 22 years old, residing in Bijlinagar, Chinchwad. Upon search, police recovered a pistol, cartridges, and cash amounting to Rs 47,000. Subsequent verification revealed Loni’s status as a fugitive.

Chinchwad Police registered a case against Loni under relevant sections of the Arms Act and the Maharashtra Police Act. Further interrogation revealed Loni’s involvement in house burglaries, leading to the detention of his accomplices, Prathamesh Mukund Modi and Saurabh Dattatraya Shinde.

Modi, aged 22, hailing from Talawade, and Shinde, aged 23, residing in Balwant Nagar, Chinchwad, were apprehended, and additional goods worth Rs 1.5 lakh were seized.

This successful operation was conducted under the guidance of Commissioner of Police Vinay Kumar Choubey, Additional Commissioner Vasant Pardeshi, Deputy Commissioner Swapna Gore, Divisional Commissioner Raju More, and a dedicated team of officers.
