As per information shared by Kondhwa Police, on the backdrop of an increasing number of crimes in Bopdev Ghat during night time, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Zone 5 R Raja had given instructions to find & catch such criminals.
Pursuant to the said instructions, Senior Police Inspector Kondhwa Police Santosh Sonwane & Police Inspector (Crime) Sandeep Bhosale had ordered to lay a trap and take action at Bopdev Ghat.

Meanwhile, three people on two two-wheelers were seen coming from Saswad towards Pune. One of the two-wheelers had no number plates on the front and rear sides. They were looking at the people walking on the ghat side and talking to each other, so their movements seemed suspicious. Hence, as the police approached them & tried to stop them, all 3 tried to run away. However, the police caught two people. They confiscated a two-wheeler vehicle along with a knife from the two. The third person, who was on another two-wheeler vehicle, took advantage of the darkness and fled.
When the police asked for the names and addresses of the two people they caught, they told their names as Nagesh Sanjay Chavan & Chetan Sitaram Khaire. When the caught accused were thoroughly investigated, it was found that the two-wheeler vehicle had no number plates & was stolen. The accused confessed that the two-wheeler vehicle was stolen from Bopdev Ghat a few days ago by threatening three youths with a knife.
