A video showing a builder in Vishrantwadi allegedly pointing a gun at a man has gone viral on social media. The builder had purchased land in Ranjangaon. However, due to a financial dispute, the builder reportedly threatened the man with a gun, leading to a complaint being filed at the Vishrantwadi Police Station. According to the police investigation, the object shown by the builder was found to be a lighter and not a pistol.

Detailed information reveals that Mangesh Shivaji Panchmukh (age 34, profession driver), a resident of Ranjangaon Ganpati in Shirur Taluka, filed a complaint on April 3, 2023, against Prabhakar Pandurang Bhosale, Deepak Rajkumar Panchmukh, Sachin Bhalchandra Panchmukh, and Kiran Ashok Panchmukh. In his complaint, Mangesh stated that Deepak, Sachin, and Kiran forcibly took him from Ranjangaon to Prabhakar Bhosale’s office in Vishrantwadi, where Prabhakar Bhosale threatened him with a pistol. The complaint also included a video of the incident on a pen drive provided to the police.

Upon investigating the complaint, the police found that Prabhakar Bhosale had purchased Mangesh Panchmukh’s land in Ranjangaon Ganpati. All related transactions were completed, and Mangesh had assisted Bhosale with other land deals. As a gesture of gratitude, Bhosale had agreed to give Mangesh six lakh rupees to build a house. However, Bhosale delayed the payment.

Initially, Bhosale gave Mangesh two lakh rupees, prompting Mangesh to start constructing his house. Facing difficulties due to the lack of remaining funds, Mangesh repeatedly contacted Bhosale. Despite knowing that the object in the video was a lighter and not a pistol, Mangesh filed the complaint to secure the remaining funds for his house.

On April 26, 2023, Mangesh Panchmukh provided a detailed statement to the police, clarifying that neither party had further complaints against each other. The police filed the complaint on April 27, 2023, and Prabhakar Bhosale handed over the lighter at the police station, which Mangesh identified.
