"The crowd that had caught the chain-snatcher, identified as Nilesh Bhoir, wanted the police to hand him over to them. While trying to stop the mob from taking Bhoir captive, a police team under PSI Manikrao Kathure was attacked with iron roads by some 25 people in the 150-strong crowd. The police vehicle was also vandalised," an official said.
"The mob that attacked the police was led by Rishikesh Joshi and Suryaji Divekar and they have all been booked under various sections of the IPC for assaulting public servant on duty and rioting. No arrests have been made so far," he said.
