Mumbai: The city police on Friday said the robbers who fired at a 44-year-old businessman at Kumbharwada, Grant Road on Thursday were carrying two firearms but used only one. “Perhaps, the other gunman got scared after looking at the mob chasing them and preferred to flee,” said a senior police officer.
Three unidentified robbers had snatched a bag containing Rs 40,000 from a Sindhudurgbased cushion trader Pundalik Sawant. Sanjay Mayekar, a navratri mandal volunteer, was injured after a bullet fired by one of the robbers hit him. “We have formed six teams to probe the case,” said additional commissioner of police Krishna Prakash. The police said they have CCTV footage of the culprits and sketches of the three robbers have been prepared. “The sketches will be given to informants and other police stations,” said Prakash. Mayekar is likely to be discharged from hospital on Saturday.
