Thane Police foil attack on renowned builder

Thane, Oct 7 (UNI) The city Crime Branch on Saturday claimed to have arrested two sharp shooters of the infamous Ravi Poojari gang who had come to allegedly open fire on a renowned builder from the

Acting on a tip-off that the men of the Ravi Poojari gang were to come at the office of the builder to open fire at him for not complying to the demand, a team of the Anti-Extortion Cell last evening kept a vigil and on spotting two men moving in a suspicious manner near a garden leading to another housing complex apprehended
them and nabbed them at around 1800 hrs.
Police recovered two pistols and four live cartridges from them.
An interrogation of the duo revealed that they were working for Ravi Poojari and had come to open fire at the office of the builder at Patli Pada, who had not complied with the demand of Rs 10 crore.

The arrested accused have been identified as Niteen Gopal Rai (42) of Malad in Mumbai and Dinesh Narayan Rai (51) from Ghatkopar.
Police further said that Dinesh previously used to work for the Fazloor Rehaman gang, who had allegedly threatened a saree dealer from Surat of Parag Sarees Shiv Narayan Agarwal and demanded a
ransom.
