Mumbai police has arrested four persons for allegedly killing a man who objected to one of them urinating in public in Navi Mumbai.
35-year-old Sachin Patil was found severely injured on the road and was declared dead by doctors after being rushed to a nearby hospital, a Rabale MIDC police station official said.
“Our probe zeroed in on Akash Gaikwad (20) who had picked up a fight with Patil after the latter told him not to urinate in public,” the official said.
The incident took place in Sathe Nagar. Gaikwad and three of his friends later assaulted Patil and left him to die on the road.
All four were arrested while trying to flee from Sathe Nagar, he said.
The official said the accused have been charged with murder and remanded in police custody till January 5.
