In a shocking incident, a policeman was attacked by a group of volunteers during Ganesha visarjan in Maharashtra’s Kalyan area .
The incident happened on Tuesday and has gone viral on various social media platforms.
Sub Inspector Nitin Dogade had an argument with a volunteer, who subsequently attacked the policeman and tried to drown him in the pond, where visarjan ceremony was taking place.
However, when Dogade freed himself from the clutches of the attacker and came out of the pond, he was assaulted by three more volunteers at the venue.
Police have filed a case against the volunteers.
Last month, a traffic police constable who was allegedly attacked with a wooden plank by a juvenile after he asked the latter for vehicle documents at a petrol pump last week, passed away at a hospital.
