As per TOI reports, 18-year-old Ramavatar Banwarilal Jatav was beaten to death and his eyes were extorted out by two drunken youths on a bike in Pune on Saturday. Police said Jatav was a skilled labourer specialising in tile fitting from Madhya Pradesh. He had come to Pune to visit his cousins.
When Ramavatar was crossing the road at Dhankawadi, he brushed against the suspect’s bike which caused them and their vehicle some minor injuries. This is what angered the two, who beat him up because he had no money to pay as compensation to them.
Inspector A T Waghmale of Sahakarnagar police station which arrested the suspects said that the suspects asked Jatav to pay Rs 2000 for the damages. As he failed to give the money, it leads to a grievous crime scene.
The suspects identified as Sumit Sudhir Kale (21) and Akshay alias Bhima Bappu Divate (23) had planned to run away after the incident but police officials nabbed them within eight hours. The two suspects, both school dropouts, were arrested by the Sahakarnagar police.
