Pune: Allegations of stealing a farm pig proved costly for a 27-year-old Sinhagad Road resident who was beaten up by a group of four persons, including a pig farm owner, leading to his death.
The deceased Ashok Mane’s mother Laxmibai Mane lodged a complaint with Dattawadi police station in this regard claiming that the pig farm owner, Uttam Jadhav and three of his friends forced her son into a white vehicle on Sunday evening.
“We presume that the two might have had a past rivalry. On the said evening, the deceased was forced into a car and was beaten up claimed the family members who said it was because Jadhav suspected that Mane had stolen one of his pigs. Mane was later thrown out on the road and his family members who found him brought him home and later took him to Sassoon General Hospital for treatment where he succumbed,” said a police official.
