Bullet misfired from pistol kills youth
A youth died after a bullet misfired from a pistol hitting his head in Khed taluka on Sunday. Police have identified the victim as Kishor Dilip Shinde (23), a resident of Khed. The victim's father Dilip Hanumant Shinde (46) registered an offence at Rajgurunagar police station against his nephew Rahul Sanjay Pawar (26) who was operating the pistol and friend Sudhir Vasudev Dudhane (26), both from Khed. Police said they had gone to Shiv Malhar Dhaba on Nimgaon Dawdi Road to have dinner. Around 10 pm, Pawar took out a pistol and showed it to Shinde and Dudhane. Pawar told police that he had removed the magazine of the pistol but was not aware that a bullet remained inside. When the trigger was pulled, the bullet took off and penetrated Shinde's head. He was rushed to a hospital but was declared brought dead. Police said that Pawar does not possess the pistol licence. The pistol seized from him is of superior quality and appears to be of foreign make, they said. Pawar reportedly told police that he found the pistol somewhere but police suspects he purchased it.
