A woman police constable was assaulted by an unidentified volunteer at the Lalabaugcha Raja Ganpati pandal in Parel Thursday afternoon.
Hira Pawar, part of the women and child protection cell at Byculla Police Station, was on crowd-control duty when she was jostled by a male volunteer at 3 pm. They got into an argument and the man allegedly began to assault her. The commotion alerted other cops but the attacker vanished in the crowd.
"Pawar is not seriously hurt and returned to duty in the evening. We are still to examine the CCTV footage and do not know identity of the attacker. However, a case has been registered for voluntarily causing hurt and using criminal force to deter a public servant from discharging duty under IPC sections 323 and 353," an officer said.
