Inspector Bhausaheb Patil of Yawat police station said in a statement, “The incident took place on Friday night, on Pune Solapur highway. Near Yawat, Manjrekar’s car was hit by the complainant’s car. The incident was followed by a heated argument between them. The complainant Satpute has claimed that he was slapped and abused by Manjrekar. We have registered a non-cognizable offence.”

For non-cognizable offence, police need the court’s permission to initiate the probe or to make an arrest. In cognizable offence, police do not require the court’s permission before taking any action.

Mahesh Manjrekar told Indian Express, “I was on my way to Chaufula for a shoot, where a crew of around 200 people were waiting for me. Somewhere near Yawat, this driver hit my car from behind. Two colleagues, who were in my car, have suffered whiplash due to the impact. I now know damages to my car are around Rs 4 lakh. We then found out that he and those accompanying him were clearly drunk. I was in a hurry for the shoot and decided not to file a complaint, because people were waiting for me. Now I feel I should I have gone to the police station. After the incident, the driver did not even bother to get out of the car to apologise. The person has filed a complaint on Saturday and not on the same night, because he was drunk that time. I don’t know why it is being made into a big issue.”
