The police are probing into a brawl between two persons when their vehicles brushed each other in Powai on Wednesday night.

The accused, Shekar Puranik (36), stepped out of his car and pulled out a starting pistol, which is used to flag off races, and started firing in the direction of biker Mohammed Ansari (19).

“Both of them had a heated exchange. Puranik then pulled out a gun and fired, which locals believed to be real bullets. A passing patrol brought both of them to the police station,” said Bhajirao Bhosle, senior inspector of Powai police station.

Bhosle said the two settled their differences and didn’t lodge a complaint. “It was found that Puranik possessed a starting pistol for which he had a licence. It has been confiscated and will be returned after completion of the probe,” Bhosle added.
