Pune,31st January ‘2012 at around 9 am, two army jawans riding a motorcycle picked up a fight with traffic policemen when they stopped the army men from going into a no-entry zone for two-wheelers, at Tilak Chowk. The argument turned violent after police constables tried to issue a ‘challan’. Some civilians who tried to break up the fight were also beaten up. Police teams and Army men in six vehicles rushed at the spot to ease down the situation.
But later, about 40 Army personnel went to the police station and damaged it. A case has now being filed over the clash and Army assured strict action against jawans found guilty.
All in all , Pune seem to have become a city always in news, starting this year . Be it, the mentally unstable bus-driver who ransacked vehicles and ended up killing 9 people, and then three people being burnt alive, part of some gang-rivalry and now the cops and the army raging against each other. Who knows, soon MNS activists may ransack some offices or beat-up some auto-rickshaw drivers just to retain Pune in news !
