Pune police are on the lookout for eight suspects who shot and hacked to death a person with criminal history at a Pune restaurant on Saturday night. Police have collected CCTV footage from the premises and probing.

According to police, the deceased was identified as Avinash Dhanve, 31, and has multiple criminal cases against him. The incident, which took place on Saturday night in the Indapur area, seems to be the fallout of a previous enmity, police said.

Pune Rural Police SP Pankaj Deshmukh said, “A history-sheeter named Avinash Dhanve (31) was shot dead and attacked with sharp weapons in Indapur of Pune district yesterday night. Prima facie appears to be a case involving previous enmity between two rival groups. We have identified eight people who were seen on the CCTV. A team has been formed to nab the accused. The probe is underway,” ANI reported.
