MUMBAI: Officials of the crime branch unit 4 have arrested four people on Monday for assaulting a Parel-based 43-year-old doctor at the behest of a local builder.
According to police officials, six people assaulted Dr Naveen Gupta while he was on his way home from his dispensary.
The four accused have been identified as Raja Devendra, 47, Deepak Chourasia, 23, Sandeep Pillai, 27, and Rupesh Dolkar, 26.
Gupta sustained 24 stitches and was discharged on Monday.
An officer from the crime branch said, “Last week, six people accosted the doctor’s car near Parel and assaulted him with sickles and swords. He was injured and admitted to the hospital.”
“The four accused said a builder paid them to attack the doctor. Both were living in the same society and had fought due to parking, and other society issues. Recently, the builder met Devendra, said he was tired of fighting with the doctor daily, and asked him to do something about it.”
Devendra hatched the plan to attack Gupta.
“The group had been trying to attack Gupta for the past two months but were unsuccessful,” added an officer.
The accused have been booked under relevant sections of Indian Penal Code, Arms Act and the Bombay police Act.
They were handed over to the Kalachowkie police for further probes.

No one knows how, why and for what consideration.
