Mumbai: An assistant sub-inspector attached to the Kherwadi police, who had been knocked down last month by car thieves while he attempted to nab them, died in a hospital on Saturday.

       The victim, Dutta Sanobat, was admitted to a private hospital in critical condition.

      On August 31, the accused who had stolen an Indica from Dharavi were searching for a place to hide the vehicle. Around 3.30am, the car developed a snag in Bandra, when they spotted a tourist vehicle.

    The tourist vehicle’s driver, Kaushik Tiwari, had stopped by to answer nature’s call. In a bid to hijack the tourist vehicle, the accused threatened Tiwari with a chopper.

      Sanobat, who was part of a police patrol team that was passing by at that time, stepped out of his police vehicle and asked the thieves not to start the car. But the accused didn’t pay heed and rammed the vehicle into him.

     Sanobat was dragged along for 20 ft before being thrown off the vehicle.

     Tiwari alerted the police control room and the two constables on night patrol rushed Sanobat to a hospital.
