A bleeding Kiran Chavan, 35, the supervisor at the toll booth for the last two years who was attacked, was taken to Lilavati Hospital for treatment. The entire incident has been captured on the CCTV cameras installed there.
Talking to mid-day, spokesperson for MEP, the firm that runs toll plazas in the city, Uttra Ayyer said, "Around 5.14 pm, an Innova car, headed towards Worli, tried to pass without paying toll. So, Chavan got out of the booth and stood in front of the car. The driver continued driving, stopping just inches from Chavan, after which he got out of the vehicle, thrashed him and then attacked with a sharp weapon."
According to toll plaza officials, the accused was joined by another who kicked Chavan. They have been taken to the police station and the process of registering an FIR is on, said an official.
