In a horrifying incident, it has been reported that 24 year old Hitesh Mulchandani, a resident of Pune has been brutally murdered after being abducted by five men. Hitesh was murder due to a small tussle over urinating outside the Kunal Bar and Restaurant in Pimpri.

Hitesh Mulchandani was a friend of Lakhan Sukheja, cousin of Rohit Sukheja, who lodged a complaint into this case. As per recent reports, Hitesh Mulchandani had gone to the bar with a friend. As per an Indian Express report, one of the accused, Amin Khan, came to the bar at 2 am for buying alcohol. Thereafter, he went out and was urinating outside the bar. One Sahil Lalwani asked him not to urinate in public. Things escalated after Khan got angry and abused Lalwani along with his four accomplices. Later, Khan attacked one Kailas Patil by breaking a beer bottle on his head. Patil was left injured in the incident.
Things took a turn for the worst when the five accused got really violent and thrashed Hitesh. They forced him into an SUV and attacked him with sharp weapons later on. After lynching him to death, they threw him out on the Gandhi Nagar Road behind Pune’s Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation. A CCTV footage has been shared by Pune Mirror in which Amin Khan can be seen fighting with Hitesh.
