In a swift response to a viral video showing a youth brandishing a sickle inside Appasaheb Garware College in Pune, the city police have arrested a 19-year-old student identified as Kunal Kangude. The incident, which occurred last week, led to the police taking immediate action to apprehend the accused and send a strong message to the community.
The video, which quickly spread across the internet, captured the youth and his associates causing panic by displaying weapons within the college premises. Following the circulation of the video, the police swiftly launched an investigation and located Kangude, who hails from Khilarewadi. He was subsequently arrested in connection with the case.
To emphasize the seriousness of the offense and deter others from engaging in similar criminal activities, the city police took the unusual step of parading Kangude in the same area where the incident occurred. By doing so, the authorities aimed to send a clear message to students and the wider public that such behavior will not be tolerated.
A case has been registered at Deccan Police Station under the relevant sections of the law, and the police are actively searching for additional suspects involved in the incident. The swift action taken by the police reflects their commitment to maintaining the safety and security of educational institutions and ensuring that students can pursue their studies without fear.
The Pune City Police’s response to this incident serves as a reminder that any acts of violence or threats within educational premises will be met with strong legal consequences. It is essential for students, faculty, and parents to cooperate with the authorities in identifying and reporting any suspicious activities to maintain a safe learning environment.
