Pune police arrested the doctors namely Dr Ajay Taware HOD forensic medicine department and Chief Medical Officer Dr Srihari Halnor along with another staff, Atul Ghatkamble.

When asked about the multiple media reports published that there was a call exchange between Dr. Ajay Taware and MLA Tingre after the incident in the early hours of May 20, the senior official of Pune police confirmed that as of now there is no connection established between MLA Tingre and Dr. Taware.

"We have also not found any call records till now between these two in the investigation", the police official told ANI on Tuesday.

The government has asked us to file the report as soon as possible. What we enquired about remains confidential. We won't be able to comment more on it".
