Attack on official: Thane civic guards get training in self-defence
A few days after a senior woman official was left severely injured in an attack by a hawker, security guards of Thane Municipal Corporation were on Saturday given training in self-defence.
The daylong session was organised by a Mumbra-based martial arts institute and was attended, among others, by TMC chief security officer Machindra Thorve.
Assistant Municipal Commissioner Kalpita Pimple and her bodyguard were attacked by a knife-wielding hawker on August 30 in Kasarvadavli junction, resulting in three fingers of the woman official getting severed.
