Pandharinath Amberkar was arrested for allegedly mowing down journalist Shashikant Warishe on February 6. Records show he had earlier attempted to run over an anti-refinery activist. Manoj Mayekar, son of the then sarpanch of Kumbhavade village, was injured after being hit by Amberkar’s SUV in April 2020. He was booked after a case was filed and was later granted bail. Amberkar is now in the custody of Rajapur police for his alleged role in the Warishe murder case.
