The other suspected shooter is on the run.Based on a complaint lodged by Dnyanoba Mangde, one of the five eyewitnesses accompanying Taur at the time of incident, the police registered an FIR on Monday against five accused on charges of murder, rioting, unlawful assembly and relevant sections of the Indian Arms Act and Maharashtra Police Act, 1951.Mangde also told the cops that a day before the incident, Dongre and one of the suspects, identified as Tiger, had gone to Taurs house.

The officer said the probe has also revealed that Tiger, who hails from Nanded, has multiple cases registered against him there and is wanted in an attempted murder case in Ghansawangi registered last month.Due to various reasons, including a possible law and order situation, Taurs autopsy at the GMCH started late and it went on till 1.30am on Tuesday.
