Pune: Tension prevailed in a central area of
the city this evening as a group of Army jawans clashed with
police following an altercation over traffic violation.

According to the police, the trouble started when a jawan
attached to the College of Military Engineering (CME), riding
a motorbike, was stopped by a traffic constable at Sambhaji
Bridge for running into no-entry.

The jawan then returned with his friends and assaulted
the policemen at the nearby outpost, police said.

The jawans, who were in civil clothes, also broke
cameras of mediapersons who had rushed to the spot.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Sanjay Jadhav said the
CME jawans abused and assaulted police constables.

was being taken against the culprits.
