Pune: It has been a fortnight since the murder of renowned anti-superstition activist and rationalist Dr Narendra Dabholkar, but there still has been no breakthrough in the investigations.
Pune Police Commissioner Gulabrao Pol is candid enough to admit that they don't have any positive leads.
This, even after the crime branch teams have questioned over 900 anti-social elements and criminals across Maharashtra, conducted searches at over 90 places, probed the possible involvement of anti-Dabholkar right-wing groups like Sanatan Sanstha.
The police has even checked all motorcycles bearing the number 7756, as the attackers were seen zooming away after the murder on a black Splendor motorcycle with this number.
Surprisingly, the 150 hours of CCTV footage gathered from different sources from near the murder spot and other areas has also not been of much help.
With no leads, the pressure on the police is mounting every single day.
70-year-old Dr Dabholkar was on his morning walk when he was shot near the Omkareshwar Bridge in Pune by gunmen on a motorcycle on August 20. The police said four shots were fired at him at close range, two of which hit him in the back of his head.
