Two Agni activists assaulted
Mumbai, Mar 1 (UNI) Two activists of a volunatary organisation were assaulted by a mob of 20-30 people in western Andheri suburb here today.
Police said the activists--James John and Ravi Nair--of Action for Good Governance and Networking in India (AGNI) were on their way to office. When they saw some slumdwellers were stealing water from the main pipeline, they asked them not to do such a thing.
Meanwhile, a local corporator Subhash Sawant's driver Ganesh Pujari along with his brother Mahesh arrived at the scene and there was an argument between them. Then, Ganesh called up Sawant to ask for his help, who it is believed to have suggested the former to attack the activists.

Nair was rushed to Cooper hospital for medical treatment, while John was relased after some medication, police said.
A case of assault has been registered against the attackers, police added.
