The juvenile was nabbed by police in the late hours on the same day.

Shinde who was in a critical condition and was unconscious since last week, passed away at the Lilavati Hospital this afternoon, police said.

The biker had indulged in a verbal argument with Shinde when he was asked to produce vehicle documents and the license. The biker then phoned his friend who arrived at the spot within minutes and joined him in the argument.

The biker then banged a wooden plank on Shinde's head, after which the duo fled the place, while Shinde was rushed to Lilavati hospital by his colleagues.
