"Yes, this is true that we have not been able to nab the shooters, but we are very much hopeful that we will reach to them very soon," said Vilas Chavan, senior police inspector of Aarey Colony police, which is investigating the case.

He further said that they have got specific information about shooters-- Suresh Gaikwad, Sandip Khairnar and Ramesh Kamble and have circulated their pictures to the police team members.

However, police had arrested three alleged plotters of this case over a week ago.

Three persons identified as Sumit Talekar (22), Jugal Dodiya (26) and Yogesh Kokane (31) were arrested on 24 May for their alleged involvement in the firing incident on 22 May.

Raju Shinde, an office-bearer of Shiv Sena's film wing 'Chitrapat Sena' was shot at and he was later admitted to Nanavati hospital in suburban Mumbai.

The incident had taken place very close to where mega-star Amitabh Bachchan was shooting.
