1 detained for killing man in Bhima Kore­gaon vi­o­lence

The Hitavada - - NATION -

ONE of the four sus­pects al­legedly in­volved in killing a 30-yearold man dur­ing the Jan­uary 1 Bhima-Kore­gaon caste vi­o­lence was on Wed­nes­day detained by Pune Po­lice from out­side the dis­trict, an official said.

One Rahul Phatan­gade was as­saulted and killed dur­ing the vi­o­lence by a mob armed with stones and sticks.

The de­tainee was pur­port­edly seen along with three other sus­pects in a video of the as­sault re­leased by the Ma­ha­rash­tra Crime In­ves­ti­ga­tion De­part­ment (CID) on June 8, the official said.

In the video, four peo­ple were pur­port­edly seen as­sault­ing Phatan­gade, a res­i­dent of Ka­nur Me­sai near Sanaswadi vil­lage in Pune dis­trict.

“We have detained one of the sus­pects who is seen in the video and we will be hand­ing him over to the CID as they are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case,” said Dayanand Dhome, se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor. Dhome, how­ever, re­fused to di­vulge de­tails like the iden­tity of the de­tainee and the ex­act lo­ca­tion from where he was picked up. FOR­MER Ma­ha­rash­tra Min­is­ter Ek­nath Khadse has lodged an FIR against ac­tivist Anjali Da­ma­nia for al­legedly ma­lign­ing his im­age by sub­mit­ting “false af­fi­davits” in a PIL filed against him in the Bom­bay High Court.

Khadse al­leged that Da­ma­nia had mis­guided the HC by fur­nish­ing “false proofs”.

“When I re­ceived the copy of the PIL filed against me, I was shocked to see that she had shown two cheques worth crores as hav­ing is­sued by me. My sig­na­ture had been forged and other doc­u­ments pro­duced in the court too had been forged”, the se­nior BJP leader said.

The for­mer Rev­enue Min­is­ter said he was try­ing to reg­is­ter an of­fice against Da­ma­nia since the time he re­ceived the copy of the PIL, but the po­lice did not file a case “un­der pres­sure”.

“Fi­nally I had to ap­proach the court seek­ing its in­ter­ven­tion. The court on Tues­day di­rected the po­lice to reg­is­ter an of­fence against her (Da­ma­nia),” Khadse said.
