Re:Mumbai Attacks: dirty vote bank politics of India
I have no words to show my highest regards and respect for these great souls who made the highest sacrifice for the sake of this nation and its people.
They will always be cherished and remembered for their braveness, their grit and their dedication. Incidentally, the Pune ATS on November 26 reportedly received phone calls threatening to blow up the residence of Karkare "within a couple of days". Whenever he was asked about criticism levelled by BJP leaders especially, L K Advani's outbursts against the agency, Karkare would coolly say-"when allegations are made anyone (we) will feel hurt." He rejected charges of the Sadhvi being tortured during police custody, adding- "We are going by the copy book. We are producing the accused in court whenever orders for the same are issued by the court," This is what another super cop Vijay Salaskar, martyred in this incident had said in 2004 aboutArun Gawli Gawli may have become an MLA. But for me, he continues to remain a former Mumbai don and I have to keep tabs on his activities. If I get any information of his group's involvement in a crime or learn about any shady activity going on at Dagdi Chawl, I will not hesitate to raid his Byculla residence. If I have to arrest him, I will not refrain from doing so. He had also added ruefully that – "It was embarrassing that khaki-clad policemen would be deployed to protect Gawli" The third officer Ashok kamte was no less brave who is known to have shown the correct position to a Maharashtra MLA who had tried to get ahead of law. Today we have lost all these brave hearts.Our hearts and minds feel paralyzed in this hour of great crisis.
