Khetia Atrocity: Police acts
Shocking is to hear a professor beaten up by Caste Goondas in a premier institute that produces top ( 90-95%) results in 10th and 12th standard within Mumbai University.
Mr. Sitaram Mhaske is among the well-known and upright Professors. Having committed daily routine of his lectures, he was taking session of Second year B.A. students in Birla College. He was deliberating on Public Morality and Political-Criminal Nexus. He also elaborated on the corruption in the college admissions. (Like ministers, corporators who always use force and money). He quoted the case of corruption in Colleges during admission process like in Birla College and clarified the subject.
A daughter of a Congress Corporator Mr. Arjun Bhoir (or Bhoyar, (an Uppercaste) happens to be a student of the same class. At the time of lecture, she was absent. On hearing from a friend, she mis-took it as an issue and misinformed her politician father , more notoriously known as Dada.
In order to show his clout and punish the Professor, MR Bhoir went on to see Principal with supporters (other Local Goondas). In a meeting that lasted for 1&1/2 hrs., Prof prevailed upon the debate and got matter resolved , Principal being present there. While moving out of the cabin, Corporator hold professor’s hand and collar and warned him in a terribly abusive tone “Tu Jaticha Mahar, Tujhi Kay Layaki Ahe, Tula kay Shikawata Yete”(You are born Mahar, What is your Status?, You don’t know teaching). With no second chance, Bhoir started beating up the Professor , later his supporters joined. However thanks to Professor commune present there, for their intervention, Prof Maske was saved. People who witnessed the scene got terrified.
After the incidence, College launched complaint in nearby police station under POA Act 1989 (Atrocity Act). Two of his supporters got technically arrested and Arjun Bhoir remained absconding on Police records in the bargain. Though the College is supporting Professor, politicians will try to put down the case in the favour of a Castiest Goon Bhoir.
On 30/06/2010 All Teacher Association went demonstrate before Police headquarters, Thane with following demands:
1) Arrest of Arjun Bhoir at the earliest else hunger strike
2) Termination from the post of Corporator
3)Protection to teachers
The role of Congress High Command is in question now as the their Agent is getting protection just another murder of democracy.
Thru Atrocitynews, our local correspondent requests you all to kindly discuss the case at higher levels and with the leaders of civil society (virtually non- existent in India).
Let’s come together and protest at our own level to control this kind of heinous crime.
