Heartbreaking news coming in from Karjat, #Ahmednagar, #Maharashtra where a 17-year-old girl was raped by Ajju Sheikh and Raju Sheikh, when she was alone at her home. The accused entered her home asking for water and then brutally assaulted her. Image

The accused have been booked under various sections of the IPC and POCSO, but they are still absconding. It is a matter of great concern that the police have not made any arrests yet.

अहमदनगरचे सुपुत्र शेतकरी-कामगार नेते बापूसाहेब भापकर यांच्या जीवनातील एक प्रसंग:
शेतकऱ्यांच्या जमिनी घेऊन १९११ साली पिंपळगाव माळवी येथे तलाव बांधण्यात आला. मात्र, १९२८ सालापर्यंत शेतक-यांना त्याचा मोबदला मिळाला नव्हता. शेतकऱ्यांनी बापूसाहेबांकडे गार्हाणे मांडले़.
बापूसाहेब तडक प्रांताधिका-यांकडे गेले आणि नुकसान भरपाई मिळवून दिली़ १०० रुपयांमागे ५ रुपये बापूसाहेबांनी घ्यावेत, असा आग्रह शेतकऱ्यांनी
'मरेपर्यंत समाजसेवा करणार’ असे स्टँप पेपरवर लिहून देणारे बापूसाहेब शेतकऱ्यांच्या एका पैशालाही शिवले नाहीत.
ते म्हणाले, ‘‘लोक पाणपोई सुरु करतात़ तहानलेल्यांची तहान दूर करतात. त्याचे पैसे घेतात का? मग मी कसा पैसा घेऊ? पैसाच मिळवायच्या ध्येयाने मी ग्रासलो असतो तर मी आता लखपती असतो!’’
