His murder had shocked & angered all Indians. Today he z forgotten. A busy bridge in Pune called #Mhatre Bridge joining Sarasbaug to Deccan area. Everyday, it is traversed by 1000s of ppl but few know or care dt d bridge is named after an unsung Indian hero.👇
Mhatre was brutally killed by Kashmiri terrorists at the age of 48 while he was serving as a diplomat in the Indian Embassy in Birmingham UK. He was abducted and killed in an attempt to negotiate release of terrorist Maqbool Bhat of the Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front.👇
d same #MaqboolBhat, in whose name separatist slogans were raised in JNU. His daughter was only 14 when he disappeared forever from her life. Her father's body was found 3 days later on a sidestreet in Birmingham. Erstwhile Indira Gandhi refused to negotiate wd d terrorists👇
& Maqbool Bhat was hanged to death days after Mhatre's body was found. A few months after dt Smt. Gandhi visited Mhatre's ageing parents in Mumbai & allegedly said to them that on a personal level, she was guilty of taking their son away from them, but her hands were tied. 👇
In an emotional story, Mhatre's daughter talked about how her father's murder changed her life forever. The Kashmiri terrorists haven't forgotten Maqbul Bhat, but we Indians have forgotten Ravindra Mhatre. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
