  The Malegaonians joined slain ATS Chief Hemant Karkare' funeral in Mumbai

Malegaon: Barely ten days before the second anniversary of the September 2008 blast, the Malegaon Municipal Corporation (MMC) finally confirmed the naming of a city road after the slain ATS Chief, Hemant Karkare.

 

The road that adjoins Nehru Chowk and Bhikku Chowk - the place that was attacked by the terrorists on September 29 in 2008, in a simple ceremony September 16 is named as Shaheed Hemant Karkare Marg.

 

MMC Commissioner Jivan Sonawane unveiled the board commemorating the slain ATS Chief, Hemant Karkare who had exposed the hitherto hidden face of 'Saffron Terrorism' - as described recently by the Union Home Minister, P Chidambaram.

 

The ceremony reminded the victims the bitter memories of the September 2008 blast and the investigations into it carried by Hemant Karkare.

 

"Naming of this road after Shaheed Hemant Karkare shows that Hemant Karkare is still alive in the hearts of people of Malegaon. This is a small token from us to commemorate the slain officer", Javed Ansari who had sustained injuries in the blast said while speaking to ummid.com.

 

"However", he added, "The real homage to him will be only through carrying forward the investigations of the Malegaon blast from where he had left. Unfortunately this is not the case. Those named by Hemant Karkare are still at large, and the present ATS and the government do not show any interest in nabbing them."

 

Decision to name the road after slain ATS Chief Hemant Karkare was unanimously taken by the Malegaon Municipal Corporation (MMC) in its general body meeting held on December 18 in 2008.

 

The idea to rename the 500-meter road starting from Bhikhu Chowk, where the blast occurred, till Nehru Chowk as Shaheed Hemant Karkare Marg was first moved by then Mayor Haji Najmuddin Khajoorwala.

 

It is claimed that Shaheed Hemant Karkare Marg in Malegaon is the only memorial in the entire country built to commemorate the Slain ATS Chief, Hemant Karkare.
