Malegaon (Maharashtra): Even as the Malegaon residents unfurled the tricolour Wednesday on the occasion of Republic Day amidst a grim atmosphere, Police arrested three more people for burning to death additional district collector Yashwant Sonawane.

 

Yashwant Sonawane was conducting a raid, which the police described was not planned, on the oil mafia for pilferage from kerosene tankers near here when he was attacked and burnt to death.

 

In all, seven accused have been remanded to police custody till Feb 8.

The three held were Vikas Shinde, Sitaram Bhosale and Deepak Borase. Four people - the prime accused Popat Shinde, his son Kunal, Raju Shirsat and Kachru Suvaralkar - were arrested Tuesday.

Popat Shinde, who also sustained 60-65 percent burn injuries, was earlier admitted in a Malegaon hospital but later shifted to Mumbai because of his deteriorating condition.

The accused were presented in a Malegaon court and remanded to police custody till Feb 8, a police official said.

Sonawane, 46, started off as a clerk in Mantralaya in 1988. He studied for the state civil services exams and managed to clear them in 1990, after which he was appointed deputy collector. Sonawane spent the bulk of his career in North Maharashtra and was promoted as additional collector of Malegaon in 2008. A Dalit from a small hamlet called Lakhmapur in Nashik district, Sonawane entered the bureaucracy with a drive to help his people.

He is survived by his wife and two children.

Mahrashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan had late Tuesday announced a compensation of Rs.25 lakh for Sonawane's family along with other benefits like a government job to one dependent family member, salary till his retirement date, free education for his two children till graduation and a residence from the government quota.

Meanwhile, residents of Malegaon and surrounding towns unfurled the tricolour Wednesday on the occasion of Republic Day amidst tight security and a grim atmosphere to pay tribute to Sonawane. The regular functions and programs that are normally part of Republic Day celebrations are called off due to the heinous incidence.

 

Condolence meetings are also planned by various people to pay tribute to Sonawane. While the state will pay homage to him in a condolence meeting to be held in Nashik January 27, people of Malegaon are organising similar meeting on January 28.
