Nagpur: Bhaiyyalal Bhotmange, the lone survivor of the 2006 massacre in which four members of his family were brutally killed by a mob in the Khairlanji village of Maharashtra, died of heart attack.

The case is in the Supreme Court and he was waiting for the justice.

Bhotmange, who fought in Sessions Court, Bombay High Court and Supreme Court for justice for ten-long-year, finally passed away while waiting for the justice in Khairlanji massacre case.

Bhotmange's wife Surekha, daughter Priyanka and two sons -- Sudhir and Roshan -- were brutally killed by a mob in the Khairlanji village of Maharashtra.

The mob was angered over a testimony given by Surekha and Priyanka against some villagers, which led to their arrest in a case connected to an assault on a Dalit family from the neighbouring village and Bhotmange was an eyewitness to the massacre.

Thirty-eight people were arrested for killing of the Bhotmange family members.

A fast-track court convicted eight of them for the crime in 2008. Six were awarded death penalty. Nagpur bench of the High Court in 2010 commuted the death penalty.
