A condolence letter issued by the state Congress over the death of Shankarrao Jagtap, former speaker of the state legislative assembly, erroneously mentioned the death of veteran actor AK Hangal as well.

In the letter sent to the media by the public relations department of the State Congress at 8 pm yesterday, Manikrao Thakre had expressed his condolence over the death of Jagtap and Hangal both. The department sent a letter at 9.30 pm expressing its apologies for the incorrect news about Hangal.
