'No punishment can compensate our loss'
As the city awaited the verdict, families of victims are left with only memories of their loved ones and hope for severe punishment for the manic driver.
19-year-old Akshay Pise was one such victim, who fell pray to Mane’s road rage at a tender age. His father, Pramod Pise said, “After everything that we have been through, I don’t have the will to follow the verdict.
I have expressed my desire to the cops that this person should get punished exactly the way my son died. They should cut his limbs and leave him on the streets so that he understands what my son and other victims had gone through.”
Akshay’s grandparents, who sat in front of the television anxiously awaiting the verdict, were unable to share their grief as they were still filled with nostalgia of a young Akshay.
