Home Minister R R Patil visited Shubham Shirke’s parent’s home yesterday in Adarshnagar at Dighi and offered his condolences. Patil asked police officials to investigate why the Bhosari police did not take cognizance when the parents of murder victim Shubham had called to report that their son had been kidnapped.
Sudhir Nikam, Shubham’s maternal uncle, said, “Patil sir came at 2 pm and had a conversation with the family for almost 30 minutes. He called famous lawyer Ujjwal Nikam and asked him to take up Shubham’s case.”
He also instructed the Vishrantwadi police to investigate the case impartially and without any pressure.
As Shubham’s parents and his younger brother Sujay will no longer be staying at their Adarshnagar residence, Patil promised that Sujay’s admission would be taken care of when they shift.
