Gopinath Munde's men abuse, threaten woman
The senior BJP leader's driver and bodyguard allegedly threatened to "kill her in a way that her body wouldn't be identified"; the Pune resident claimed she knew Munde for five years, and was trying to meet him
A Pune resident’s attempts to get in touch with BJP politicianGopinath Munde got her some unexpected visitors in her hotel room. Anita Bhora (45), who is from Pune, had been tryingto get in touch with Munde. She claimed she knew the leader for the last five years, but that Munde had been ignoring he calls and messages. He had even asked her to stop callin him. But the lady still persisted, and came down to the city from Delhi to meet him.
On December 11, Bhora made a call once again to Munde. This time, she did get a response, but not one she was expecting. Munde’s bodyguard Shahu Gurav, and driver Sanjeev Valjee, landed at the hotel in Bandra (West) where she was staying. They came to her room and threatened her, saying they would “kill her in a way that her body wouldn’t be identified, if she didn’t stop harassing their boss.”
When the woman protested, the two men allegedly abused and pushed her. After they left the hotel, Bhora approached the Bandra police and filed a case of harassment and molestation against the duo.
“We have registered a case and arrested the two men for harassment. However, they were released on bail on December 12,” said an official from Bandra police station. Munde did not answer our phone calls and was unavailable for comment.
