Senior officials of Satish Deshmukh, an Assistant Auditor working with Nanded district collectorate in Maharashtra, were in for a shock after they received a letter from the latter seeking permission to tie his horse on the premises of his office.
Deshmukh, who had citied spinal disorder as the reason to ride a horse to reach office over a bike, however withdrew his request after he was convinced that his idea wouldn’t help him get rid of his back problem.
Deshmukh, in his letter, had written, “I have decided to buy a horse to come to the office, as I cannot ride my bike due to a spinal problem. Kindly grant me the permission to tie the horse on the office premises.”
Pradeep Kulkarni, Resident Deputy Collector at Nanded, said, “We sought the opinion from the dean of the district medical college. We consulted an orthopaedic surgeon from the college. The report said that his demand was against the medical science and would not serve any purpose for which he wants to buy a horse. He was convinced with the report and sought permission to withdraw the request which was given to him.”
