Congress Corporator Bunty Shelke was booked on Wednesday by Kotwali Police for slapping a senior engineer of Orange City Water (OCW) in Mahal, Nagpur. Along with the engineer Bharat Gawande, Shelke also reportedly abused and manhandled other OCW staffers.
The incident took place when Shelke demanded a replacement of a power cable, which was allegedly damaged while laying of a water pipeline, which further led to stoppage of power supply to the Kothi Road locality. Even as Gawande tried to reason out with Shelke and tried to tell him that the power cable was not damaged, the coporator slapped Gawande.
It is also being reported that as Bunty Shelke turned violent, he allegedly also destroyed the mobile phone of site supervisor. Shelke was booked on a complaint by Bharat Gawande at the Kotwali Police Station in Mahal.
