Known to amuse colleagues and media persons with his new get-ups each time, Nagpur MLC from Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Prakash Gajbhiye this time showed up as martyred cop Hemant Karkare at Vidhan Bhavan in Mumbai.
Dressed in the uniform of a policeman today, Gajbhiye held a placard that mentioned, “That Hemant Karkare died due to Sadhvi Pragya’s curse is blind faith. I (Karkare) scarified my life for the country.”
Hemant Karkare was the chief of the Mumbai Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) who was killed in action during the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks. He reportedly received three shots in his chest.
Bhopal MP Sadhvi Pragya had claimed that her curse killed Karkare who had "falsely implicated" her in the Malegaon blast case.
Pragya had said, "Hemant Karkare falsely implicated me and treated me very badly. I told him your entire dynasty would be erased. He died of his karma.”
