Kin seeks recall of transfer of officer probing Pansare case

Govind-PansareMumbai: Medha Pansare, daughter-in-law of rationalist and CPI leader Govind Pansare who was shot dead last year, has sought cancellation of the transfer of the officer investigating the case stating that it would “adversely impact” the probe.

Medha met Inspector General of Kolhapur Range, Prakash Mutnyal, yesterday and requested him to cancel the transfer order of inspector Amrit Deshmukh, attached to Rajarampuri police station in Kolhapur.

According to Medha, the IG assured her that he would give a serious thought on her request. Pansare (82) and his wife Uma, were shot at by two unidentified persons on February 16 last year near their house in Kolhapur.

He died four days later at a hospital in Mumbai, while his wife survived the attack.
