Pune – Pune rural police arrested today Milind Ekbote, after Supreme Court denied him bail. Ekbote is one of the alleged chief masterminds of violence in Bhima-Koregaon. Ekbote was illusive for many days, challenging the police in courts. However, today apex court denied him bail, immediately after which Pune rural police arrested him.
The state government has taken a stand that Ekbote is not cooperating the police in investigation and hence his arrest is necessary. Now after Ekbote is arrested, next tough question for the government is when the police will arrest Sambhaji Bhide? To the surprise of people, even the opposition are silent on government’s alleged protection to Bhide.
