Ten supporters of Munde booked for beating chopper pilot
Beed: Ten BJP workers and supporters of MP Gopinath Munde were on Sunday booked for allegedly thrashing a pilot of a helicopter after he refused to fly the sitting MP from Beed city to another place, police said.
According to police, Munde, who is seeking a fresh term, had come to the Police Grounds in the city on Thursday by a helicopter from Mumbai.
The BJP leader was supposed to go to Vida village in Kaij tehsil to address a rally where the villagers had made a helipad for Munde`s helicopter to land near the rally spot. However, the helicopter`s pilot refused to fly from Beed to the rally spot in Vida village citing fuel shortage and other reasons.
A BJP youth leader, who was present at the spot, said Munde left the police grounds in a huff after the helicopter pilot refused to fly further and went to Vida village by a four-wheeler.
The supporters had told the pilot that he should have carried their `saheb` to the rally spot. To which the pilot then apparently replied that he (Munde) might be `saheb` for the supporters, not for him.
The supporters were angered by this and three of them allegedly beat the pilot up.
Police Inspector Dharamsing Chavan had registered a complaint against Rajendra Bangar, Swapnil Galdhar, Pravin Ghuge and other accused, who have been booked under various sections of the IPC.
