A list of 88 people recently approved as freedom fighters eligible for pension and other benefits in Maharashtra is said to include three, including two women, who are deceased, an RTI query revealed here on Thursday.

 

They figure in the list of 88 freedom fighters till July 5, which was recently approved by Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis, including 52 from a single district Beed, approved on a single day, said RTI activist Anil Galgali.

 

"The same list of Beed has three names, including two women... Shambhaji Ambuji Khande, Janabai Laxman Yewle and Jalsubai Tukaram Bhosale... who have died long ago. Now their descendents are pursuing the claims on the pension windfall which runs into several lakhs of rupees," Galgali told IANS.Read more at;

Any guess about what is their age now considering the fact that they have participated at the age of 18 in Aug, 1947 ?

      My in-laws had a MIS with my wife. Suddenly my father-in-law expired. My mother-in-law wanted to take out some money as the per head limit is getting crossed. The PO is not allowing this stating that there are rules. She is a lone woman and is being made to run from pillar to post. She is afraid to complain for repercussion as she is ddependant on this money. What should we do to bring the PO to task ?

      As reported by Poornima Swaminathan in mid-day.com on 21 January 2011:
      Jail stint: 2.5 yrs, In hospital: 1.5 yrs)
       
      Jail stint: 2.5 yrs, In hospital: 1.5 yrs
       
      Matka queen Jaya Bhagat has spent 490 days out of her 30-month jail custody at JJ hospital, reveals RTI; sources say she even runs her racket from there
       
      The safest place to run a gambling racket in the city could well be from the sanitised environs of a hospital bed.
       
      It has come to the fore that Jaya Bhagat, arrested on charges of orchestrating the murder of ex-husband matka king Suresh Bhagat in 2008, has competently been running the matka business while admitted to JJ hospital's general ward over the last year.
       
       
      Jaya Bhagat stays in the general ward instead of the prisoners' ward at JJ Hospital.
       
      At a time when medical facilities in the prison are dismal and most prisoners do not have access to basic cough tablets and painkillers, Jaya's overstay at the hospital is raising many eyebrows.
       
      Well-placed sources said that instead of serving time in a prison, Jaya, under the guise of being treated, is "being pampered and is enjoying a good time and has also been running the matka business from the hospital ward".
       
      Sources said she has been running the matka business using the cell phones of relatives and visitors who come to see her.
       
      The details of her stay were revealed through an RTI enquiry.
       
      The documents (in MiD DAY's possession) state that Jaya's last stint at JJ hospital was a year long, since January 21, 2010, until January 8, 2011, the date the reply was issued.
       
      Moreover, ever since her jail custody since August 2008, she has been visiting the hospital almost every month (see box), spending an aggregate of 490 days in the hospital's care until date.
       
      Jaya's illnesses
       
      According to hospital authorities, Jaya is being treated for hypothyroidism, infection in the urinary bladder, psychotic depression, uterine fibroid, and has been admitted to the neurology ward of the hospital.
       
      Rulebook says
       
      As per the rule, undertrials are supposed to be admitted in the prison ward. But jail authorities say that even after they intervened, Jaya has still not been shifted. "Jaya's continual hospital stays did come to my notice.
       
      I wrote to the hospital authorities asking them to shift her to the prisoner ward, but to no avail," said Surinder Kumar, deputy inspector general, prisons.
       
      Earlier this month, when MiD DAY asked JJ hospital dean, Dr T P Lahane, about prisoners staying at hospitals for long stretches, he had said, "It's a difficult task to handle prisoners.
       
       
      Matka king Suresh Bhagat's murder was orchestrated by Jaya Bhagat in 2008
       
      They approach us with various special requests and unnecessarily pressurise the doctors and hospital administration.
       
      But if the patient is really ill, irrespective of their prisoner status, we will treat the patient as a human being first."
       
      Matka murder
       
      Suresh Bhagat was allegedly murdered by his wife Jaya, son Hitesh and five others in June 2008.
       
      The seven accused were booked under the Maharashtra Control Of Organised Crime Act, after investigations revealed that they had hatched a conspiracy to eliminate Bhagat. The MCOCA charges were dropped later.
       
      According to the police, Jaya and Suresh were running two separate matka gambling operations in the city after they divorced.
       
      The murder conspiracy came to light after a dispute over earnings worth
      Rs 100 crore.
