Man calls up police posing as Fadnavis aide, arrested

Press Trust of India  |  Ahmednagar 

A 30-year-old resident called up police posing as an aide of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and got himself arrested so he could receive healthcare in prison, an official said today.

Amit Jagannath Kamble, a resident of Navi Peth in Pune, was arrested today for making calls to the Ahmednagar police and jail authorities posing as a personal assistant of Fadnavis, Superintendent of Police Ranjankumar Sharma said.

On November 29, Kamble called the police on phone and asked them to shift all the three convicts in the Kopardi rape and case to Pune's jail instead of taking them to prison, he said.

Sharma told PTI Kamble is suffering from a kidney ailment for the last four years and can't afford treatment due to his poor financial condition.

He commits petty crimes to get arrested and avail free treatment and receive healthcare inside the jail, the police officer said.

Kamble has several pending criminal cases against him in Deccan, Vishrambaug, Faraskhana and other police stations in Pune, police sources said.
