Power supply to Wanowrie, Divya Nagar, AFMC Quarters, Wanowrie Bazaar and Salunke Vihar was cut off from 1 am to 10 am on Tuesday after a mentally-disturbed man climbed up a tree on the premises of the Wanowrie Bazaar Police Chowky. It took more than eight hours for city fire brigade officials to persuade the man to climb down. Power supply was restored to the area by 11 am.
The man who climbed up the tree was identified as 33-year-old Chandraprakash Kol. Senior Police Inspector Bajirao Mohite of Wanowrie Police Station said that Kol and his brother had come to Pune Railway Station late on Monday night. Both stayed at the railway station, but Kol left the station.
“He was roaming the streets in undergarments. Army men, who were patrolling the area, spotted him on the road and chased him. This prompted Kol to run, enter the chowky premises and immediately climb up the tree,” he added.
After he was rescued, he was taken to safety inside the Wanowrie Police Chowky. His brother came there looking for him and told officials he was mentally unstable
Ten firemen from Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) and Pune Cantonment Board (PCB) rushed to the spot with a fire engine. Fireman Rajaram Kedari was instrumental in persuading Kol to climb down.
The emergency call was received at 1.55 am and a team reached the spot at 2 am. firemen climbed the tree in the dark and persuaded Kol to climb down, but he climbed higher. At dawn, Kol told firemen he had not eaten for a few days.
He asked for a bidi. Firemen gave him two cigarettes to smoke, after which he agreed to get into the hydraulic bucket. During the descent, Kol leapt out of the bucket from a height of 15 feet, but landed safely.
► It was a sleepless night. We called the authorities who told us that power had been shut in the area due to an emergency

A mentally-disturbed man climbed 35-feet up a Jamun tree on the Wanowrie police chowky premises at 1 am and stayed there until 10.15 am as onlookers gathered
The fire brigade tried to get him down, but the man kept climbing higher. High voltage wires were too close, so MSEDCL shut power to Wanowrie, Divya Nagar and AFMC
It was at dawn that the man, identified as Kol, spoke. He said he was hungry and asked for bidis. Firemen gave him two cigarettes that he smoked and agreed to come down
Kol was lowered in a hydraulic bucket at 10.15, but suddenly jumped out of it while he was still about 15 ft above the ground
This is a wrong opinion because Talent and good Voice does not depends or comes from a particular religion or country...
Talent is one that is gods gift.
and Atif have one of most nice voice in Singing...
we cannot oppose anyone in base of religion or by a country from which he comes...
A voting can be done...
I gaurantee more than 70% teens and peoples will dis agree with above protest done by VH P.

The writer seems do not have even basic knowledge of even which organization started first that are mentioned in this articles. This itself shows whether we can believe this article. I request the author to correct his basics first.
What is the need to organize events of Pakistani singer when relations are not good. It is ideal that sports culture etc. is not politicized and both get promoted everywhere, but you cannot clap with one hand, when other country is hell bent to promote terrorism, circulate fake currency notes, and destroy India then we should not be fool.
the criminals are walking the street and hurting the innocents. The law is very weak, non responsive. Punish the criminals, hang few and send a mesg to the rest. Murderers, rapists, kidnappers and corrupt political goons have taken over the country. No hope what so ever. Pray the girl gets well soon.
I second the opinion expressed by the other comment. If you would have printed photograph of the Mr. Salim (Auto Driver) It would be his medal for honesty and lot of encouraging for others in the same profession.
New Ranip ward is likely to receive Rs 4.96 crore for resurfacing and installing drainage pipelines.Till today nothing is been done. Where is the money gone. Driving on the roads is like taking a roller costar ride. What corporaters are doing i dont know.I can only able to see there faces at the time of election only.
I really appreciate the honest gesture shown by the auto rickshaw driver Mr. Salim Usman Mohammed who came all the way from Kubernagar to Thaltej to return the costlier mobile phone.
In this regard to encourage such more events you should have published the PHOTOGRAPH of Mr. Salim Usman Mohammed other than of MBBS Student. I feel it would be a life time achievement award for him and that would have made him feel more proud as if he had achieved a “Honesty Reward” from Ahmedabad Mirror.

media should cross check and verify facts whether maya kodnani is suffering from any sickness or just playing drama to enjoy life in hospital so that she can meet her family members , all criminals are enjoying their life in hospitals now a days....
Its sad to see something like this happening to someone.
But I would like to say that its very easy to blame the authorities for anything and everything. Yes, she fell because of the pothole which the authorities should've repaired. But did she get the stitches because of that? Not at all. Why wasn't Ms. Prachi wearing a helmet? Had she been wearing one she would've gone away with a few bruises.
When citizens themselves are not bothered about their own life and safety the authorities have no role in that. A good helmet costs around Rs. 1,000.00. Is it worth spending that amount, it sure as hell is.
My opinion is that we should stop blaming the authorities about everything and take responsibilities for our own mis-conduct.
My mother who just arrrived in India has been subjected to very rude behaviour. From customs. Demanding money. She ended up paying .these sort of behaviour. Is criminal. The government. Should do something a out it.
The sports sir certainly has some mental problem, before doing anything, pl get him going to a doctor. They have problems with their family, for which they cannot do anything, so they come to college and try to remove all their remorse on us the student???? Were does their so called Seniority go away??????
