मिरज : मिरज रेल्वे स्थानकात प्लॅटफॉर्मवर महादेव चव्हाण (वय ६०, रा. बेळगाव) या हॉटेलात आचारीकाम करणाऱ्या वृद्धाचा चाकूने भोसकून खून करण्यात आला. ही घटना सोमवारी सकाळी साडेअकराच्या दरम्यान घडली. दारूच्या नशेत असलेला मारेकरी सत्यनारायणदास रामदाससिंग भदौरिया (५६, रा. खलीलपूर, जि. भिंड, मध्य प्रदेश) याला घटनास्थळीच रेल्वे पोलिसांनी ताब्यात घेऊन अटक केली. रेल्वे प्लॅटफॉर्मवर सर्वांसमक्ष घडलेल्या या खुनाच्या घटनेमुळे खळबळ उडाली होती.
मृत महादेव चव्हाण बेळगाव येथील रहिवासी असून, तो काही वर्षांपासून मिरज-पंढरपूर रस्त्यावरील एका हॉटेलात आचारी म्हणून काम करीत होता. त्याचा साथीदार सत्यनारायणदास भदौरिया साधूच्या वेशात भीक मागत होता. दोघेही रेल्वे स्थानकात प्लॅटफॉर्मवर आश्रयाला असल्याने दोघांची मैत्री होती. सोमवारी सकाळी अकरा वाजता महादेव व सत्यनारायणदास रेल्वे स्थानकाच्या प्लॅटफॉर्म क्रमांक दोनवर मद्य प्राशन करीत बसले होते. महादेव हा सत्यनारायणदास यास दारूच्या नशेत काही

तरी बोलला. त्यामुळे दोघांत बाचाबाची सुरू झाली. दारूच्या नशेत असलेल्या सत्यनारायणदास याने जवळील चाकूने महादेव याच्या पोटावर व छातीवर चार वार केले. या चाकू हल्ल्यात महादेव चव्हाण याच्या पोटातील आतडी बाहेर पडून, त्याचा जागीच मृत्यू झाला. त्याआधी रक्ताच्या थारोळ्यात पडलेल्या महादेवचा आरडाओरडा ऐकून, तेथे बंदोबस्तास असलेले पोलिस कर्मचारी प्रकाश कुंभार व प्रमोद सुरवसे यांनी सत्यनारायणदास भदौरिया यास पकडले.
रेल्वे प्लॅटफॉर्मवर घडलेल्या खुनाच्या घटनेमुळे मोठी गर्दी जमली होती. पोलिस निरीक्षक रमेश भिंगारदेवे यांच्यासह रेल्वे पोलिसांनी मृतदेह व रक्ताने माखलेला चाकू ताब्यात घेतला. खूनप्रकरणी पोलिस कर्मचारी प्रकाश कुंभार यांनी पोलिसात फिर्याद दिली असून, सत्यनारायणदास भदौरिया याच्याविरूध्द खुनाचा गुन्हा दाखल करण्यात आला आहे.

it had created in the farm of S R Deshmukh, a former president of the Latur municipal council, situated next to the (Latur) railway station, to receive water train from Miraj.
The administration and the civic body officials are also apprehensive about the storage of nearly 4 mmcub at the Nagjhari and Sai barrages, situated about 10-15km from Latur city following heavy rainfall that the city and its outskirts received a few days ago. The barrages are on the Manjra river.
"There is almost no water in the Manjra dam having storage capacity of 221 million cubic meter (MMCub) water. Currently, the dam accounts for 0.2 mmcub storage, that too in some isolated places,"said Vijay Cholkhane, water works engineer in the Latur civic body. "We hope the Manjra dam in Beed district, about 70km from Latur, gets ample storage to meet Latu's requirement on a permanent basis,"he said.
The administration and the civic body officials felicitated the railway officials engaged in the water supply work since April. District collector Padurang Pole urged people to make judicious use of water while the municipal commissioner Sudhakar Telang pointed out that the water available presently in Nagjhari and Sai barrages could last till December.
S R Deshmukh, former Latur municipal council president and a Congressman who had provided the huge well in his farm with a capacity to store about 20 lakh liter water, said "I have agreed with the administration not to remove the infrastructure created in and around the well for water supply to the city. In case of any emergency arising in future, the facility can be used."
