BSF jawan from Bidar found dead in Assam

Rajkumar Bhalke, the BSF jawan from Bidar whose body was found in Assam on Thursday.

A Border Security Force jawan hailing from Bidar district, Rajkumar Bandeppa Bhalke (34), was found dead near the railway station in Kokrajhar district of Assam on May 23. He was posted at Raiganj, West Bengal.

Bhalke, who had secured one month’s leave, was to return home, his family said. His brother received a call from BSF officials about Bhalke’s death, and was told that the body would reach Bidar on Saturday. The post-mortem was conducted in Assam on Friday.

“If he was travelling to south India, why did he go back north to Assam?” is what the police have yet to understand. “You can board a train from Raiganj to Kolkata, and change trains to reach Hyderabad. You don’t need to go to Assam, if you are coming to south India,” a senior police officer said.

Bhalke’s brother, Veerashetty, said: “when a BSF officer called us on Friday morning, I could not believe it.” According to Veerashetty, Bhalke had visited his hometown in Kapalapur village of Bhalki taluk in April. He was to return home after renewing his leave.

A Kapalapur resident, Ramshetty Pannale, remembered Bhalke as a bright and hardworking student. “We are worried about the mystery behind his death. We are hopeful that BSF officials will conduct an investigation and ensure justice,” he said.

NEKRTC’s city bus service hailed by commuters

: Lakshmi Madiwal has been working as a domestic help for three decades now. She used to commute to the city from her house at Shahpur gate by autorickshaw. This cost her Rs. 700 a month, and couldn’t save money.

However, things have changed now. Lakshmi and her daughter travel to the city in the city buses introduced by the North East Karnataka Road Transport Corporation (NEKRTC). “We save half the money now. What is more, we can watch TV on the bus,” Ms. Lakshmi says.

For the first time the NEKRTC has launched city bus services in small towns, and this has benefited people.

“Before the reorganisation of States, districts like Bidar had private operators. The routes were not nationalised and the only government buses we saw were those that came from other districts or States. It is nice to see that we have so many NEKRTC buses now,” he says. Along with Bidar, city buses have been introduced in Yadgir, Bellary and Hospet. “We were encouraged by the success of the city bus service in Gulbarga and Bijapur,” says G.N. Shivamurthy, managing director, NEKRTC.

Buses ply from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Schedules have been planned so that the gap between two buses on the same route is not more than 10 minutes. “We are planning to introduce daily and monthly passes,” he said.
