Kolhapur: Media has been extremely charitable with a police officer, lately. This deputy superintendent Suraj Gurav told off legislator Hasan Mushrif and Congress’ former minister Satej Patil. The video of it has gone viral on all social media platforms, especially in the media and political circles.

During the mayoral elections in Kolhapur Municipal Corporation, entry was restricted only to corporators. Police bandobast was tight and Gurav was present at that time. Mushrif and Patil demanded entry, when he told them off and the video was shot then. After the duo was stopped, Mushrif was angry and protested. Gurav, in turn, showed them their place.

He said, “I will prepare myself to be sent home or to Gadchiroli, but don’t intimidate me. We are fulfilling our duty and not playing politics. We don’t interfere in politics and there is no need to question my duty, please leave the premises and go home,” Gurav said. Onlookers who shot the video made it viral immediately after realising the importance. Gurav sent back all those who were not corporators. He has been praised for his sincere work and spine shown against demanding politicians, who did not care to follow the rules.
