Maharashtra: Man puts-up hoardings on roads to make-up with girlfriend
A man put up over 300 banners and hoardings in a plush locality of Maharashtra's Pimpri Chinchwad apparently to make up with his girlfriend after a tiff, but the antic has riled the local police. Nilesh Khedekar, a 25-year-old local businessman, wanted to apologize and make up with his girlfriend after a quarrel and, therefore, came up with this "creative" idea. Here's more.
The posters, carrying the line "(Name of the girl), I am sorry" in bold print with a heart symbol beside it in red, dotted the locality especially prominent traffic intersections. The act, however, is likely to get Khedekar, in trouble with Wakad police approaching the Pimpri Chinchwad civic body to initiate action as per rules dealing with illegal hoardings and defacement of public property.
"We managed to zero in on his friend Vilas Shinde who had helped Khedekar get the flex hoardings printed," police said. "The girl was coming on Friday to the area from Mumbai. Under the cover of darkness in the intervening night of Thursday and Friday, over 300 hoardings were put up on the route which the girl was likely to take," police added.
The Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation had been intimated about the issue, the police said, adding that it was up to the civic body now to initiate further action against Khedekar.
