CPI leader Pansare, wife shot at in Maha

Senior CPI leader Govind Pansare, who was at the forefront of a campaign against road toll tax, and his wife were on Monday shot at and critically wounded by motorcycle-borne assailants, triggering outrage.

“Pansare is critical but stable,” Aster Aadhar Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer Dr Ulhas Damle told reporters. Damle said Pansare,78, who is undergoing surgery, received three gunshot injuries in the neck, armpit and on the right leg near the knee.

“The blood vessels providing circulation to the brain are intact. Bleeding from the injury has now been controlled. His heartbeat and blood pressure are stable. The operation is going on and it will take few hours more. At this stage, the condition of Pansare is critical but stable,” he said.

Pansare’s wife Uma has a fracture on right side of the skull. Her CT scan showed hemorrhage at the place of fracture, but she is now conscious and being treated in the ICU, the CMO said.

The assailants fired at Pansare and his wife this morning outside the Ideal Housing Society here when the couple was returning after their daily morning walk.
