CPI veteran Govind Pansare cremated sans rituals
The mortal remains of Pansare (82), a prominent anti-toll activist and a rationalist, were consigned to flames by his grandsons Kabir and Malhar in the evening.

Pansare, who was shot at and critically wounded by unidentified assailants outside his housing society after returning from a morning walk on February 16, succumbed to his injuries at Breach Candy hospital in Mumbai late last night.

His wife Uma who also sustained injuries in the attack is said to be out of danger.

Besides Pansare’s grandsons, his daughter Smita Satpute and daughter-in-law Megha were among the family members present at the crematorium.

Earlier, his mortal remains were flown in here from Mumbai after a post-mortem examination was conducted, and were put on a stage at Dasara Chowk here for last darshan.
