File Case No. 244 (Respondent No.244)


Shri Dadarao Baburao Adsul

He applied for pension on 9.11.1989 claiming that he was underground


freedom fighter and arrest warrant was issued against him in file No. 201
Outward No. 323 dated 14 Isfandar 1357 Fasli i.e. 14th January 1948 and also
in file No. 7/1357 Fasli Outward No. 407 dated 2 Bahman 1357 Fasli i.e. 2nd
December 1947. he filed affidavit dated 5.2.1998 in which the space for
inserting the name of Dadarao Baburao Arsul and other details of warrant is
left blank.

The warrant was got verified by the Collector from the Police
Superintendent Beed. The Police Superintendent sent report on getting the
same verified from Police Station Ambajogai. Police Inspector Ambajogai
reported on 3.11.1997 that on inquiry the names of some persons were noticed
in the copy of warrant in file No. 7/1357 F Outward No. 407 dated 2 Behman
1357 F which included Dada Valda i.e. S/o Babu Maratha which is similar to
the name of the present applicant. In those days in Marathwada region
normally surname was not stated and instead caste used to be stated.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 considered his
case and teferred to the fact that in absence of original record the copy cannot
be relied upon but the Committee is convinced that he had worked in the
freedom movement and recommended his case. The Additional Collector and
Member Secretary recorded that he does not agree and one of the Member
P.V.Joshi also recorded that the Urdu warrant is not verified.

The Additional Collector by letter dated 15.7.1998 informed the


Deputy Secretary that original record is not available but the copy is given
from available record. However, it is not known whether it is obtained on
payment of fees and it cannot be relied upon. There is also no compliance
with the Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee stated that the Police Superintendent is


satisfied regarding the truthfulness of the warrant and it is issued from the
original record and it is connected with the freedom movement against Nizam
- 721 -

and Zilla Gaurav Samiti has recommended his case for grant of pension and
pension was sanctioned on 4/18 -10.1999. The Under Secretary mentioned in
his note that the warrant is not verified.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he was aged 15


years and he cut shindi trees and wanted to burn them but as the police came
he ran away to Kharada Camp and lived there for 7 to 8 months. He was
doing the work of looking after cattle and was working in the field and has not
done any other work. There was warrant issued against him. He was asked to
give application by Sonaba Sutar, Gobare and he put his thum impression on
the application. He does not know what documents were filed and who
recommended his case.

He filed affidavit before the Commission and also moved application


to call the original record from Tahasil Office, Patoda. There is nothing
particular to be noticed in his affidavit.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrants in File No.


7/1357 F Outward No. 407 dated 2 Behman 1357 F and in file No.201/57
Outward No. 323 dated 14 Isfander 1357 Fasli (14.1.1948). The alleged
original warrant dated 2 Behman 1357 F is in the file received from the
Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is entirely different
from the signatures found on the undisputed correspondence/office notes
signed by the same Tahasildar of Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with
signature on the warrants received from the Judicial Magistrate First Class
Court Georai and warrant contained in file of Tahsildar Patoda and other
warrants received from Ambajogai Police Station. The alleged original
warrant dated 14 Isfander 1357 F is in the file received from collector Beed
pertaining to Patoda Tahsil and signature thereon is entirely different from the
signatures found on undisputed correrspondence/office notes signed by the
same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda and it is not at all tallying with signature on
warrants received from the Court of Judicial Magistrate First Class, Georai,
Ambajogai Police Station and other warrants in the file of Tahsildar Patoda.
- 722 -

This fact is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part on warrant cases of
this report apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus both the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the
Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 723 -

File Case No. 245 (Respondent No.245)


Shri Nivrutti Bhanudas Arsul

He applied on 19.11.1989 for pension on the basis of warrant issued


against him by the Tahasildar Patoda in filed No. 201 of 1357 fasli outward
No.323 dated 14 Isfander 1357 falsi equivalent to 14th January 1948 and also
warrant in No.7/1357 F out ward No. 407 dated 2 Behman 1357 fasli i.e. 2nd
Decembet 1947.

In this file there is no correspondence regarding verification of


warrant.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 10.12.1997 observed that
with reference to warrant in file No. 7/1/1357 F outward No. 407 dated 2
Behman 1357 F that original record is not with the Police Station and the copy
cannot be relied upon, however, Committee is satisfied that he had worked in
freedom movement and recommended his case.

The Member Secretary and Additional Collector did not agree and one
of the Member P.V.Joshi also recorded that warrant is not verified.

The High Power Committee referred to the copy of warrant verified by


Police Station and the Zilla Gaurav Samiti’s recommendation and sanctioned
pension on 17.9.1999. The Under Secretary, however, pointed out that there is
no verification from the original record as stated by the police station.

He appeared before Mane Committee. His statement was recorded and


he stated that he cut shindi tress and as police were arresting persons he ran
away and lived at Kharda Camp for 7 to 8 months. He used to work in the
adjoining fields. He used to provide breads. He did not go out of Karanji
Village and did not work. He was hardly 12 to 15 years. There was warrant
issued against him but he does not know why it was issued. Namdev Bala and
Ram Kisan told him to file application and they have done the entire work and
the procedure. He has put his thumb mark.
- 724 -

Before the Commission has filed zerox copy of warrant in file No.7
outward No.407 dated 2 Behman 1357 F issued by Ambajogai Police Station
and also filed affidavit in which more or less he has stated the same fact in
short.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrants in File No.


7/1357 F Outward No. 407 dated 2 Behman 1357 F and in file No.201/57
Outward No. 323 dated 14 Isfander 1357 Fasli (14.1.1948). The alleged
original warrant dated 2 Behman 1357 F is in the file received from the
Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is entirely different
from the signatures found on the undisputed correspondence/office notes
signed by the same Tahasildar of Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with
signature on the warrants received from the Judicial Magistrate First Class
Court Georai and warrant contained in file of Tahsildar Patoda and other
warrants received from Ambajogai Police Station. The alleged original
warrant dated 14 Isfander 1357 F is in the file received from collector Beed
pertaining to Patoda Tahsil and signature thereon is entirely different from the
signatures found on undisputed correrspondence/office notes signed by the
same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda and it is not at all tallying with signature on
warrants received from the Court of Judicial Magistrate First Class, Georai,
Ambajogai Police Station and other warrants in the file of Tahsildar Patoda.

This fact is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part on warrant cases of
this report apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus both the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the
Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 725 -

File Case No. 246 (Respondent No.246)


Shri Seetaram Natha Gaikwad

He applied for pension on 29.1.1999 and also stated that he was


underground freedom fighter and the warrant was issued against him.

He produced a Xerox copy of warrant signed as true copy by Notary


and from the true copy produced by him it appears that it is a copy of another
true copy alleged to have been signed by Assistant Superintendent, Court,
CJJD Gevrai.

The warrant is alleged to have been issued by Tahasildar Patoda


bearing file No. CCM .205 outward No. 209 1357 Fasli dated 24 Isfandar
1357 Fasli that is 24th January 1948. In his affidavit dated 15.1.1991 he stated
that arrest warrant was issued against him. He filed another affidavit dated
11.03.1999 making further improvement and adding various incidents not
stated in the earlier affidavit and also produced affidavit of Vishnath Devrao
Rakh in support.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting held on 29.06.1999 stated that
Urdu warrant copy cannot believe in the absence of original record which was
not available. However, the Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced about his
participation in freedom movement and recommended his case to which one
of the member P.V.Joshi recorded objection on the ground that the copy of
warrant is not verified and only copy is produced.

The Additional Collector and Member Secretary wrote to the Section


Officer on 15.09.1999 that although Zilla Gaurav Samiti recommended the
warrant is not verified and is not reliable and case is not fit for sanction.

The High Power Committee placing reliance on the copy of warrant


referred to the contents of his application and accepted the recommendation.
To the note put up there is one remark by Under Secretary that in the absence
of original record the copy is not reliable, yet pension was sanctioned.
- 726 -

He appeared before the Mane Committee and stated that warrant was
issued against him. He also stated that Dnyonoba Patil Rakh prepared his
application and obtained his thumb mark. He does not know what other
documents were produced.

In the affidavit filed before the Commission he has made further


improvement by stating the names of renowned freedom fighters like Swami
Ramanand Thirth and Govind Bhai Shroff for the first time.

The original warrant bearing file No. --- Outward No. 205 dated 24
Isfander 1357 Fasli (24.1.1948) is in the warrants received from the Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. The signature on this warrant is only like
initial and is entirely different from the signature found on undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda
and also is not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambajogai, Patoda Tahsil and even other warrants received
from Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from the three different


sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai (6 warrants) but
the warrant bearing File No. 205/1357 F Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander
1357 Fasli (24.1.1948), copy whereof is produced and relied upon in this case
is not amongst those 29 warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to
be forged and false by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this
report on warrant cases for reasons given there under how can copy of
warrant, original whereof is not in existence can be believed to be genuine and
true.

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 727 -

File Case No.248 (Respondent No. 248)


Shri Shama Govind Kadam

Shama Govind Kadam applied for pension on 20.6.1989 basing his


claim as freedom fighter on arrest warrant issued against him.

He produced Xerox copy of warrant which is not signed by anybody as


true copy and from the copy produced by him it appears that it is a copy of
another true copy alleged to have been issued by the Ambajogai Police Station
whereon there is no endorsement of payment of fees. The copy of warrant
produced by him is in respect of file No.21/2 1357 Fasli Outward No.214
dated Nil.

The Collector, Beed sent the Xerox copy of warrant enclosing list of
60 persons with specific query for verification to the Police Inspector,
Ambajogai.

The Police Sub Inspector, Ambajogai reported to the Collector on


3.10.1997 that on verification from the copy 27 names were tallying which
include the name of Shama Govind Marath. However, the original record is
not available with the Police Station and from the copy it does not appear to
have been issued on payment of fees.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to


facts and stated that the warrant appears to be against congress workers issued
by Nizam Government and similar name is in the warrant. In view of the fact
that the original record is not available and copy is not issued on payment of
fees, the warrant cannot be relied upon, however, the the Zilla Gaurav samiti is
convinced about his participation in freedom movement and recommended his
case. The Additional Collector and Member Secretary made endorsement that
he does not agree to which one of the members P.V.Joshi also made
endorsement that warrant is not verified.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 15.07.1997


and stated that he does not comply with the Government Resolution dated
4.7.1995.
- 728 -

The High Power Committee referred to the verification of warrant by


Ambajogai Police Station and the fact that the original record was available
with the Police Station accepted the recommendation and granted pension.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he attended one


meeting in which there was firing and he ran away to Kharda and stayed at
Kharda camp for one month and returned hom and looked after his agriculture.
Thereafter he did nothing in the freedom movement. However warrant of
arrest was issued against him.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthens the
suspicion doubt about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 729 -

File Case No. 249 (Respondent No. 249)


Narhari Aba More

He applied for pension on 23.1.1990 and claimed pension on the basis


of arrest warrant issued against him and produced Xerox copy of warrant with
translation in English issued in File No. 21/1357 Fasli Outward No.217 dated
Nil. The Xerox copy is not signed by anybody and appears to be copy issued
by Police Station Ambajogai. The Collector Beed enclosing a list of 44
persons sent the warrant to the Police Inspector, Ambajogai. In the report
dated 3.10.1997 the Police Inspector Ambajogai stated that there were 19
names similar to the names in the list including the name of Narhari Aba
Maratha.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting held on 16.12.1999 referred to


the warrant and the report of Police Station Ambajogai and stated that the
copy produced cannot be relied upon but the Samiti is convinced about his
participation in freedom movement and recommended his case. However,
Member Secretary and Additional Collector made endorsement that he does
not agree and one of the member P.V.Joshi also made endorsement that the
warrant is not verified.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 15.07.1998


that the copy does not appear to have been issued on payment of fees. The
original record is not available and warrant copy cannot be relied upon and
there is no compliance of Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee accepted the recommendation, though,


Under Secretary made endorsement that warrant is not verified and sanctioned
pension.

He appeared before the Mane Committee and stated that he was aged
20 years and stayed at Kharda camp for six months and used to distribute
bhakari (bread) and he has not done any other work. No warrant was issued
against him. He does not know who has prepared his application for pension
but he has put his thumb mark. He is not aware of what documents are filed.
He filed copy of warrant and he stated that he would produce certified copy.
- 730 -

In the affidavit filed before the Commission he has made further


improvement by stating that in the Nizam State Hindus were not admitted in
School and also referred to some incidents which were not referred to earlier.

The case depends on the reliability of warrants in File No. 21/57 F


Outward No. 217 dated 17 Bahman 1357 F (17.12.47).

The Commission received in all 29 warants from three sources i.e.


Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8 Warrants) and
Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai (6 warrants) but the warrant
bearing file No. 21/57 Outward No. 217 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli copy
where of is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to be not genuine by the
Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant cases for
reasons given there under how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not
in existence can be believed to be genuine and true. The report dated
3.10.1997 of Ambajogai Police Station addressed to the Collector Beed to the
effect that out of 47 names given in the list names of only 19 persons are in the
copy of warrant sent to him and other 28 persons are not there in the copy of
warrant further strengthen doubt about genuineness of the warrant. Thus the
warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the Sanmanpatra and allied
benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled forthwith and the
Commission recommends accordingly.
- 731 -

File Case No.250 (Respondent No. 250)


Shri. Shankar Kisan (Deceased) represented by wife Lakhapati

Application was given by Shankar Kisan on 6.7.1990 He claimed that


arrest warrant was issued against him bearing Outward No. 214 file No. 21/2
1357 Fasli dated Nil. He filed affidavit dated 26.06.1990 in which he has
referred to the warrant. The warrant copy produced is only a Xerox copy
signed by Special Executive Magistrate and appears to be a copy of copy
issued by Police Station Ambajogai.

The warrant was sent for verification to the Police Station Ambajogai
by Collector Beed enclosing a copy of warrant and list of 60 persons on
26.8.1997 and Police Inspector, reported on 3.10.1997 that the original record
is available with the police station but the copy does not appear however
issued on payment of fees and it contains similar 27 names including Shankar
Kisan Maratha as compared to the list of 60 persons.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting held on 29.06.1999 stated that
Urdu warrant copy couldn’t be believed in the absence of original record,
which was not available. The Zilla Gaurav Samiti referred to the verification
report and observed that warrant cannot be relied but Samiti is convinced
about his participation in freedom movement and recommended his case. One
of the member P.V.Joshi endorsed that the copy of warrant is not verified.

The Additional Collector and Member Secretary wrote to the Deputy


Secretary on 15.07.1999 that the warrant cannot be relied up and there is no
compliance with the Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee however accepted the recommendation


referring to the verification report and sanctioned pension.

Before the Mane Committee Lakhapatibai appeared and she stated that
she is not aware of any activities of her husband regarding freedom
movement.
- 732 -

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 733 -

File Case No.251 (Respondent No. 251)


Shri. Gopinath Ganapati Shinde

Gopinath Ganapati Shinde (deceased) represented by wife


Shewantabai.

He applied for freedom fighter’s pension on 23.1.1990 placing his


claim on warrant of arrest issued against him in file No. 21 Outward No. 217
dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli (17.12.1947) and (2) file No. 49 of 1357 Fasli
outward No. 227 dated 27 Dai 1357 Fasli equivalent to 27th November 1947.

He produced copy of warrant signed by Special Executive Magistrate


as true copy, He has also produced another Xerox copy of warrant in file No.
49 of 1357 Fasli outward No. 227 dated 27 Dai 1357 Fasli. The Collector
Beed sent letter dated 26,8,1997 to the Police Inspector Ambajogai for
verification of warrant enclosing a copy of warrant and list of 44 persons and
the report dated 3.10.1997 shows that copy of warrant sent was in respect of
file No.21 Outward No. 217 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli i.e. 17th December
1947 and it is clearly stated in the report that the original record is not
available in the police station and the copy has not been issued on payment of
fees, however name of Gopinath Ganapati appears and there are 19 names out
of the list of 44 persons sent by the Collector.

He filed affidavit dated 15.1.1997 in which he has referred the names


of number of freedom fighters including the names of Ramling Swami
Ravsaheb Patwardhan and others, quoting some incidents not referred to
earlier in the application.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting held on 16.12.1997 referred to


the warrant in file No.217 outward No.227 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli and
after noting that copy is not issued on payment of fees and original record is
not available and therefore copy cannot be believed however the Zilla Gaurav
Samiti is convinced that he took part in freedom movement and recommended
his case. The Member Secretary and Additional Collector recorded that he
- 734 -

does not agree with the recommendation and one of the member P.V.Joshi
also stated that there is no verification y of warrant.

The Additional Collector and Member Secretary wrote to the Deputy


Secretary on 15.07.1998 that original is not available and copy is also not
obtained by payment of fees, but same name appears to be in the warrant.
However he does not comply with the provisions of Government Resolution
dated 4.7.1005.

Before the High Power Committee note was put up mentioning that in
the verification report the name of the person is appearing in the copy of
warrant and Zilla Gaurav Samiti has recommended. However, the Under
Secretary recorded that as observed by the Deputy Collector the copy is no
trustworthy and it is necessary to get satisfied about the truthfulness of the
copy. Thereafter further note was put up that the name appeared in the
warrant and Zilla Gaurav Samiti has recommended. The Member Secretary
Advocate Rajabhau Zarkar made a detailed note that the original record is not
available as stated by the District Collector and Police Inspector has stated that
original record is not available in the Police Station and the copy is not issued
on payment of fees and Zilla Gaurav Samiti is not satisfied regarding
truthfulness of the warrant copy and one member has clearly mentioned that
the warrant copy is not verified. In the Beed district similar cases in respect of
4-5 warrants are pending before the Government and in respect of all these
warrants it is necessary to get report from the Collector, Beed and unless a
detailed report is sent by the Collector in these matters, these matters be kept
pending.

Thereafter Deputy Secretary Mr. Nalawade made note that the warrant
is issued by Beed Police Station and not by Tahasildar Patoda and the original
record is available with the Police Station and warrant is in respect of
activities against Nizam Government. The other contents of the letter of the
Additional Collector is in typed proforma and similar in all cases but since the
Zilla Gaurav Samiti has recommended, recommendation be accepted and after
which the Member Secretary Advocate Zarkar who had made a detailed note
in respect of 4 to 5 warrants of Beed district mentioning that a detailed report
- 735 -

of Collector be called has merely stated that claim be sanctioned and


consequently pension was granted.

As the person was no more when the Mane Committee issued notice
his wife appeared before the Mane Committee and stated that she has no
personal knowledge.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrants in file No.


49/57 Outward No. 227 dated 27 Dai 1357 Fasli (27.11.1947) and File No. 21
Outward No. 217 dated 17 Bahman 1357 Fasli (17.12.47). The alleged
original warrant in the file No. 49/57 Outward No. 227 dated 27 Dai 1357
Fasli is in the file received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature
on this warrant is entirely different from the signatures found on the
undisputed correspondence/office notes signed by the same Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai and warrant contained in
file of Tahsildar Patoda.

It does not tally even with other warrants received from Ambajogai
Police Station. This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the
expert opinion.

The original warrant in file No. 21/57 F Outward No. 227 dated 17
Behman 1357 Fasli, copy whereof is relied upon in this case, is not made
available for verification from any source despite notice to all concerned.
When 29 original warrants made available from three different sources are
found to be forged one how a simple copy original whereof is not in existence
can be believed to be a genuine document.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Ambajogai Police Station to the effect


that out of 44 names given in the list names of only 19 persons are in the copy
of warrant further strengthens doubt about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra dated and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be
cancelled forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 253 (Respondent No.253)


Shri Deorao Kisanrao Lad

Applied for grant of pension on 22.02.1990. However in the original


application he did not refer to the warrant. He claimed pension on the basis of
warrant issued against him in file No. 205 Outward No. 209 1357 Fasli dated
24 Isfinder 1357 Fasli equivalent to 24 January 1948 and produced only Xerox
copy of the warrant which is not even signed as true copy by any body and the
Xerox copy appears to have been prepared from another copy which itself is a
copy of true copy issued by Assistant Superintendent, Gevrai Court and in the
Xerox there is endorsement dated 25.9.1990 that “this Xerox copy is true copy
of original copy issued on 20.9.1990”.

He filed affidavit dated 16.1.1991 stating that arrest warrant was issued
against him in the freedom movement of Hyderabad.

He filed further affidavit dated 1.6.1999 wherein he referred to further


incidents not stated earlier and also named number of freedom fighters for the
first time claiming that he worked with them and also stated that he was
required to live away from his house for 10 to 11 months and this statement
also made for the first time.

In support he filed the affidavits of Dnyanoba Jijaba Bangar and


Bhimrao Umaji Bangar dated 2.9.1999. As against Bhimrao Umaji Bangar
there was arrest warrant for 9 months.

The warrant was sent for verification by the District Collector Beed to
the Civil Judge, Gevrai and the Civil Judge Gevrai reported on 2.11.1997 that
original record is not available but the copy sent to him appears to have been
issued to one Advocate V.T.Chavan from the Court along with his report he
enclosed a list of 75 persons stating that these names are there in the warrant
and the name of Devrao Kisanrao Lad is at Sr.No. 169.

However, there is another report of same Civil Judge who was


identically the same person dated 10.9.1998 in which he has stated that the of
warrants No. 201, 202, 203, 204, 205 and 617 of 1357 Fasli appear to have
- 737 -

been issued by the Tahasildar but the original record is not available in the
Court and verification report be called from the Tahasidar Patoda.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting held on dated Nil referred to the
Urdu copy of warrant and its Marathi translation and stated that in the absence
of original record copies cannot be believed but papers pertain to the act
against Nizam Government and Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced that he had
worked in the freedom movement and recommended sanction.

The Member Secretary and Additional Collector wrote letter dated


15.9.1999 to the Section Officer stating that the original record is not available
and there is no compliance with the provisions of Government Resolution
dated 4.7.1995 and in such situation decision may be taken by the Government
at higher level.

The High Power Committee however referred to the copy of warrant


produced and it is further stated in the note that earlier in another file bearing
report of verification of this warrant and the original record is available, name
appears in the copy as recorded by the Civil Judge Gevrai and the
recommendation of Zilla Gaurav Samiti is accepted.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he hoisted try


colour flag at Tahasil Office and cut shindi trees and after this he ran way.
Kashinathrao Jadhav has done the entire work regarding his application for
pension and he is not aware of the documents produced and merely put thumb
mark. He does not know Dyanoba Jijaba Bangar but he knows Bhimrao
Umaji Bangar.

Before the Commission he filed affidavit containing further details and


various incidents. He stated in his affidavit for the first time that for 13
months he was absconding.

The original warrant bearing file No. --- Outward No. 205 dated 24
Isfander 1357 Fasli (24.1.1948) is in the warrants received from the Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. The signature on this warrant is only like
initial and is entirely different from the signature found on undisputed
- 738 -

correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda


and also is not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambajogai, Patoda Tahsil and even other warrants received
from Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from the three different


sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai (6 warrants) but
the warrant bearing File No. 205/1357 F Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander
1357 Fasli (24.1.1948), copy whereof is produced and relied upon in this case
is not amongst those 29 warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to
be forged and false by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this
report on warrant cases for reasons given there under how can copy of
warrant, original whereof is not in existence can be believed to be genuine and
true.

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 256 (Respondent No.256)


Shrimati Shivubai Dnyanoba Rakh

She applied for grant of pension on 28.01.1991 claiming that she took
part in the freedom movement and she used to cook food for the persons in the
Camp and also convey secret messages to them. In her affidavit dated
24.01,1991 she stated that arrest warrant was issued against her in file No.
205/1357 Fasli. She produced Xerox copy of warrant in file No. 205/1357
Fasli along with Marathi translation and mentioned in the Marathi Translation
Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfinder 1357 Fasli equivalent to 24th January
1948.The copy of warrant produced is itself a copy of copy signed by Special
Executive Magistrate which in turn is a copy of true copy issued by Assistant
Superintendent, Civil Court, Gevrai on 20.9.2990 and from the endorsement
which appears in the Xerox copy it is seen that there is endorsement dated
24.9.1990 “verified that this Xerox copy is true copy of original copy issued
by the Gevrai Court on 20.09.1990”.

In the verification report given to the Collector, the Civil Judge,


Gevrai, stated that original record is available in Court and copy has been
issued to one V.T.Chavan Advocate and enclosed a list of names referred to in
the list provided by the Collector and eported that the similar names are
appearing in the warrant.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 29.1.1999 stated that the
original record of the warrant was not available but the name appears in the
copy of warrant. No positive recommendation was given.

The Additional Collector by letter dated 20.3.1999 addressed to the


Section Officer stated that the original record is not available and there is no
compliance of Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee stated that the basis of the same warrant
there is verification report in another file of which Xerox copy is retained in
this file and sanctioned pension.
- 740 -

She appeared before Mane Committee and stated that she was
providing bhakari (bread) to the freedom fighters.

In the affidavit filed before the Commission she stated that she use to
supply bhakari on the instructions of her husband.

The original warrant bearing file No. --- Outward No. 205 dated 24
Isfander 1357 Fasli (24.1.1948) is in the warrants received from the Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. The signature on this warrant is only like
initial and is entirely different from the signature found on undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda
and also is not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambajogai, Patoda Tahsil and even other warrants received
from Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from the three different


sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai (6 warrants) but
the warrant bearing File No. 205/1357 F Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander
1357 Fasli (24.1.1948), copy whereof is produced and relied upon in this case
is not amongst those 29 warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to
be forged and false by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this
report on warrant cases for reasons given there under how can copy of

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the

File Case No.263 (Respondent No. 263)


Shri. Limbaji Abaji Bangar

He applied for pension on 27.07.1990 as underground freedom fighter


and also produced Xerox copy of warrant in file No. 21/10 Outward No. 126
dated 16 Amardad 1357 Fasli equivalent to 16th June 1948. In the affidavit
dated 5.8.1990 which is not sworn before any authority and which is only
letter, on stamp he has stated that warrant of arrest was issued against him. He
filed supporting affidavits of Anna Eknath Telalp , Gajaba Mane in which the
name of Limbaji Abaji Bangar added afterwards to the typed affidavit and
similar is the affidavit of Nana Ganapati Sanap with similar addition dated
27.7.1990.

The warrant was sent for verification by the District Collector, Beed to
Tahasildar on 3.9.1997 enclosing copy of warrant and list of 21 persons to
which the Tahasildar replied on 15.11.1997 stating that the name of Limbaji
Abaji Bangar in the warrant. He has however stated that original record is not
available and verification is obviously done from the copy itself.

Thereafter Limbaji Abaji Bangar filed another affidavit dated 26.2.99


stating therein names of Sahebrao Ganapati Sanap and others. He further
stated that for 7 to 8 months he was required to live away from his house.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti considered his case in the meeting dated
29.1.1999 and recommended his case on the basis of warrant stating that his
name appears in the copy and therefore he has taken part in the freedom
movement. One of the member P.V.Joshi stated that he does no agree with the
recommendation .

The Additional Collector and Member Secretary wrote to the Section


Officer on 20.3.1999 that there is no compliance with Government Resolution
and in the list the name is Limba Abaji r/o Bhayal however in the application
he has stated as R/o Wadzari.

The matter came before the High Power Committee. It is mentioned in


the note that he worked against Nizam Government and warrant was issued
against him for arrest. He has filed copy of warrant, which was sent for
- 742 -

verification to the Tahasildar Patoda by the District Collector and Tahasildar


reported that the original record is not available but the copy is obtained in
due course on payment of fees. The original record in respect of warrant is
sent to the Collector office by the Tahasildar. However, there is name of the
persons in he warrant and the Zilla Gaurav samiti has recommended and
therefore the High Power Committee accepted recommendation and submitted
his claim.

The Under Secretary however mentioned that the warrant is not


verified.

He did not appear before the Mane Committee due to illness.

He filed affidavit before the Commission giving reference to the


warrant and stating that for 13 months he was living away from his house.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.21/10


Outward No. 126 dated 16 Amardad 1357 Fasli (16.6.1948).

The Commission received in all 29 original warrants from three


different sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.21/10
Outward No. 126 dated 16 Amardad 1357 Fasli, copy whereof is produced and
relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29 warrants. When all 29
warrants received are found to be forged and false by the Commission as
discussed is separate part of this report on warrant cases for the reasons given
thereunder how can a copy of warrant, original whereof is not in existence can
be believed to be genuine and true.

The report dated 15.1.1997 of Tahsildar Patoda to the effect that the
copy of warrarnt contains more names than 21 names given in the list further
strengthen doubt about genuiness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No.264 (Respondent No.264)


Ganapat Eknath Mandve

Ganapat Eknath Mandve applied for pension on 23.1.1990 on the basis


of arrest warrant issued against him in the File No. 21/ 1357 Fasli Outward
No.217 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli equivalent to 17 December 1947. He
produced Xerox copy of warrant, which is not even signed as true copy by
anybody, but appears to be a copy of copy issued by Police Station
Ambajogai.

In his affidavit dated 7.11.1990 he has referred to the warrant issued


against him. The warrant was sent by District Collector to Police Station
Ambejogai on 26.7.1997 enclosing copy of warrant and list of 44 persons for
verification. The Police Inspector reported on 3.10.1997 that original record is
available at Police Station but the copies cannot be said to have been issued on
payment of fees and further stated that names of 19 persons similar to the
names in the list are found in the copy in which there is name of Ganapat
Eknath Maratha at Sr. No. 15.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to the
copy of warrant and the fact that the original record is in the police station but
the copy is not obtained on payment of fees, the name of the persons in the
copy, which has not been issued by the police station on payment of fees and
copy cannot be relied upon but the Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced about his
work in the freedom movement. The Member Secretary and Additional
Collector noted that he does not agree and one member P.V.Joshi also pointed
out that there is no verification of warrant and made a dissenting note
accordingly.

The High Power Committee accepted the recommendation of Zilla


Gaurav Samiti, report of police station, Ambajogai and sanctioned pension.

He appeared before Mane Committee and referred to the warrant


issued against him. He stated that he will produce certified copy within 8
days. However he has not produced.
- 744 -

The case depends on the reliability of warrants in File No. 21/57 F


Outward No. 217 dated 17 Bahman 1357 F (17.12.47).

The Commission received in all 29 warants from three sources i.e.


Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8 Warrants) and
Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai (6 warrants) but the warrant
bearing file No. 21/57 Outward No. 217 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli copy
where of is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to be not genuine by the
Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant cases for
reasons given there under how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not
in existence can be believed to be genuine and true. The report dated
3.10.1997 of Ambajogai Police Station addressed to the Collector Beed to the
effect that out of 47 names given in the list names of only 19 persons are in the
copy of warrant sent to him and other 28 persons are not there in the copy of
warrant further strengthen doubt about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 266 (Respondent No.266)


Shri Narayan Abaji Gurav

Narayan Abaji applied for pension on 9.10.1980 on the basis of arrest


warrant in file No. 21/1 Outward No. 617 dated 17 Tir 1357 Fasli equivalent
to 17th May 1948 and produced Xerox copy of warrant, which is not even
signed as true copy by anybody.

The District Collector Beed wrote to Civil Judge Gevrai on 16.7.1997


to verify the copy of warrant and also sent to the Tahasildar Patoda for
submitting his verification report.

It appears that Narayan Abaji filed petition No. 4755/95 in the High
Court and notice had been issued to him for filing further evidence in view of
Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

Thereafter he filed another affidavit on 28-7-1997 stating further


improved story and adding the names of Anna Eknath Telap and Nivruti
Fakira Dhakane, Kisan Bangar etc.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 24.4.1998 did not
recommend his case as it was not satisfied with the copy of warrant.

The High Power Committee however referred to he copy of warrant


and verification report and sanctioned pension.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that warrant of arrest


was issued against him.

In the affidavit filed before the Commission also he made reference to


the warrant.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.21/1


Outward No.617 dated 7th Thir 1357 Fasli (07.05.1948). The alleged original
warrant is in the file received from the Gevrai Court. The signatures on this
warrant is only like initial and is entirely different from the signature found on
the undisputed correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e.
- 746 -

Tahasildar, Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with the signature on
warrants in the file of police station Ambejogai the warrants contained in file
of Tahasildar Patoda and other warrants received from the Judicial Magistrate
First Class Court, Georai.

This apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert opinion.
The general observations made in separate part of this report on warrant cases
apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled and has failed to
prove his entitlement to the Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to
be and should be cancelled forthwith and the Commission recommends
accordingly.

File Case No.267 (Respondent No. 267)


Apparao Jaybhay (Deceased) represented by Bhagubai

Bhagubai Apparao Jaybhay filed application on 22.3.1990 as legal


representative of Apparao Jaybhay. She has produced Xerox copy as well as
one copy claimed to be certified copy of warrant in file No. 101 Outward No.
Nil dated 14 Bahman 1357 Fasli dated 14th December 1947. From the copy
produced by her claimed to be certified copy, it appears that the same was
issued by Tahasil office, Patoda. The translation of the copy of warrant No.
101 dated 14 Baheman 1357 Fasli equivalent to 14 December 1947 shows that
there is only one name mentioned with reference to Sr.No 15 which is at Sr.
No. 15 Appa s/o Vitthal R/o Kakddhira. She filed affidavit dated 22.3.1990
stating that her husband took part in the freedom movement. Naturally she has
no personal knowledge. She filed another affidavit dated 30.5.2989 which is
also naturally not her personal knowledge.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 9.3.1999 referred to the
arrest warrant issued against him and to the fact that the original record is
submitted to the Collector office by the Tahasildar and the copy has been
issued by the Tahasil Office and the original record is available, recommended
the grant of pension.

The Additional Collector by letter dated Nil addressed to the Section


Officer recorded that the copy is not reliable and there is no compliance of
Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee referred to the warrant and the note
recommended sanction. However, thereafter the Member Secretary asked
office to re-examine the matter.

Further note was put up regarding the warrant, its verification and the
fact that name was in the warrant (copy) and recommendation of the Zilla
Gaurav Samiti and pension was sanctioned.

Bhagubai appeared before Mane Committee she has no personal


knowledge.
- 748 -

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.Nil


Outward No. 101 dated 14 Bahman 1357 Fasli (14.12.1947). He has produced
certified copy of the so called warrant on record. The alleged original warrant
is received from Collector office Beed in files pertaining to Patoda Tahsil. The
signature on this warrant is entirely different from the signature found on the
undisputed correspondence/office notes signed by the same Tahasildar and it
also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants contained in the file of
police station Ambajogai and of the warrants received from Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai as well as other warrants in file of
Tahsildar Patoda as discussed separately in the part of this report on warrant
cases. Thus the warrant not being genuine he is not entitled to the
Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 268 (Respondent No.268)


Shri Gahininath Mahada Rakh

Gahininath Mahada Rakh applied for pension on 7.3.1986 on the basis


of arrest warrant issued against him in file no. 101 outward No. 190 dated 14
Behman 1357 Fasli equivalent to 14 December 1947.

He also produced copy of another warrant in file No. CC/205/1357


Fasli Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander 1357 Fasli equivalent to 24.1.1948.

He filed affidavit dated 22.02.1999 referring to the arrest warrant in


file No. Nil outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander 1357 Fasli.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 9.3.1999 referred to the
fact that the original record is not available and the names of the persons
mentioned in the list are not in the warrant and the Xerox copy cannot be
verified. Thereafter in the endorsement that the Zilla Gaurav Samiti does not
recommend word “Not” nahi is scored out and it is stated by the Chairman in
his own handwriting “verification is proper warrant is in connection with the
freedom movement and case is fit for sanction.”

The Additional Collector, wrote to the Section Officer that original


record is not available names of the persons in the list are not in the warrant
and verification done on this cannot be relied upon. There is no compliance of
Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee, however accepted the recommendation


and sanctioned pension.

He appeared before the Mane Committee and stated that he attended


the meeting of Wamanrao Vaze, and from there went to Chikhali and cut
shindig trees. The police arrested some persons but he and others ran away and
for 11 months he stayed in forest. He will produce certified copy of warrant
which has not produced so far.

In the affidavit before the Commission he has referred to the warrant.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.


- 750 -

101/1357 Outward No. 190 dated 14 Behman 1357 Fasli (14.12.1947). The
alleged original warrant is in the file received from the Collector Beed
pertaining to Patoda Tahsil. The signatures on this warrant is entirely different
from the signature found on the undisputed correspondence/office notes
signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar, Patoda and it also not at all tallying
with the signature on warrants in the file of police station Ambajogai, Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court Georai and even on other warrants contained in
file of Tahasildar Patoda. This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed
by expert opinion. The general observation made in separate part of this report
on warrant cases apply Matatis Mutandis to this case.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from three different


sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai (6 Warrants) but
the warrant bearing file No. 205/57 F out ward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander copy
whereof is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants. When all 29 warrants alleged to be original are found to be forged
and false by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on
warrant cases for reasons given there under, how can copy of warrant, original
whereof is not is existence can be believed to be genuine and true.

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 269 (Respondent No. 269)


Babasaheb Ashruba Bangar

Applied for pension on 2.7.1990 on the basis of arrest warrant issued


against him in file No. 21/2 1357 Fasli outward No. 214 dated Nil.

He produced Xerox copy of warrant which is signed as true copy by


Police Station Ambejogai.

He filed affidavit dated 14.06.1990 mentioning the warrant file No.

He again filed affidavit dated 15.7.1997 wherein there is sufficient


improvement made in the facts stated in the earlier affidavit.

The copy was sent for verification from Collector Beed to Police
Station Ambejogai on 26.7.1997 enclosing copy of warrant and list of 60
persons making specific queries. The Police Inspector reported on 3.10.1997
that original record is available at the police station and out of list supplied to
him 27 similar names appeared in the warrant which includes the name of
Baba Ashruba.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997referred to the


copy of warrant and stated that copy from which this copy is prepared was not
issued on payment of fees and cannot be believed, yet the Zilla Gaurav Samiti
is convinced that he worked in the freedom movement against Nizam
Government and recommended his case. The Member Secretary and
Additional Collector recorded that he does not agree with the recommendation
and one of the member P.V.Joshi has also made remarks that warrant is not
properly verified.

The Additional Collector, wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 15.7.1998


that the copy of warrant cannot be relied upon and there is no compliance of
Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee, however accepted the recommendation


and sanctioned pension.
- 752 -

He appeared before the Mane Committee and his statement was


recorded he stated that he was aged 12 to 13 years. He attended the meeting
of Wamanrao Vaze, and from there he went to his sisters house. The warrant
was issued against him.

In the affidavit filed before the Commission he has stated further


improved story and has added that even children age 4 to 6 years were
working in the freedom movement.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

Outward No. 407 dated 2Behman1357 Fasli equivalent to 2 December 1947

He filed affidavit dated 22.02.1999 referring to the arrest warrant in


file No. Nil outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander 1357 Fasli.

The District Collector Beed had called for verification report from the
Police Superintendent Beed and Police Superintendent by his letter dated
3.11.1997 reported that the warrant was verified though Ambejogai Police
Station and on getting the same from person knowing Urdu the names of 27
persons were noticed which include the name of Namdev S/o Mahadev which
is similar to the name of the person claiming pension. In this report reference
is made to warrant in file No. 7/1 1357 Fasli Outward No. 407 and it is
mentioned that original record is not available and from copy it does not
appear to have been issued on payment of fees. This reference is obviously to
the copy from which the Xerox copy has been prepared. It is further stated
that it is not known whether the person who applied for pension is the same
person as mentioned in the warrant as there is difference in the name and the
name mentioned as Namdev S/o Mahadev Dhed.

He filed affidavit dated 24.12.1997 referring to the warrant of 1357


Fasli and stated names of number of freedom fighters and instances to which
he had not made reference earlier. There is also letter of the Tahasildar
addressed to the Section Officer in response to his letter dated 12.10.1998
regarding verification of the warrant from the Xerox copy of warrant in file
No. 7/1357 Fasli Outward No. 407 wherein it is stated that there is name of
Namdev Mahadev in the copy of warrant. However, this refer only to names
of 10 persons. It is also stated that original record is not available.
- 754 -

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to the
report of the Police Station Ambejogai and mentioned that the warrant copy
cannot be believed in the absence of original record and no proof of copy
having been obtained on payment of fees, however Zilla Gaurav samiti is
convinced about his participation in the freedom movement. The Member
Secretary and additional Collector did not agree with the remarks of the Zilla
Gaurav Samiti and one of the member P.V. Joshi stated that warrant is not
verified.

The Additional Collector, wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 15.7.1998


that the warrant copy is not reliable and there is no compliance of 4.7.1995
Government Resolution.

The High Power Committee, however accepted the recommendation


even after referring to the report of the Police Station that original record is not
available it is further stated that the Tahasildar is convinced that the name of
the persons are included in the warrant and there is recommendation of Zilla
Gaurav Samiti and sanctioned pension.

He appeared before the Mane Committee. He only sent one more


Xerox copy of warrant and its marathi translation. His statement was
recorded. He stated that he resided at Kharda Camp as police was chasing him

Before the Commission he moved for summons for production of the


original warrant and also filed affidavit making lot of improvement in earlier
statement. He has also stated that he is aged 83 years and due to old age and
weakness he will not be able to appear.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrants in File No.


7/1357 F Outward No. 407 dated 2 Behman 1357 F and in file No.201/57
Outward No. 323 dated 14 Isfander 1357 Fasli (14.1.1948). The alleged
original warrant dated 2 Behman 1357 F is in the file received from the
Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is entirely different
from the signatures found on the undisputed correspondence/office notes
signed by the same Tahasildar of Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with
signature on the warrants received from the Judicial Magistrate First Class
- 755 -

Court Georai and warrant contained in file of Tahsildar Patoda and other
warrants received from Ambajogai Police Station. The alleged original
warrant dated 14 Isfander 1357 F is in the file received from collector Beed
pertaining to Patoda Tahsil and signature thereon is entirely different from the
signatures found on undisputed correrspondence/office notes signed by the
same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda and it is not at all tallying with signature on
warrants received from the Court of Judicial Magistrate First Class, Georai,
Ambajogai Police Station and other warrants in the file of Tahsildar Patoda.

This fact is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part on warrant cases of
this report apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 271 (Respondent No. 271)


Kacharu Kisan Bhandare

He applied for pension on 2.7.1990 on the basis of arrest warrant


issued against him and produced Xerox copy of warrant in file No.21/1357
Fasli Outward No. 310 dated 4 Behman 1357 Fasli equivalent to 4th December
1947. He produced Xerox copy of one warrant and from Xerox it appears that
the certified copy was issued on 12.8.1986 to one Raosaheb. He also filed
certified copy issued by Tahsildar, Patoda to one Sakharam Sadhu of
Rohatwadi on application dated 22.8.1986.

The Additional Collector, Beed had written letter to the Assistant


Secretary dated Nil stating that the warrant copy was sent to police station for
verification and in the report of the police station dated 19.9.1995 it is stated
that the original record is not available and therefore one Xerox copy of
warrant be sent for verification.

He had filed Writ Petition No. 4491/95 along with some other persons
( File No. 246 and 268). In the writ petition there was direction to decide his
claim within 9 months.

He filed affidavit dated 1.9.1996 stating that he took part in the


Hyderabad freedom movement and was helping congress camps and warrant
was issued for his arrest.

He also filed affidavit dated 16.10.1996 along with supporting affidavit


of Bhima Umaji Bangar dated 10.10.1996 Nivruti Fakira Dhakane dated 11-
10-1996.

In the affidavit of Bhima Umaji Bangar the name of Bhandare is added


in ink after the affidavit was typed and similar is the case of affidavit of
Nivruti Fakira Dhakane.

The Tahasildar had written to the Collector that list of 21 persons


whose name appears to be similar to the names informed to him by the
Collector.
- 757 -

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 14.2.1997 referred to the
fact that the original record is not available. The copy cannot be relied upon
and did not give any positive recommendation.

The High Power Committee considered the cases of Mahadev Aabaji


Naiknavare ( File No. 339), Kacharu Kisan Bhandare ( File No. 271 ) and
Mahadev Yashvant Aadagale ( File No. 287) together and stated that the copy
of warrant is produced, however Tahasildar has informed that the original
record is not available. Thereafter it is mentioned that the Tahasildar informed
that the copy of warrant is issued from his office as appears from the
endorsement on the reverse of the copy but the original record is not available.

Applicants have stated that they have worked in freedom movement


against Nizam Government and have filed affidavits of Nivruti Fakira
Dhakane, Bhima Umaji Bangar who were sentenced to two years
imprisonment, and affidavits of other freedom fighers and therefore the claim
be sanctioned. It is further stated that from the Marathi translation of the
warrant, it appears that the name of Kacharu Kisan Bhandare and other two
persons appears, but there is no surname mentioned in the copy of warrant.
The copy is obtained on payment of fees and the same is verified by the
Tahasildar but could not be verified in the absence of original record, which
the Tahasildar has submitted to the Collector office, Beed. Unless the warrant
is properly verified no decision can be taken and the matter be referred back to
the Collector with a request to get verification done from the Tahasildar.

In the further note it is stated that the warrant was sent for verification
and Tahasildar reported to he Collector that the warrant was issued from his
office and the copy is issued on payment of fees. But the same could not be
verified in the absence of original record. The Collector has also informed
that the warrant cannot be verified in the absence of original record, therefore
the decision of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti does not appear to be correct and the
request for grant of pension made by Mahadev s/o Aabaji, Kacharu s/o Kisan
Bhandare and Mahadev s/o Yashvant Aadaale be granted. Thereafter desk
Officer endorsed for rejection of claim.
- 758 -

This endorsement made up to the level of Member Secretary was also


signed by the Chairman. Further note was put up by the Chief Minister’s
office that a note has been put up that the power of taking decision be given to
the Zilla Gaurava Samiti and the Collector and the Chief Minister has agreed
with this and therefore the file be sent to the Collector. Thereafter there is a
list of persons whose claim are rejected, which include name of Kacharu,
mentioned the file No.552/97.

Thereafter further note is put up with reference to the petition filed in


the High Court and the fact that the warrant copy is produced by him and
although original record is not available but the basis of same warrant one
Ravsaheb Narayan Kokate has been sanctioned pension therefore these
person’s claims be sanctioned and in view of this note the Member Secretary
made endorsement dated 29.9.1999 that the claims of all the three persons be
sanctioned and accordingly pension sanctioned to all the three persons
including Kacharu Kisan Bhandare.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that warrant was not
issued against him and he has produced affidavits of two freedom fighters in
support of his claim.

Before the Commission he has filed written submission on affidavit


and has produced Xerox copy of warrant and copies of the affidavits of Bhima
Umaji Bangar and Nivruti Fakira Dhakne.

In the detailed affidavit he has referred to the warrant in file


No.21/1357 Fasli outward No.310 dated 4 Behman 1257 Fasli.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from three sources i.e.


Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8 warrants) and
Judicial Magistrate First Class Court (6 warrants) but the warrant, copy
whereof is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants.All the 29 warrants received are formed to be forged and not genuine
by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant
cases for the reasons given there under.
- 759 -

When the so called original warrants produced are found to be false


and forged how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not in existance,
can be believed to be genuine and true.

Thus the warrant not being genuine he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 760 -

File Case No. 273 (Respondent No.273)


Shri Sarjerao Madhavrao Bangar

Sarjerao Madhavrao Bangar applied for pension on 27.6.1990 on the


basis of arrest warrant issued against him in file No.21/2 Outward No.214
1357 Fasli dated Nil and produced Xerox copy of the warrant signed as true
copy by Special Executive Magistrate and this true copy itself is a copy of
copy signed by Senior Inspector Ambajogai Police Station. In his affidavit
dated 14.06 1990 he has made reference to the warrant in file No.21/2 issued
against him.

He filed further affidavit dated 15.1.1997 wherein number of incidents


are stated and names of number of freedom fighters are added.

The Collector, Beed wrote to the Police Inspector, Ambejogai


enclosing copy of warrant and list of 60 persons to verify warrant making
specific query. And Police Inspector replied on 3.10.1997 that out of list of 60
persons copy contains names of 27 persons including the name of Sarjerao
Mahada Bangar at Sr.No.9.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to the
above facts and stated that the warrant copy cannot be relied upon as the
original record is not available. However, Samiti is convinced about his
participation in the freedom movement and recommended his case.

The Member Secretary, however made a note that he does not agree
and one of the member P.V.Joshi stated that warrant is not properly verified.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 5.5.1998


that the warrant copy is not reliable and there is no compliance with
Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee however referred to the fact that original
warrant is available at Police Station and it is in connection with the
Hyderabad Freedom Movement and accepted the recommendation.
- 761 -

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he attended the


meeting wherein there was firing after which he ran away and thereafter
worked under the leadership of Namdevrao Khade. Warrant was issued
against him.

He has also filed affidavit before the Commission making assertion


that for 13 months he was absconding and referred to various incidents.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 762 -

File Case No. 274 (Respondent No. 274)


Manohar Genaji Bangar

He applied for pension on 26.12.1986 on the basis of arrest warrant


issued against him. He has produced Xerox copy of warrant in file No. 21/1/
1357 Fasli dated 15 Behman 1357 Fasli equivalent to 15th December 1947.

expediting the decision. He has produced certified copy of warrant issued to
one Manohar Genaji Bhayal on 16.10.1986 and from the Marathi translation it
appears that below the contents there is signature of Tahsildar and there is a
list of 9 persons including the name of Manohar Gena Bangar R/o Bhayal.

He filed affidavit dated 8.8.1989 in which he stated that he worked


underground along with Ashraji Sonaji Bangar and Mahadev Gena Bangar and

dated 5.11.1996. In both the stereotype affidavits name of Manohar Genaji
Bhayal is added in ink to the typed affidavits and the affidavits appears to be
carbon copies.

He has filed further affidavit dated 24.11.1998 adding the names of


other persons Sona Rama Jaybhay and Anna Eknath Telap, Sahebrao Ganapati
Sanap.

He filed another affidavit of Sampatlal Narayandas Kankeriya dated


22.12.1998. However, this person is not sentenced to two years imprisonment.

The Collector, Beed wrote to the Assistant Secretary on 2.3.1990 with


reference to pension case that the warrant copy was verified through Police
Sub Inspector Crime Branch Auragabad and the Crime Branch has informed
- 763 -

by No.1974 of 12.9.1998 that in the original record the name of Manohar


Genaji Bhayal does not appear and the letter of the Crime Branch is enclosed.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 20.2.1997 considered the
evidence of four affidavits and copy of warrant in filed No. 21 1357 Fasli and
the verification report of the Tahasildar and recommended that the copy be
verified from the Tehasildar office by sending in hand written Urdu copy.

In further meeting dated 26.2.1997 the case of applicant was


considered and the Zilla Gaurav Samiti refused to recommend his case stating
that original record of warrant is not available and copy is not trustworthy and
there are contradictory statement in the affidavits.

In meeting the High Power Committee referred to the letter of the


District Collector and the copy of warrant and stated that in view of the
verification report of Crime Branch, Auragabad stating that the name is not in
the warrant pension cannot be sanctioned and the claim be rejected.

Before the High Power Committee matter again came up for


consideration and it was stated in the note that the original record of warrant is
not available with the Tahasil Office and copy is not reliable. The Member
Secretary recorded that the application be rejected and the same is accepted by
the Chief Minister on 8.7.1997 and he was informed. Thereafter again the
matter was put up before the High Power Committee with note that there is
contradictory statement and there is no positive evidence and the claim was
again rejected on 20.5.1999.

Thereafter again note was put up before the High Power Committee
that he has filed affidavits of freedom fighters in support of his claim, warrant
of arrest was issued against him and in the warrant name of Manohar Gena
Bhayal is included. Thereafter the Member Secretary endorsement that the
application be granted and ultimately the same was granted on 28.9.1999.
- 764 -

He appeared before Mane Committee on 11.3.2003 and his statement


was recorded. He stated to have attended the meeting of Wamanrao Vaze and
gone to Tahasil Office Patoda to hoist flag with Namdevrao Khade. He has
not done any other work. Police arrested him and he was in custody for two
days. The police then released him and he ran away and stayed at Khardi
Camp for 10 to 12 days and he has filed affidavits of Ashruba Bangar , Eknath

Before the Commission he filed copy of warrant in file Outward


No.270 dated 15 Behman 1347 Fasli and the copy produced by him was issued
to Sampatlal Narayan Das of Patoda and before Commission he has produced
Xerox copy of copy issued to Sampatlal Narayan Das.

Thus the warrant not being genuine he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 765 -

File Case No.276 (Respondent No. 276)


Ashruba Vithoba Bawane

He applied for pension on 6.7.1990 but in the application there is no


reference to arrest warrant issued against him.

He filed affidavit dated 14.6.1990. The arrest warrant issued against


him in file No. 21/2/1357 Fasli Outward No. 214 He produced Xerox copy
of warrant signed by Executive Magistrate and it is itself a copy of copy issued
by Sub Inspector Ambajogai. He filed another affidavit dated 16.1.1997 in
which he has stated number of incidents and named number of freedom
fighters with whom he claimed to have worked.

The warrant copy was sent for verification to the Police Inspector by
the Collector enclosing the list of 60 persons and made specific query in the
letter contained. The Inspector reported on 3.10.1997 that the original is
available at the police station but the copy has not been issued on payment of
fees and there are 27 similar names in the list sent by Collector including the
name of Ashruba Vithoda which is similar to the name of the claimant.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 10.12.1997 observed


that warrant copy cannot be relied upon but the Zilla Gaurav Samiti is
convinced that he took part in the freedom movement and recommended his
case for sanction of pension to which the Member Secretary and Additional
Collector did not agree and one of the member P.V.Joshi made endorsement
that the warrant is not verified.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 14.7.1998


warrant copy is not reliable and there is no compliance of Government
Resolution.

The High Power Committee accepted the recommendation of the Zilla


Gaurav Samiti.
- 766 -

He appeared before the Mane Committee and his statement was


recorded. He stated that he came to stay at Domri camp for 4 to 5 days and
stated that he was aged 13 years, arrest warrant was issued against him.

He filed affidavit before the Commission but there is nothing worth


mentioning in the said affidavit.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 767 -

File Case No. 278 (Respondent No.278)


Shri Ginandeo Raoji Rakh

He applied for pension on 29.1.1999 claiming that he was underground


freedom fighter and warrant was issued against him in file No.CC/M/205 1357
Fasli Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfandar 1357 Fasli equivalent to 24th January
1948. The Xerox filed is itself a copy of true copy signed by Assistant
Superintendent Court, Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Gevrai bearing
endorsement dated 24.9.90 “verified that the Xerox copy is true copy of copy
issued by Tahasildar Patoda as on 17.9.1986”.

The warrant was sent for verification by the Collector, Beed to Civil
Judge Gevrai, who in reply on 2.11.1997 stated that original record was
available and copy was issued to one V.T.Chavan Advocate and name of
Dyandev Raoji Rakh is at Sr. No. 78.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 29.6.1999 observed that
the warrant copy is not reliable in the absence of original record yet the Samiti
is convinced that he has taken part in the freedom movement so
recommended.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 15.9.1999


that the copy of warrant is not reliable and there is no compliance of
Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee, however, accepted the recommendation


of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti referring to the verification report of Civil Court
Gevrai and sanctioned pension.

In his affidavit dated 30.11.2005 filed before Commission nothing is


stated about his role in freedom movement against Nizam Government.

In his statement before Mane Committee on 11.3.2003 he stated that he


collected breads from Wadzari and Domri and supplied to the activists coming
there and except this he did nothing and no warrant was issued against him.
- 768 -

The original warrant bearing file No. --- Outward No. 205 dated 24
Isfander 1357 Fasli (24.1.1948) is in the warrants received from the Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. The signature on this warrant is only like
initial and is entirely different from the signature found on undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda
and also is not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambajogai, Patoda Tahsil and even other warrants received
from Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from the three different


sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai (6 warrants) but
the warrant bearing File No. 205/1357 F Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander
1357 Fasli (24.1.1948), copy whereof is produced and relied upon in this case
is not amongst those 29 warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to
be forged and false by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this
report on warrant cases for reasons given there under how can copy of
warrant, original whereof is not in existence can be believed to be genuine and
true.

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 769 -

File Case No. 279 (Respondent No.279)


Manikrao Devrao Rakh (deceased) represented by wife Vanita.

He applied for pension on 7.10.1989 on the basis that warrant of arrest


was issued against him in file No. 101/1357 F outward No. 190 dated 14th
Bahman 1357 Fasli. He has produced only Xerox coy of warrant, which
shows that certified copy was issued to one Kisan Gunaji of Rohatwadi.

The warrant was sent for verification by the Collector to the Tahasidar
and Tahasidar replied on 24.12.1997 that along with warrant only two names
have been referred and out of them names of Vishwanath Bhagwant and
Bavane were included therein and in addition there are other names, however,
he has not stated name of Manik Devrao Rakh appearing in the warrant.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting held on 9.3.1999 referred to the
fact that name of the applicant is not in the warrant and original record is not
available. It is further stated that the copy has not been received from the
office of Tahasildar and original record is not available. The word not (Nahi)
deleted/scored out, and added is (ahe) yes, however, the sentence that there is
no recommendation is one which logically followed, the earlier contents.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Section Officer on 20.2.1999


that there is no name appeared in the warrant and original is also not available
and there is no compliance with Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee however accepted the recommendation


stating that Accountant (Abhilekhapal) in the Collector office has read the
Urdu warrant and stated that name of the applicant is in the warrant.
Thereafter the Under Secretary mentioned that warrant does not contain his
name as reported by the District Collector, but his pension was sanctioned
inspite of the note.

By the time notice was issued by the Mane Committee Manik Rakh
had expired and his wife appeared before the Committee as usual she has no
personal knowledge and the affidavit filed before the Commission is also not
on personal knowledge.
- 770 -

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.


101/1357 Onward No. 190 dated 14 Bahman 1357 Fasli (14.12.1947). The
alleged original warrant is in the file received from the Collector Beed
pertaining to Patoda Tahsil. The signature on this warrant is entirely different
from the signatures found on the undisputed correspondence and office notes
signed by the same Tahasildar and it also is not at all tallying with signature
on the warrants in the file of Police Station Ambajogai, in file of Zilla
Magistrate First Class Court, Gevrai and even on other warrants in file of
Patoda Tahsil. This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by expert
opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case. Thus the warrant not being
reliable he is not entitled to the Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve
to be and should be cancelled forthwith and the Commission recommends
accordingly.
- 771 -

File Case No. 280 (Respondent No. 280)


Ganapat (Deceased) represented by wife Muktabai

He applied for pension on 27.8.1990. In the application there is no


reference of warrant, however, copy of warrant bearing file No. 10/11
Outward No.213 dated 12 Behman 1357 Fasli i.e. 12th December 1947 is
produced.

On 3.9.1997 the Collector sent warrant for verification to the


Tahasildar Patoda. Along with it a list of 2 persons was enclosed.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 23.12.1997 referred to the
warrant copy and the fact that original record is not available but stated further
that his name is in the warrant (copy). The copy cannot be relied upon in the
absence of original record but the Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced about his
taking part in the freedom movement and recommended his case for sanction.
The Additional Collector and Member Secretary disagreed with the
recommendation.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary that the


warrant copy is not reliable and there is no compliance of Government
Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee, however, referred to the fact that the copy
is signed by the Executive Magistrate and name appears in the copy. The
Member Secretary has made a note that the District Collector has informed
that the number of warrants with Tahasildar but the same is not available. The
name of the person appears in the warrant and it is connected with the freedom
movement and moreover the Zilla Gaurav Samiti has recommended and
thereafter pension was sanctioned.

Before Mane Committee his wife appeared.

Before the Commission affidavit is filed but she has no personal


knowledge.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.10-11


Outward No. 213 dated 12 Bahman 1357 Fasli (12.12.1947) and File No. 107
Outward No. 598 dated 2 Mehir 1357 F (2.8.1948).

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from three sources i.e.


Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8 warrants) and
Judicial Magistrate First Class Court (6 warrants) but the warrants, copy
whereof are produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants.

All the 29 warrants received are found to be forged and not genuine by
the Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant cases
for the reasons given there under.

When the so called original warrants produced are found to be false


and forged how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not in existance,
can be believed to be genuine and true.

Thus the warrant not being genuine he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 281 (Respondent No.281)


Shri Sahebrao Pandurang Sanap

He applied for pension on 21.7.1990. He produced copy of warrant


bearing file No. 101/1357 Fasli Outward No.217 dated 2 Bahman 1357 Fasli
i.e. 2nd December 1947. The Xerox copy produced by him is signed as true
copy by Nazir cum COC , Nazir Court Patoda and bears seal of Magistrate.
However, it is, itself a copy of copy and Xerox with the endorsement that
“verified that the Xerox copy is true copy of copy issued by Tahasildar, Patoda
on 17.9.1986.”

In his affidavit dated 11.7.1990 he referred to the warrant issued


against him for the arrest and filed supporting affidavits of Waman Shivram
Sanap and Raghunath Lahanu Nagargoje.

On 3.9.1997 the Collector sent warrant for verification to the


Tahasildar Patoda , enclosing a list of 12 persons making specific inquiry and
in report dated 15.11.1997 the Tahasildar stated that Outward No.218 file No.
Nil dated 2 Bahman 1357 Fasli , original record is not available. The names of
the 12 persons mentioned in the list are there in the copy of warrant. The
original record has been submitted to the Collector Office. This verification
with reference to the copy only as the original was not in the office of
Tahasildar.

In his further affidavit dated 26.2.1999 he stated for the first time that
he was required to live away from his house for 9 to 10 months.

The Zilla Gaurav samiti in its meeting dated 9.3.1999 referred to the
fact that the name is appeared in the warrant copy and the original record is
submitted to the Collector. The copy cannot be relied on the absence of
original record. However, the Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced about his
taking part in the freedom movement and recommended his case.

The Additional Collector, wrote to the Section Officer dated nil that
there is no compliance of Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.
- 774 -

The High Power Committee accepted the recommendation.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he was aged 10 to


11 years. He attended the meeting of Wamanrao Vaze and cut shindi trees.
He was residing at Wadzari camp and he used to bring bhakari for the freedom
fighters and he is not aware that warrant was issued against him Sahebrao
Ganapati Sanap prepared his pension case.

Before the Commission he has filed affidavit mentioning further


details and making further improvements. He has however referred to the
warrant issued against him.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.Nil


Outward No. 217 dated 2 Bahman 1357 Fasli (2.12.1947). The alleged
original warrant is in the file received from the Tahasildar Patoda deposited
with the Collector office Beed. The signatures on this warrant is entirely
different from the signature found on the undisputed correspondence and
office notes signed by the same Tahasildar in the same file and it does not
tallying at all with the signature on warrants in the file of police station
Ambejogai and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Gevrai of the warrants
contained in file of Tahasildar Patoda. The Commission has also received
report of the handwriting expert to this effect. Thus the warrant not being
reliable he is not entitled to the Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve
to be and should be cancelled forthwith and the Commission recommends
accordingly.
- 775 -

File Case No. 282 (Respondent No.282)


Shri Bhaguji Maruti Tandale

He applied for pension on 24.10.1989 in which he has given reference


that the warrant was issued against him. He produced Xerox copy of warrant
in File No. 21/1 Outward No. 617 7 Thir 1357 F i.e. 7.11.1948 which is a copy
of true copy signed by Assistant Superintendent of Court Gevrai.

He has filed writ petition No.5555/96 and direction was given to


expedite his case and decide within three months.

The warrant was sent for verification by the District Collector to


Gevrai Court and the Civil Judge, Gevrai Court reported by letter dated
10.8.1998 that original record in file Nos. 201, 202, 203, 204, 205 and 517 of
1357 fasli is not available and inquiry be made from the Tahasildar whether
the warrant was issued.

The Tahasildar Patoda had written letter to the Section Officer on


18.1.1993 that warrant was issued from Tahasildar office and enclosed
translation of the warrant copy in which there is name of Tandale as Bhaguli
Maruti of Koregaon.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 29.9..1998 referred to the
report of Civil Judge and Tahasildar Patoda and stated that warrant copy
cannot be relied upon and no positive recommendation can be given.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 7.11.1998


that decision be taken at higher level.

Before the High Power Committee a note was put up that he has
produced copy of warrant on the basis of same warrant 19 persons from
Osmanabad district had been granted pension. The District Collector, Beed
had informed that original file is not available and therefore Zilla Gaurav
Samiti has not recommended the case. However, the warrant is issued from
the Tahasil office and therefore in the Court matter it is necessary to seek
further time.
- 776 -

Thereafter note was put up with reference to the petition No.5555/96


that although original record is not available, the Zilla Gaurav Samiti has not
recommended, the 19 persons from Osmanabad district have been granted
pension on the basis of the same warrant and so the same was sanctioned
accordingly.

He appeared before the Mane Committee and stated the he worked


under Ramling Swami and he was working from Kharda camp. He will
produce certified copy of warrant. He has produced Xerox copy of warrant.

Before the Commission he filed affidavit in which names of number of


freedom fighters are stated with reference to different incidents and stated that
the copy of warrant is obtained through advocate by payment of fees and there
is verification report on record.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.21/1


Outward No. 617 dated 7 Thir 1357 Fasli . The alleged original warrant is in
the file received from the Gevrai Court. The signatures on this warrant is only
like initial and is entirely different from the signature found on the undisputed
correspondence office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar. Patoda
and it also is not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambejogai, the warrants contained in file of Tahasildar Patoda
and other warrants received from the court of Judicial Magistrate First Class
Court, Georai.

This apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert opinion.
The general observations made in separate part of this report on warrant cases
apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 777 -

File Case No. 284 (Respondent No.284)


Shri Sona Ranga Waghmare

He applied for pension on 28.1.1981 on the basis of warrant issued


against him in file No. 21/1357 Fasli Outward No.217 dated 17 Behman 1357
Fasli i.e. 17th December 1947. He produced Xerox copy of warrant which is
not signed by anybody as true copy. He also relied on warrant in File No.
49/59 Outward 227 dated 27 Dai 1357 F 17 Behman 1357 F i.e. 17.12.1947.

The warrant copy was sent by the Collector, Beed to Police Inspector
Ambejogai as Xerox copy showed that the copy was issued from the police
station. The letter was accompanied by copy of warrant and list of 144 persons
and in reply dated 3.10.1997 Police Inspector stated that original was available
at Police Station and the name of Sona Ranga Dhade was in the copy.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to the
copy of warrant, as original is not available, copy cannot be relied upon, but
the Samiti is convinced that he had taken part in the freedom movement and
recommended his case. The Member Secretary and Additional Collector
differed with the recommendation and one of the member P.V.Joshi observed
that warrant was not verified.

The High Power Committee accepted the recommendation of the Zilla


Gaurav Samiti.

He appeared before the Mane Committee and referred to the warrant


issued against him.

Before the Commission also he produced true copy of the said warrant
and filed affidavit making some further improvement in the original affidavit.

The case depends on the reliability of warrants in file No. 21/57 F


Outward No. 217 dated 17 Bahman 1357 F (17.12.47).

The Commission received in all 29 warants from three sources i.e.


Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8 Warrants) and
Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai (6 warrants) but the warrant
- 778 -

bearing file No. 21/57 Outward No. 217 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli copy
where of is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to be not genuine by the
Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant cases for
reasons given there under how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not
in existence can be believed to be genuine and true. The report dated
3.10.1997 of Ambajogai Police Station addressed to the Collector Beed to the
effect that out of 47 names given in the list names of only 19 persons are in the
copy of warrant sent to him and other 28 persons are not there in the copy of
warrant further strengthen doubt about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus both the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the
Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 779 -

Case File No. 285 (Respondent No. 285)


Maruti Dada Wanve

Maruti s/o Dada Wanve applied for pension on 5.7.1990 on the basis of
arrest warrant issued against him in file No. 21/2 1357 Fasli Outward No.214
dated nil and relied on the Xerox copy of warrant.

In his affidavit dated 14.6.1990 he referred to the warrant issued


against him. He filed further affidavit dated 3.5.1997 referring to the names of
number of freedom fighters which were not referred earlier. He produced
affidavits of Nivruti Fakira Dhakane and Sona Rama Jaybhay dated 5.2.1997
and in both these affidavits there is blank space left for writing the name of
persons to whom the freedom fighters is supporting and it has been failed in
with blank space without inserting the names.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to the
warrant copy and similar name appeared in the warrant and report of Police
Inspector Ambejogai and further stated that copy is not reliable but the samiti
is convinced about his taking part in the freedom movement. The Additional
Collector and Member Secretary differed with the recommendation and one of
the member P.V.Joshi did not agree with the recommendation.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy secretary on 15.7.1998


that warrant copy is not reliable and there is no compliance of Government
Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

However, the High Power Committee accepted the recommendation


and verification report of warrant.

He appeared before Mane committee and stated that he does not know
Sona Rama Jaybhay and Nivruti Fakira Dhakane. He does not know what
documents are produced as one Jagdale prepared his application, took his
thumb impression. For about 13 months he was required to live away from his
house. He stated that he will produce certified copy within eight days which
has not been produced.
- 780 -

He filed detailed affidavit before the Commission and referred to the


warrant in file No. 21/2 issued against him.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 781 -

File Case No. 287 (Respondent No. 287)


Shri Mahadeo Yeshwanta Adagale

He applied for pension on 2.7.1990 on the basis of arrest warrant


issued against him and produced Xerox copy of warrant in file No.21/1357
Fasli Outward No.310 dated 4 Behman 1357 Fasli equivalent to 4th December
1947. He produced Xerox copy of one warrant and from the Xerox it appears
that the same was issued on 12.8.1986 to one Raosaheb. He also filed certified
copy issued by Tahsildar Patoda to one Sakharam Sadhu of Rohatwadi on
application dated 22.8.1986.

The Additional Collector, Beed had written letter to the Assistant


Secretary dated Nil stating that the warrant copy was sent to police station for
verification and the report of the police station dated 19.9.1995 to the District
Collector is to the effect that the original record is not available and therefore
one Xerox copy of warrant be sent for verification.

He had filed Writ Petition No. 4491/95 along with some other persons
( File No. 271 and 339). In the writ petition there was direction to decide his
claim within 9 months.

He filed affidavit dated 1.9.1996 stating that he took part in the


Hyderabad freedom movement and was helping congress camps and warrant
was issued for his arrest.

He also filed affidavit dated 16.10.1996 along with supporting affidavit


of Bhima Umaji Bangar dated 10.10.1996 Nivruti Fakira Dhakane dated 11-
10-1996.

In the affidavit of Bhima Umaji Bangar the name of Mahadeo


Yashwant is added in ink after the affidavit was typed and similar is the case
of affidavit of Nivruti Fakira Dhakane.

The Tahasildar had written to the Collector enclosing list of 21 persons


whose names appear to be similar to the names informed to him by the
Collector.
- 782 -

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti ( to be traced) in its meeting dated 14.2.1997


referred to the fact that the original record is not available. The copy cannot b
relied upon and did not give any positive recommendation.

The High Power Committee considered the cases of Mahadev Aabaji


Naiknavare ( File No. 339), Kacharu Kisan Bhandare ( File No. 271 ) and
Mahadev Yashvant Aadagale ( File No. 287) together and stated that the copy
of warrant is produced, however Tahasildar has informed that the original
record is not available. Thereafter it is mentioned that th Tahasildar has
informed that the copy of warrant is issued from his office as appears from the
endorsement on the reverse of the copy but original record is not available.

Applicants have stated that they have worked in the freedom


movement against Nizam Government and have filed affidavits of Nivruti
Fakira Dhakane and Bhima Umaji Bangar who were sentenced to two years
imprisonment and affidavits of other freedom fighers and therefore the claim
be sanctioned. It is further stated that from the Marathi translation of the
warrant, it appears that the name of Kacharu Kisan Bhandare and other two
persons appears but there is no surname mentioned in the copy of warrant.
The copy is obtained on payment of fees and the same is verified by the
Tahasildar but could not be verified in the absence of original record, which
has been submitted to the Collector office, Beed by the Tahasildar. Unless the
warrant is properly verified no decision can b taken and the matter be referred
back to the Collector with a request to get verification done from the
Tahasildar.

In the further note it is stated that the warrant was sent for verification
and Tahasildar reported to he Collector that the warrant was issued from his
office and the copy is issued on payment of fees. But the same could not be
verified in the absence of original record. The Collector has informed that the
warrant cannot be verified in the absence of original record, therefore the
decision of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti does not appear to b correct and the
request for grant of pension made by Mahadev Aabaji Kacharu, Kisan
Bhandare and Mahadev Yashvant Aadagle can not be granted. There after
Desk Officer endorsed for rejection of claim.
- 783 -

This endorsement made up to the level of Member Secretary was also


signed by the Chairman. Further note was put up by the Chief Minister’s
office that a note has been put up that the power of taking decision be given to
the Zilla Gaurav Samiti and the Collector and the Chief Minister has agreed
with this and therefore the file be sent to the Collector. Thereafter there is a
list of persons whose claim are rejected which include No. 484 name of
Kacharu, mentioned the file No.552/97.

Thereafter further note is put up with reference to the petition filed in


the High Court and the fact that the warrant copy is produced by him and
although original record is not available on he basis of same warrant one
Ravsaheb Narayan Kokate has been sanctioned pension therefore these
person’s claim be sanctioned and in view of this note the Member Secretary
made endorsement dated 20\9.9.1999 that the claims of all the three persons be
sanctioned and accordingly pension sanctioned to all the three persons
including Kacharu Kisan Bhandare,

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that warrant was not
issued against him and he has produced affidavits of two freedom fighters in
support of his claim.

Before the Commission he has filed written submission on affidavit


and has produced Xerox copy of warrant and copies of the affidavits of Bhima
Umaji Bangar and Nivruti Fakira Dhakne.

In the detailed affidavit he has referred to the warrant in file


No.21/1357 Fasli outward No. 310 dated 4 Behman 1257 Fasli.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from three sources i.e.


Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8 warrants) and
Judicial Magistrate First Class Court (6 warrants) but the warrant, copy
whereof is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants.
- 784 -

All the 29 warrants received are formed to be forged and not genuine
by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant
cases for the reasons given there under.

When the so called original warrants produced are found to be false


and forged how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not in existance,
can be believed to be genuine and true.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 785 -

File Case No. 289 (Respondent No. 289)


Shri. Shahurao Rakh

He applied for pension on 29.1.1991 claiming that Tahasildar Patoda


issued arrest warrant against him

He produced Xerox copy in file No. CCM 205/1357 Fasli Outward No.
209 dated 24 Isfandar 1357 Fasli i.e. 24th Janualry 1948.

The Xerox copy produced by him is not signed by anybody and


appears to be Xerox copy of copy signed by Special Executive Magistrate and
prepared from the true copy signed by the Assistant Superintendent Civil
Court Gevrai on which endorsement was made by Nazir cum COC Patoda on
24.9.1990 “verified that the Xerox copy is true copy of copy issued by
Tahasildar Patoda on 20.9.1990”.

He filed affidavit dated 23.2.1999 and affidavit of one Bhagwan Abaji


Rakh as well as affidavit of Ashruba Baaurav Rakh. However these persons
were not sentenced to imprisonment.

The Additional Collector, Beed, sent the Xerox copy for verification to
the Civil Court Gevrai and there are two letters of same Civil Judge
S.N.Shelke one dated 10.8.1998 and other dated 2.11.1997. In the letter dated
10.8.1998 it is stated that original record is not available and that too with
reference to arrest warrant Nos. 201 to 205 and 617 of 1357 fasli and in letter
dated 2.11.1997 it is stated that original warrant Outward No.205/1357 Fasli is
available in the Court and the copy produced was issued to V.T.Chavan
Advocate from the Court.

The Collector sent list of names to the civil Judge and the names which
are similar have been pointed out in the list attached to the report by the Civil
Judge in which the name appears of Shahu Anna Banjara and not as Shahurao
Abaji Rakh.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti considered his case in meeting held on (dated
nil) and observed that in the absence of original record copy of warrant cannot
- 786 -

be relied, however, the Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced about the part taken
in freedom movement by Shahurao Abaji and recommended his case.

The Additional Collector, wrote to the Section Officer on 15.9.1999


that the warrant copy is not reliable and the case is not fit for sanction.

The High Power Committee referred to he verification report of


warrant in another file that though the original is not available his name
appears in the warrant which means the copy of warrant which was available.
The High Power Committee accepted the recommendation. The Under
Secretary mentioned that the warrant is not trustworthy, yet pension was
sanctioned.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he was present in


the meeting of Wamanrao Vaze. He cut shindi trees and was involved in the
incidents of hoisting tri-colour flag on Tahasil Office, Ashti. He cannot say
what documents were produced, but he will produce certified copy of arrest
warrant, which has not been produced.

He filed detailed affidavit before the Commission referring to arrest


warrants issued against him and stating that he complied with the provisions of
Government Resolution dated 04.07.1995.

The original warrant bearing file No. --- Outward No. 205 dated 24
Isfander 1357 Fasli (24.1.1948) is in the warrants received from the Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. The signature on this warrant is only like
initial and is entirely different from the signature found on undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda
and also is not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambajogai, Patoda Tahsil and even other warrants received
from Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.
- 787 -

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from the three different


sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai (6 warrants) but
the warrant bearing File No. 205/1357 F Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander
1357 Fasli (24.1.1948), copy whereof is produced and relied upon in this case
is not amongst those 29 warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to
be forged and false by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this
report on warrant cases for reasons given there under how can copy of
warrant, original whereof is not in existence can be believed to be genuine and
true.

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 788 -

File Case No. 290 (Respondent No. 290)


Nana Hari Survase

He applied for pension on 27.7.1990 on the basis of arrest warrant


alleged to have been issued by the Tahasildar Patoda in file No. 21/2/1357
Fasli Outward No.214 dated Nil. He produced Xerox copy of warrant, which
was attested by the Special Executive Magistrate.

In his affidavit dated 14.6.1990 he referred to the said arrest warrant.


He filed further affidavit dated 22.1.1997 referring names of number of
freedom fighters and claiming to have worked with them. From the Xerox
copy of warrant produced by him, it is seen that it is true copy of copy issued
by Police Station Ambejogai.

The warrant was sent for verification by the Collector, Beed to Police
Station Ambejogai on 26.7.1997 enclosing a copy of warrant and list of 60
persons making a specific query. In reply dated 3.10.1997 Police Inspector,
Ambajogai stated that original record is available at the police station but the
copy is not obtained on payment of fees but similar name appears in the copy
as Nanahari Maratha of Mahajanwadi.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to the
copy of warrant and the similar name appearing therein and stated that the
copy is not issued on payment of fees and cannot be believed, yet, Zilla
Gaurav Samiti is convinced about his taking part in the freedom movement
and recommended grant of pension. The Additional Collector and Member
secretary however recorded that he does not agree with the recommendation
and one of the member P.v.Joshi remarked warrant is not duly verified.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 15.7.1998


that warrant copy is not reliable and there is no compliance of Government
Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee referred to the verification report of Police


Inspector and accepted recommendation.
- 789 -

He appeared before Mane Committee and referred to the incident of


meeting of Wamanrao Vaze which he claims to have been attended. He has
stated that he was not arrested as he ran away. The arrest warrant was issued
against him and agreed to produce certify copy of warrant which has not been
produced.

Before the Commission he has filed affidavit stating more or less the
same facts.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 790 -

File Case No. 292 (Respondent No. 292)


Ramdas Sona Bawne

He applied for pension on 28.1.1991 on the basis of arrest warrant


issued against him by Tahasildar Patoda in file No.21/1357 Fasli Outward
No.217 dated 17 Behman 1357 fasli i.e. 17th December 1948. In the
application he merely stated that he obstructed recovery of levy, cut shindi
trees and burnt octroi Karodgiri Naka.

In support, he has produced Xerox copy of warrant, which is prepared


from a copy attested by police Inspector, Ambajogai Police Station. In the
affidavit dated 2.11.1990 he relied on the copy of warrant. The warrant copy
was sent for verification by the Collector, Beed to Police Inspector,
Ambajogai enclosing list of 44 persons and Xerox copy of warrant. The Police
Inspector, Ambajogai submitted report on 3.10.1997 stating that the original
record is available in the police station but the copy is not issued on the
payment of fees, however, on checking the list of 44 persons 19 similar names
were found in the copy including the name of Ramdas Sonar, Maratha.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to the
copy of warrant and stated that the copy cannot be relied upon, however, the
Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced that he had taken part in the freedom
movement. However, Member Secretary and Additional Collector differed
and recorded accordingly and one Member P.V.Joshi remarked that warrant is
not verified properly.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Deputy Secretary on 15.7.1998


that there is no compliance of Government Resolution and warrant is not
reliable.

The High Power Committee, granted the claim on the basis that similar
name is found in the copy of warrant as Police Inspector, Ambajogai, verified
it and Zilla Gaurav Samiti recommends his case.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he attended the


meeting of Wamanrao Vaze. He had cut shindi trees and burnt naka, but, he
- 791 -

does not know in which village this was done. He was taken to police station
for one night and on the next day he apologized and he was released. The
police did not arrest him. No warrant was issued against him. He agreed to
produce certified copy of the warrant but did not produce.

In his affidavit filed before the Commission he has stated further


additional facts and has also stated that for 13 months he was required to live
away from his house.

The case depends on the reliability of warrants in File No. 21/57 F


Outward No. 217 dated 17 Bahman 1357 F (17.12.47).

The Commission received in all 29 warants from three sources i.e.


Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8 Warrants) and
Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai (6 warrants) but the warrant
bearing file No. 21/57 Outward No. 217 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli copy
where of is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to be not genuine by the
Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant cases for
reasons given there under how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not
in existence can be believed to be genuine and true. The report dated
3.10.1997 of Ambajogai Police Station addressed to the Collector Beed to the
effect that out of 47 names given in the list names of only 19 persons are in the
copy of warrant sent to him and other 28 persons are not there in the copy of
warrant further strengthen doubt about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 303 (Respondent No.303)


Shri Ramkishan Buvasaheb Nagargoje

freedom fighter’s pension on the basis of warrant issued against him by
Tahsildar Patoda in file No.21/1357 fasli Outward No. 204 dated 17 Isfandar
1357 Fasli i.e. 17th January 1948. However, in the application there is no
mention of warrant issued against him. He has placed Xerox copy of warrant
on record, which is not even attested.

The papers place on record reveal that on 3rd September 1997,


Collector, Beed sent a letter to the Civil Judge Junior Division, Gevrai to
verify the genuineness and correctness of the Xerox copy of warrant. The
civil Judge Junior Division Gevrai in his report dated 2.11. 1997 replied that
the original is available in the Court and the name of applicant Ramkishan
Buvasaheb Nagargoje is at Sr. No. 36.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 29.1.1999 did not
recommend the application of Ramkishan Nagargoje as there was no
compliance of the Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The Additional Collector, Beed in his report dated 20.3.1999 reported


that there is no compliance of the Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995 so it
was not a fit case for grant of freedom fighter’s pension.

The High Power Committee on 24.9.1999 granted the application


relying on the Xerox copy of the warrant and the report of the Civil Judge
Junior Division, Gevrai, without making reference to the recommendation of
the Zilla Gaurav Samiti & report of additional collector, Beed.

Ramkishan Nagargoje appeared before Mane Committee and stated


that he supplied breads only to the activists in the movement and he did
nothing more.

The case depend entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.21/57


Outward No. 204 dated 17 Isfandar 1357 Fasli (17.1.1948). The alleged
- 795 -

original warrant is in the file received from the Gevrai Court. The signatures

on warrants in the file of police station Ambajogai the warrants contained in
file of Tahasildar Patoda and even on other warrants received from Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. This is apparent to the naked eye and is
confirmed by the expert opinion. The general observations made in separate
part of this report on warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case. Thus
the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the Sanmanpatra and allied
benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled forthwith and the
Commission recommends accordingly.

name of Rama Wanwe was in the warrant. The Ambajogai police in its report
dated 3.10.1997 replied that original warrant is available with the police

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 recommended


the application of the Rama Wanve on the ground that the Samiti was

The Additional Collector, Beed in his report dated 15.7.1998 did not
recommend the application on the ground that there was no compliance of

him. He placed on record Xerox copy of warrant issued by Tahsildar Patoda
in file No.21/1 Outward No.217 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli i.e. 17th

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 recommended


the application as the Samiti was convinced about the participation of Laxman
Chaure in the freedom movement,though there was no proper verification of
the warrant. One of the member Mr. P.V. Joshi endorsed to the effect that
there was no verification of warrant.

The Additional Collector, Beed in his report dated 15.07.1998


observed that there was no compliance of Government Resolution dated
04.07.1995 so it was not a fit case for grant of pension.

The High Power Committee relying on the recommendation of the


Zilla Gaurav Samiti and the verification report of the Ambajogai Police
Station granted application on 02.04.1999.

Statement of Laxman Chaure was recorded before Mane Committee in


which he stated that at that time his age was 10 to 12 years and he attended
meeting of Wamanrao Vaze but ran away there from however, police arrested
him but he escaped on the pretext that he wants to wash his feet. He further

time that for 13, months he was required to live away from his house and has
referred to the copy of warrant in file No. 21/2 O.No. 227 dated 17 Behman
1357 F.

The case depends on the reliability of warrants in file No. No. 21/57 F

Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai (6 warrants) but the warrant
bearing file No. 21/57 Outward No. 217 dated 17 Behman 1357 Fasli copy
where of is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to be not genuine by the
Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant cases for
reasons given there under how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not
in existence can be believed to be genuine and true. The report dated
3.10.1997 of Ambajogai Police Station addressed to the Collector Beed to the
effect that out of 47 names given in the list names of only 19 persons are in the
copy of warrant sent to him and other 28 persons are not there in the copy of

application as the Samiti was convinced about participation of Raosaheb
Bangar in the freedom movement though there was no verification of warrant.
One of the member Mr. P.V. Joshi endorsed to the effect that there is no
verification of the Urdu warrant. The Additional Collector, Beed in his report
dated 15.07.1998 reported that there was no compliance of Govt. Resolution
dated 04.07.1995 so it was not a fit case for grant of freedom fighter pension.

The High Power Committee relying on the report of Ambajogai Police

of warrant produced on record. The Additional Collector, Beed in his report
dated 7.11.1998 reported that there was no compliance of Government
Resolution dated 4.7.1995, so it was not a fit case for grant of pension.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997


recommended the application of Sarjerao Sahebrao Bavne while endorsing
that the Samiti was convinced about the active participation of Sarjerao Bavne
in Hyderabad Freedom Struggle though the original record of the warrant is
not available for verification of the truthfulness and correctness of the copy of
the warrant placed on record. Mr. Pandurang Waman Joshi one of the member
of Zilla Gaurav Samiti endorsed to the effect that there is no verification of the
Urdu warrant.

The Additional Collector, Beed in his report dated 15.07.1998


submitted to the Deputy Secretary, GAD Freedom Fighter’s Cell, Mantralaya,
Mumbai reported that there was not compliance of the G.R. dated 04.07.1995
and original warrant was not available for verification of the genuineness and
truthfulness of the copy placed on record. However, he further added that the
final decision may be taken at Government level.
- 809 -

The High Power Committee in its decision dated 02.04.1999 granted


the application relying on the recommendation of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti and
verifiation of the copy of the warrant from Ambajogai Police by the Collector,
Beed.

On 17.03.2003 statement of Sarjerao Sahebrao Bavne was recorded


before Mane Committee wherein he stated about issuance of warrant against
him because of his activities against the Nizam Government.

Sarjerao Sahebrao Bavne filed his affidavit dated 05.12.2005 before


the Commission reiterating the facts in detail which he narrated before the
Mane Committee and in his affidavit filed before the Zilla Gaurav Samiti.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 recommended

there there was not original warrant available for verification of truthfulness
and genuineness of the copy of the warrant produced on record. Pandurang
Waman Joshi one of the Member of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti endorsed that
there is no verification of the warrant.

The Additional Collector, Beed in his report dated 15.07.1998


submitted to the Deputy Secretary, G.A.D. Freedom Fighters Cell,
Mantralaya, Mumbai observing that there is not compliance of the G.R. dated
04.07.1995 so it is not a fit case for grant of Freedom Fighters pension
however, added that final decidion may be taken at Government level on the

because of his activities against Nizam Government.

Sukhdeo filed his affidavit dated 05.12.2005 before the Commission


reiterating the facts in detail about his participation in the Hyderabad Freedom
Movement and issuance of warrant against him.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.7/1357 F Outward No. 407 dated 2 Behman 1357 F (2.12.1947). The
alleged original warrant is in the file received from the Ambejogai Police
Station. The signature on this warrant is entirely different from the signatures
found on the undisputed correspondence/office notes signed by the same
Tahasildar of Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the
warrants received from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai and
warrant contained in file of Tahsildar Patoda.

It does not tally even with other warrants received from Ambajogai
Police Station. This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by expert
opinion. The general observations made in the separate part on warrant cases
of this report apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the

No. 205 of 1357 Fasli vide outward No. 209 dated 24th Isfandar 1357 Fasli i.e.
24th January 1948. Because the said application was not disposed of within a

application and some other additional information is added in that readymade
affidavit with pen.

Copy of the warrant on the basis of which Pandurang Maruti Khande


claimed freedom fighter’s pension does not find place in the file.

Papers on record reveal that on 22.12.1997 Collector, Beed addressed


letter to Civil Judge Jr. Dn. Georai for verification of warrant and thereafter
on 16.04.1998 sent a reminder for giving report in the matter. From the Xerox
copy of letter Dt/- 21.01.1997 addressed to the Collector by Civil Judge
(Jr.Dn) Georai it appears that he verified Urdu warrant No. 201, 203, 204, 205,
617 and report to that effect is appended to the said letter.

The record contains Xerox copy of letter dated 21.11.1997 sent to the

Chavan Advocate and a list containing 175 names mentioned in the said
- 813 -

warrant is being appended with the letter. Xerox copy of the said list is not on
record of this file.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 30.07.1998 did not
recommend the case on the ground that in the verification report of Civil
Judge ,Georai he has stated that the warrant available with him does not bear
file number and outward number. However, the Zilla Gaurav Samiti left it to
the Government to take final decision in the matter.

The Additional Collector, Beed in its report dated 13.08.1998


addressed to the Deputy Secretary GAD Freedom Fighter’s Cell, Mantralaya,
Mumbai stated that the Zilla Gaurav Samiti and he himself are not satisfied
about genuineness and truthfulness of the warrant produced by Pandurang
Marute Khande, as it does not bear file and outward number and therefore, he
feels that it is not a fit case for grant of pension However, further added to
take decision at Government level.

The High Power Committee granted application on 02.04.1999 relying


on the verification report of Civil Judge Jr.Dn. Georai in respect of the copy of
the warrant produced by Pandurang Maruti Khande.

Statement of Pandurang Maruti Khande was recorded on 19.03.2003

given all the details which he missed while deposing before Mane Committee.

The original warrant bearing file No. --- Outward No. 205 dated 24
Isfander 1357 Fasli (24.1.1948) is in the warrants received from the Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. The signature on this warrant is only like
initial and is entirely different from the signature found on undisputed
- 814 -

correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda


and also is not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambajogai, Patoda Tahsil and even other warrants received
from Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from the three different


sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai (6 warrants) but
the warrant bearing File No. 205/1357 F Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander
1357 Fasli (24.1.1948), copy whereof is produced and relied upon in this case
is not amongst those 29 warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to
be forged and false by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this
report on warrant cases for reasons given there under how can copy of
warrant, original whereof is not in existence can be believed to be genuine and
true.

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 326 (Respondent No.326)


Shri Ramrao Ashruba Bangar

On 27.06.1990 Ramrao Ashruba Bangar filed present application for


getting pension without giving any details of his participation in struggle
movement against Nizam. He further placed on record Xerox copy of the
warrant issued by Tahsildar Patoda in File No. 21/2 bearing Outward No. 214.
The said Xerox bears endorsement of Executive Magistrate as he has attested
it. He has also placed on record his own affidavit dated 16.01.1997 which is a
readymade affidavit wherein his name and date of application are added with
ink.

The record contains Xerox copy of letter Dt/- 26.08.1997 sent by


Collector, Beed to Police Inspector of the Ambajogai Police station along-with
list of 60 persons for verification of the warrant as copy of the warrant is
issued from Ambajogai Police Station. From the Xerox copy of the reply
dated 3.10.1997 of PoliceInspector of Ambajogai Police Station addressed to
the Collector, Beed, it appears that the name of Ramrao Ashruba Wanjara is
there in the warrant.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 resolved that
the Samiti was convinced about participation of Ramrao Bangar in the
Hyderabad struggle movement, though the original record of the warrant was
not available for verification. The Member Secretary endorsed his disapproval
with the opinion of the Committee. P.V.Joshi one of the member also
endorsed that there is no verification of the warrant.

The Additional Collector, Beed in his letter dated 15.7.1998 sent to the
Deputy Secretary, GAD endorsed that because the warrant is not verified from
the original and certified copy thereof is not placed on record. It is not a fit
case to grant pension, however, he left it to the discretion of the government
to take final decision in the matter.

The High Power Committee granted application on 27.9.1999 by


relying on the report of Police Inspector, Police Station, Ambajogai ,
- 819 -

submitted to the Collector, Beed on his querry for verification of the warrant
and recommendation of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti.

In his statement dated 29.3.2003 recorded before the Mane Committee


Ramrao Ashruba Bangar stated that he does not know whether warrant was
issued against him or not.

In his affidavit dated 3.12.2005 presented to the Commission he has


accounted for his role in the struggle movement and issuance of warrant
against him and the requirement of Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the

pension and because he did not get any relief he filed Writ petition No.
4361/1996 in the Bombay High Court, bench Aurangabad wherein directions
were given on 30.07.1997 for disposing of his application within six months.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 24.04.1998 did not
recommend the application as it had doubt about genueiness and truthfulness
of the warrant copy whereof was relied upon by Krishnanath Mule in support
of his claim.

From the record it apears that on 09.03.1998 additional Collector, Beed


addressed letter to the Civil Judge Jr. Dn. Georai to verify the Urdu warrant
produced by Krishnanath Someshwar Mule Petitioner in Writ Petition
No.4361/1996. The Xerox copy of the reply dated 26.03.1998 sent by Civil
Judge Jr. Dn. Georai to the Collector, Beed in reply to his letter Dt/-16.0.1998
is placed on record but contents thereof do not speak about verification of
truthfulness and correctness of the said warrant. The letter dated 02.11.1997
addressed by Civil Judge Jr. Dn. Georai to the Collector, Beed in reply to his
letter Dt/- 27.08.1997 appears in the file wherein he has informed that Urdu
warrant No. 205 of 1357 Fasli is issued on 24 Ispindar 1357 Fasli and certified
copy thereof was issued to ShriV.T.Chavan Advocate on his application No.
538 of 1990. He further added that in the said original warrant Krishnanath
Someshwar caste Bramhan R/o Madalmohi Tq. Georai is mentioned.

The High Power Committee granted application on 15.09.1998 and


accordingly Government Resolution dated 07.10.1998 was issued granting
pension to Krishnanath Mule from 11.08.1995.

Dissatisfied with the said order of grant of Freedom Fighter pension


from 11.08.1995 Krishnanath Someshwar Mule filed another Writ petition
bearing No.2045 of 1999 claiming Freedom Fighter’s pension from
11.09.1989 i.e. from the date on which he had firstly moved the Government
for grant of pension. The said Writ Petition was allowed on 18.10.1999 and
relief claimed was given to him. The Government accordingly complied with
the said order.

The original warrant bearing file No. --- Outward No. 205 dated 24
Isfander 1357 Fasli (24.1.1948) is in the warrants received from the Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. The signature on this warrant is only like

File Case No. 339 (Respondent No.339)


Shri Mahadeo Abaji Naiknaware

He applied for pension on 2.7.1990 on the basis of arrest warrant


issued against him and produced Xerox copy of warrant in file No.21/1357
Fasli Outward No.310 dated 4 Behman 1357 Fasli equivalent to 4th December
1947. He produced Xerox copy of one warrant and from Xerox it appears that
the certified copy was issued on 12.8.1986 to one Ravsaheb. He also filed
certified copy issued by Tahsildar Patoda to one Sakharam Sadhu of
Rohatwadi on application dated 22.8.1986.

The District Collector, Beed had written letter to the Assistant


Secretary dated Nil stating that the warrant copy was sent to police station for
verification and the report of the police station dated 19.9.1995 to the District
Collector is to the effect that the original record is not available and therefore
one Xerox copy of warrant be sent for verification.

He had filed Writ Petition No. 4491/95 along with some other persons
( File No. 246 and 268). In the writ petition there was direction to decide his
claim within 9 months.

He filed affidavit dated 1.9.1996 stating that he took part in the


Hyderabad freedom movement and was helping congress camps and warrant
was issued for his arrest.

He also filed affidavit dated 16.10.1996 along with supporting affidavit


of Bhima Umaji Bangar dated 10.10.1996 Nivruti Fakira Dhakane dated 11-
10-1996.

In the affidavit of Bhima Umaji Bangar the name of Mahadeo Abaji


Naiknaware is added in ink after the affidavit was typed and similar is the case
of affidavit of Nivruti Fakira Dhakne.

The Tahasildar had written to the Collector that list of 21 persons


whose name appears to be similar to the names informed to him by the
Collector.
- 824 -

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 14.2.1997 referred to the
fact that the original Xerox record is not available. The copy cannot be relied
upon and did not give any positive recommendation.

The High Power Committee considered the cases of Mahadev Aabaji


Naiknavare ( File No. 339 ), Kacharu Kisan Bhandare ( File No. 271 ) and
Mahadev Yashvant Aadagale ( File No. 287 ) together and stated that the copy
of warrant is produced, however Tahasildar has informed that the original
record is not available. Thereafter it is mentioned that the Tahasildar has
informed that the copy of warrant is issued from his office as appears from the
endorsement on the reverse of the copy but original record is not available.

Applicants have stated that they have worked under freedom


movement against Nizam Government and have filed affidavits of Nivruti
Fakira Dhakne, Bhima Umaji Bangar who were sentenced to two years
imprisonment and affidavits of other freedom fighers and therefore the claim
be sanctioned. It is further stated that from the Marathi translation of the
warrant it appears that the name of Kacharu Kisan Bhandare and other two
persons appears but there is no surname mentioned in the copy of warrant.
The copy is obtained on payment of fees and the same verified by the
Tahasildar but could not be verified it in the absence of original record. It has
been submitted to the Collector office, Beed by the Tahasildar. Unless the
warrant is properly verified no decision can be taken and the matter be
referred back to the Collector with a request to get verification done from the
Tahasildar.

In the further note it is stated that the warrant was sent for verification
and Tahasildar reported to the Collector that the warrant was issued from his
office and the copy is issued on payment of fees. But the same could not be
verified in the absence of original record. The Collector has informed that the
warrant cannot be verified in the absence of original record. Therefore the
decision of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti does not appear to be correct and the
request for grant of pension made by Mahadev s/o Aabaji, Kacharu s/o Kisan
Bhandare and Mahadev s/o Yashvant Aadaale may be granted. Thereafter
Desk Officer endorsed for rejection of claim.
- 825 -

This endorsement made up to the level of Member Secretary was also


signed by the Chairman. Further note was put up by the Chief Minister’s
office that a note has been put up that the power of taking decision be given to
the Zilla Gaurava Samiti and the Collector and the Chief Minister has agreed
with this and therefore the file be sent to the Collector. Thereafter there is a
list of persons whose claim are rejected which include No. 484 name of
Kacharu, mentioned the file No.552/97.

Thereafter further note is put up with reference to the petition filed in


the High Court and the fact that the warrant copy is produced by him and
although original record is not available on he basis of same warrant one
Ravsaheb Narayan Kokate has been sanctioned pension therefore these
person’s claim be sanctioned and in view of this note the Member Secretary
made endorsement dated 20\9.9.1999 that the claims of all the three persons be
sanctioned and accordingly pension sanctioned to all the three persons
including Kacharu Kisan Bhandare,

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that warrant was not
issued against him and he has produced affidavits of two freedom fighters in
support of his claim.

Before the Commission he has filed written submission on affidavit


and has produced Xerox copy of warrant and copies of the affidavits of Bhima
Umaji Bangar and Nivruti Fakira Dhakne.

In the detailed affidavit he has referred to the warrant in file


No.21/1357 Fasli outward No.310 dated 4 Behman 1257 Fasli.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from three sources i.e.


Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8 warrants) and
Judicial Magistrate First Class Court (6 warrants) but the warrant, copy
whereof is produced and relied upon in this case is not amongst those 29
warrants.
- 826 -

All the 29 warrants received are formed to be forged and not genuine
by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this report on warrant
cases for the reasons given thereunder.

When the so called original warrants produced are found to be false


and forged how can copy of a warrant, original whereof is not in existance,
can be believed to be genuine and true.

Thus the warrant not being genuine he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 827 -

File Case No. 341 (Respondent No.341)


Shri Babasaheb Chatrabhuj Gaikwad

Babasaheb Chatrabhuj Gaikwad applied for grant of freedom fighter


pension on 3,4,1990 on the basis of arrest warrant issued against him. He
produced Xerox copy of warrant attested by Principal Arts College. It shows
that the warrant was dated 2 Behman 1357 fasli i.e. 2nd December 1947 in file
No. 7 Outward No. 407 without attestation.

He filed affidavit dated 5.1.1998 stating that arrest warrant was issued
against him and he was absconding.

It appears that the District Collector sent letter to the Police


Superintendent of Beed for verification of warrant as Xerox copy shows that
the same was prepared as true copy signed by Police Inspector, Ambajogai.
The Police Superintendent reported on 3.11.1997 that the name of certain
persons appear in the warrant, the original record is not available at the Police
Station and copy does not appear to have been issued on charging necessary
fees but in the copy the name of Babasaheb Chatrabhuj Gaikwad appears.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 stated that the
copy cannot be relied upon in the absence of original record but the copy
shows that it is in respect of freedom movement against Nizam and
recommended his case for grant of pension. The Member Secretary and
Additional Collector differed and one of the Member P.V.Joshi recorded his
objection stating that the warrant was not verified.

The Additional Collector also wrote to the Deputy Secretary on


15.7.1998 that the warrant is not properly verified in the absence of original
record and there is no compliance of 4.7.1995 Government Resolution.

The High Power Committee, however, referred to the verification


report of Police Superintendent, Beed and recommendation of the Zilla
Gaurav Samiti and santioned the pension on 24.10.1999.

The Under Secretary however noted that the warrant is not verified.
- 828 -

He appeared before Mane Committee but did not refer to the warrant
issued against him by the Court or by the Police. He further stated that he has
produced Xerox copy of warrant issued against him.

Before the Commission he filed application for calling the record from
the Patoda Tahasildar in respect of warrant and also made reference of warrant
in his affidavit.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.7/1357 F Outward No. 407 dated 2 Behman 1357 F (2.12.1947). The
alleged original warrant is in the file received from the Ambejogai Police
Station. The signature on this warrant is entirely different from the signatures
found on the undisputed correspondence/office notes signed by the same
Tahasildar of Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the
warrants received from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai and
warrant contained in file of Tahsildar Patoda.

It does not tally even with other warrants received from Ambajogai
Police Station. This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by expert
opinion. The general observations made in the separate part on warrant cases
of this report apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 829 -

File Case No. 342 (Respondent No.342)


Shri Bhaurao Seetaram Kapale

Bhaurao Seetaram Kapale filed application for grant of freedom fighter


pension on 9.7.1997. It appears that he had also filed application on
30.11.1989 in which he made reference to the arrest warrant issued against
him.

He filed affidavit dated 11.4.1997 wherein he made reference to the


Writ Petition filed by him and warrant filed against him. Writ Petition No.
3340/94 and warrant No. 205 stating that Smt. Bale, Smt. Madalapure,
Kacharu Narayan, Dinkarrao Dhondiba etc. whose names appeared in the
warrant had already got pension. He produced Xerox copy of arrest warrant
signed by Notary. The Xerox copy shows that it is self prepared. It is
prepared from a true copy (from certified copy).

He filed another affidvit dated 16.5.1998 which was like a reminder.

The District Collector, Beed, wrote to the Civil Judge, Ashti on


16.9.1997 for verification of the warrant. On 8.5.1995 Collector Beed gave
list of 4 persons for verification of the warrant to the Civil Judge. The Civil
Judge wrote letter dated 21.11.1997to the District Collector stating that the
verification was done from the copy sent and three names appeared similar to
the names mentioned by the Collector. However, there was no referene to the
name of Bhaurao Seetaram Kapale.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 29.9.1998 referred to the
report of Ashti Court regarding verification and stated that name of Prabhakar
Sitaram Sonar appears in warrant and original record is not available. The
copy is not reliable and expressed inability to recommend his case.

The Additional Collector wrote to the Section Officer on 29.10.1998,


as warrant is not reliable and there is no origina record available and there is
no compliance of Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995.

The High Power Committee considered his case. And note put up to
the High Power Committee was to the effect that the copy of warrant produced
by him was considered in respect of persons in Osmanabad district. And in
- 830 -

that file the copy was signed by the District Collector and the name of the
person appeared in the said copy and santioned pension.

The Under Secretary, however, put up that the original record is not
available.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he is resident of


Sevali district Jalna and arrest warrant was issued against him.

The original warrant bearing file No. --- Outward No. 205 dated 24
Isfander 1357 Fasli (24.1.1948) is in the warrants received from the Judicial
Magistrate First Class Court, Georai. The signature on this warrant is only like
initial and is entirely different from the signature found on undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda
and also is not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambajogai, Patoda Tahsil and even other warrants received
from Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The Commission received in all 29 warrants from the three different


sources i.e. Patoda Tahsil (15 warrants), Ambajogai Police Station (8
warrants) and Judicial Magistrate First Class Court, Georai (6 warrants) but
the warrant bearing File No. 205/1357 F Outward No. 209 dated 24 Isfander
1357 Fasli (24.1.1948), copy whereof is produced and relied upon in this case
is not amongst those 29 warrants. When all 29 warrants received are found to
be forged and false by the Commission as discussed in separate part of this
report on warrant cases for reasons given there under how can copy of
warrant, original whereof is not in existence can be believed to be genuine and
true.

Thus the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 343 (Respondent No.343)


Shri Bansilal Bhaurao Bhutada (deceased) represented by wife Shrimati
Sarubai Bansilal Bhutada

Bansilal Bhaurao Bhutada applied for grant of freedom fighter pension


on the basis of arrest warrant issued against him by Tahasildar Patoda in file
No.21/1 1357 fasli Outward No.617 dated 17 Thir 1357 Fasli dated
17.5.1948. He produced Xerox copy of warrant which is not attested by any
authority but shows that it is prepared from true copy signed by Assistant
Superintendent, Civil Court, Gevrai.

He filed writ petition No. 3705/96 wherein direction was given to


decide the case within three months.

The District Collector wrote letter to the Civil Judge, Gevrai with
reference to the different writ petitions including the writ petition of Bansilal
Bhaurao Bhutada. The Civil Judge, Gevrai wrote on 21.11.199 that the
original record of warrant Ourward No.617 is available in which there is name
of Bansilal Bhaurao Bhutada.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 8.10.1998 stated that as
per the report of Civil Judge, the original record is not available in the Court,
the copy is not reliable and the Zilla Gaurav Samiti is unable to recommend
his case.

The High Power Committee considered the report of Civil Judge,


Gevrai stating that name of Bansilal Bhaurao Bhutada is in the warrant copy
and the facts that on the basis of said warrant 19 persons from the Osmanabad
district were santioned pension and pension was santioned on 2.4.1999.

His wife appeared before Mane Committee. She had no personal


knowledge.

Similar affidavit filed before the Commission by her is also based on


hears say and not on personal knowledge.
- 832 -

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file No.21/1


Outward No. 617 dated 17 Thir 1357 Fasli . The alleged original warrant is in
the file received from the Gevrai Court. The signatures on this warrant is only
like initial and is entirely different from the signature found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar, Patoda
and it also not at all tallying with the signature on warrants in the file of
police station Ambejogai the warrants contained in file of Tahasildar Patoda
and other warrants received from Judicial Magistrate First Class Court,
Georai.

This apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert opinion.
The general observations made in separate part of this report on warrant cases
apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

File Case No. 345 (Respondent No.345)


Shri Bhaginath Vithal Gaikwad (deceased) represented by wife Shrimati
Shantabai Bhaginath Gaikwad

Bhaginath Vithal Gaikwad applied for freedom fighters pension on


9.11.1998 on the basis of warrant of arrest issued against him by Tahasildar
Patoda in file No.201, Outward No. 323 dated 14 Isfindar 1357 fasli i.e. 14
January 1948 and produced Xerox copy of copy issued by Tahasildar Patoda
to Ashruba Bensur. Since the xecox copy shows that it was issued by the
Police Station, Ambajogai, the District Collector wrote to the Superintendent
for verification of warrant and the Police Superintendent replied to the
Collector that the original record is not available with the police station. There
is no record of payment of fees made for securing copy however there is name
of one Bhaginath s/o Vithal Dhed, it cannot be said that he is the same person,
who has applied for pension.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 referred to the
report of police superintendent stating that there is his name in the warrant and
relying on the copy of warrant stated that the warrant copy is issued in absence
of original record, however, the Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced that he has
taken part in freedom movement. The Member Secretary and Additional
Collector, however, noted that he does not agree and one of the Member
P.V.Joshi also observed that warrant is not properly verified.

The High Power Committee relied on the copy of warrant and


verification report and sanctioned pension.

The Under Secretary, however, mentioned that warrant is not verified.

Before the Mane Committee his wife appeared. She has no personal
knowledge for making statement.

Before the Commission she applied for calling original record of


warrant and filed affidavit producing Xerox copy. She has no personal
knowledge.
- 834 -

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.201/57 Outward No. 323 dated 14 Isfandar 1357 Fasli (14.1.1948). The
alleged original warrant is in the file received from the Collector Beed
pertaining to Patoda Tahsil. The signature on this warrant is entirely different
from the signatures found on the undisputed correspondence/office notes
signed by the same Tahasildar of Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with
signature on the warrants received from the Judicial Magistrate First Class
Court Georai, Ambajogai Police Station and other warrants contained in file of
Tahsildar Patoda.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by expert opinion.


The general observation made in the separate part of this report on warrant
cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 835 -

File Case No. 348 (Respondent No.348)


Shri Sukhdeo Daula Shinde

Sukhdeo Daula Shinde filed application for grant of pension dated


06.07.1990 on the basis of arrest warrant issued by Tahsildar Patoda against
him in file No. 21/2/1357 Fasli Outward No. 214 dated Nil.

In his affidavit dated 15.01.1997 he has made reference to the warrant


issued against him by Tahsildar Patoda and copy was attested by Executive
Magistrate. It is however copy of copy issued by Police Inspector,
Ambajogai.

While seeking verification of the warrant Collector enclosed list of 60


persons making specific queries to Police Inspector, Ambajogai and in his
report Dt/- 03-10-1997 he reported that original is available in the police
station. The copy does not appear to have been issued on payment of fees and
name of Sukhdeo Daula Maratha is seen in the copy.

Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting Dt/- 16.12.1997 stated that the copy
could not be relied upon in view of the report and non-availibility of original
record, however, Zilla Gaurav Samiti is convinced about his participation in
freedom movement. The Member Secretary and Additional Collector recorded
that he does not agree with the recommendation and one member P.V. Joshi
also endorsed that there is no verification of warrant.

In his letter Dt;- 15-07-1998 addressed to the Deputy Secretary


Additional Collector, Beed wrote that the warrant copy is not reliable but
therein appears similar name. He has not complied 04.07.1995 Government
Resolution.

High Power Committee on 4.10.99 by accepting report of Ambajogai


Police and recommendation of Zilla Gaurav Samiti sanctioned the pension.

He appeared before Mane Committee and stated that he was living


away from his house for 6 to 9 months. He does not know what documents are
- 836 -

filed with application. He also does not know whether the warrant was issued
against him.

In the affidavit filed before the Commission he has stated that for 13
months he was required to live away from his house.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrant in file


No.21/2/57 F Outward No. 214. The alleged original warrant is in the file
received from the Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is
entirely different from the signatures found on the undisputed
correspondence/office notes signed by the same person i.e. Tahasildar of
Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with signature on the warrants received
from the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court Georai, warrant contained in file
of Tahsildar Patoda and other warrants received from Ambajogai Police
Station.

This is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by the expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part of this report on
warrant cases apply Mutatis Mutandis to this case.

The report dated 3.10.1997 of Police Inspector, Ambajogai to the


effect that out of 60 names given in the list names of only 27 persons are and
rest 33 are not in the copy of warrant sent to him further strengthen doubt
about genuineness of the warrant.

Thus the warrant not being reliable he is not entitled to the


Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.
- 837 -

File Case No. 353 (Respondent No.353)


Sonba Tukarm Panchal (Deceased) represented by wife Shrimati
Subhadrabai Sonba Panchal

Sonba Tukarm Panchal filed application on 9.11.1989 for freedom


fighter pension on the ground that Tahasildar Patoda issued arrest warrant in
confidential file No.7/1357 fasli Outward No.407 dated 2 Behman 1357 Fasli
equivalent to 2nd December 1947 and warrant issued in confidential file
No.201 Outward No. 323 dated 14 Isfander 1357 fasli i.e. 14.01.1948 Xerox
copy of the warrant dated 2 Behman 1357 fasli is bearing the seal of Executive
Magistrate.

Thereafter he submitted another application dated 2.4.1990 giving


therein the fact about issuance of warrants against him and appended copy of
the warrant dated 2 Behman 1357 fasli to the said application.

The record contains Xerox copy of letter dated 4.11.1997 sent by


Superintendent of Police, Beed to the Collector, Beed in response to his letters
about verification of Urdu warrant. In the said report he has informed that
name of Sonba Tukarm Panchal appears in the warrant.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in its meeting dated 16.12.1997 recommended


the application as the Samiti was convinced about the participation of Sonba
Tukarm Panchal in the freedom struggle movement against Nizam, although
the original copy of warrants were not available for the verification of Xerox
copies placed on record. In absence of original record they could not satisfy
themselves about the genuineness and correctness of the original warrant. The
Member Secretary and Additional Collector endorsed about his disagreement
whereas Pandurang Waman Joshi one of the members endorsed about non
verification of the Urdu warrant.

The Additional Collector, Beed in his report dated 15.7.1998 addressed


to the Deputy Secretary General Administration Department reported that
there is no compliance of the Government Resolution dated 4.7.1995 on the
part of the applicant and therefore it is not a fit case for grant of freedom
- 838 -

fighter pension. However, further added to take final decision at the


Government level.

Sonba Tukarm Panchal died on 20.7.1992 so Subhadrabai his wife


appeared before Mane Committee on 25.2.2003 and stated on oath that her
husband did not leave the village at any time and she recollects the days of
police action. She categorically added that she is well aware of the fact that
her husband did not take part in the freedom movement of Hyderabad.

The case depends entirely on the reliability of warrants in File No.


7/1357 F Outward No. 407 dated 2 Behman 1357 F and in file No.201/57
Outward No. 323 dated 14 Isfander 1357 Fasli (14.1.1948). The alleged
original warrant dated 2 Behman 1357 F is in the file received from the
Ambejogai Police Station. The signature on this warrant is entirely different
from the signatures found on the undisputed correspondence/office notes
signed by the same Tahasildar of Patoda and it also is not at all tallying with
signature on the warrants received from the Judicial Magistrate First Class
Court Georai and warrant contained in file of Tahsildar Patoda and other
warrants received from Ambajogai Police Station. The alleged original
warrant dated 14 Isfander 1357 F is in the file received from collector Beed
pertaining to Patoda Tahsil and signature thereon is entirely different from the
signatures found on undisputed correrspondence/office notes signed by the
same person i.e. Tahsildar Patoda and it is not at all tallying with signature on
warrants received from the Court of Judicial Magistrate First Class, Georai,
Ambajogai Police Station and other warrants in the file of Tahsildar Patoda.

This fact is apparent to the naked eye and is confirmed by expert


opinion. The general observations made in separate part on warrant cases of
this report apply MutatisMutandis to this case.

Thus both the warrants not being reliable he is not entitled to the
Sanmanpatra and allied benefits which deserve to be and should be cancelled
forthwith and the Commission recommends accordingly.

PART – XV

CONCLUDING REMARKS
OF
THE COMMISSION

The Commission had occasion to go through in detail 354+1 ( 354 and


354A) files. The Commission could note various defects, infirmities and
drawbacks, in the recommendation of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti and the manner
in which the files were dealt with by the High Power Committee. The
Commission is conscious of the fact that if only few files were to be
examined, it may not have been possible to note various aspects or defects in
detail.

The Commission is also conscious of the fact in the concluding


remarks, the same aspects which are already pointed out either in the general
reasons part of different type of cases or in the particular case may be repeated
but even at the cost of repetition it is necessary to point out the said aspects.

The Commission took serious note of the observations of the Supreme


Court on the concept of fraud and how fraud vitiates even a solemn
proceeding. Fraud is something incapable of precise definition. The
Legislature has therefore not attempted to define fraud even in the Indian
Contract Act. The reason why fraud cannot be confined to a precise definition
is obvious as the human brain is so fertile in inventing new ways and methods
of committing fraud that it is almost impossible to confine it in a few words
and any attempt to have a precise definition may lead to inventing ways and
means of defrauding without coming into the clutches of the definition and
may prove counter productive. In brief an act which deceives is a deceit. The
Hon’ble Supreme Court has therefore dealt in detail with the various
judgments on the various aspects in which fraud has been explained in judicial
pronouncements. The direction of the Supreme Court was however not
restricted to finding out whether by fraudulent means Sanmanpatra and allied
benefits are secured by some persons. The Court clearly directed the
Commission to decide upon the acceptability or otherwise of the claims of the
- 840 -

Respondent freedom fighters (they are referred to as Respondents for the sake
of convenience as some of them were Respondents in the Public Interest
Litigation). The entitlements of the freedom fighters to the Sanmanpatra and
allied benefits viz. free traveling, pension, preference in service to dependants
etc. were required to be considered and decided by the Commission. This was
on the background of the fact that these benefits had already been granted by
the Government by examining their cases based on the recommendations of
the Zilla Gaurav Samiti. The matter was considered and forwarded to the High
Power Committee by the Zilla Gaurav Samiti. It was required to be
considered in accordance with the provisions of law including various
Government Resolutions issued from time to time. The most important
Government Resolution applicable to almost all cases with expectation which
are far and few between, was the one issued on 4th July 1995. The question
raised regarding its applicability to the pending cases was decided by the Full
Bench of the Bombay High Court in Tukaram Ramji V/s. State of
Maharashtra reported in 1993(3) Mah.L.J. 735. The full Bench laid down
the law by answering the three points raised as below:-

“(a) The said Government Resolution No.POS-


1093/FN.127/FF Cell Mantralaya, dated 4th July, 1995 shall apply
to all pending applications before the Collector as on 4th July
1995 except in cases where Zilla Gaurav Samiti has already
recommended the case for pension to the Government.

(b) For the reasons recorded hereinabove, the decision of


the earlier Division Bench in Writ Petition No. 5376 of 1995
decided on 2nd September, 1998 stands overruled.

( c) We have not examined the vires of the Government


Resolution No.POS-1093/FN.127/FF Cell Mantralaya dated
4rth July 199. The said question is expressly left open. “

The Commission also noted the important legal aspects laid down by
the Apex Court as well as by the High Court in deciding the claims of freedom
fighters in various other cases.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court has in the judgment of State of


Maharashtra V/s. Raghunath Gajanan Waingankar reported in 2004(4)
Mah.L.J. 283 observed,
- 841 -

”Held, that the High Court exercising writ jurisdiction


does not sit in judgment over the decision of the State Government
like the Appellate Authority. In no case the High Court could have,
in exercise of its writ jurisdiction, relaxed the need for full
satisfaction of the necessary requirements on the fulfillment of
which alone entitlement to the release of Freedom Fighters’
Pension depended. Judgment of the High Court set aside with
liberty to the petitioner to make fresh representation for
reconsideration of his case/relaxing the requirement of the scheme
(1993) Sup.(3) SCC 2, Rel.,(2001)8 SCC8,Ref.(Para 7).”

The Commission also noted the law laid down by Supreme Court in
Mukund Lal Bhandari Vs. Union of India and ors. Reported in (1003)
Suppl. (3) SCC 2 and in Gurdial Singh Vs. Union of India (2001) 8 SCC 8.

The Commission was fully conscious of the legal position regarding


scrutinizing evidence by the administrative authority in such cases as laid
down by the Supreme Court in AIR 2001 SC 3883 :- (Para 7)

“7.The standard of proof required in such cases is not such


standard which is required in a criminal case or in a case
adjudicated upon rival contentions or evidence of the parties. As
the object of the scheme is to honour and to mitigate the sufferings
of those who had given their all for the country, a liberal and not a
technical approach is required to be followed while determining
the merits of the case of a person seeking pension under the
scheme. It should not be forgotten that the persons intended to be
covered by scheme have suffered for the country about half a
century back and had not expected to be regarded for the
imprisonment suffered by them. Once the country has decided to
honour such freedom fighters, the bureaucrats entrusted with the
job of examining the cases of such freedom fighters are expected to
keep in mind the purpose and object of the scheme. The case of the
claimants under this scheme is required to be determined on the
basis of the probabilities and not on the touch-stone of the test of
“beyond reasonable doubt”. Once on the basis of the evidence it
is probabilised that the claimant had suffered imprisonment for the
cause of the country and during the freedom struggle, a
presumption is required to be drawn in his favour unless the same
is rebutted by cogent, reasonable and reliable evidence.”

The Beed District Committee i.e. Zilla Gaurav Samiti established by


Government Resolution No. ZGS 1095/PK/937/95/Beed/Freedom Fighter Cell
dated 19th March 1995. The Zilla Gaurav Samiti was established by this
- 842 -

Government Resolution under the Chairmanship of Babasaheb Bangar with


four members. The Additional Collector was to be the Member Secretary of
the Committee. This Government Resolution categorically states that on the
recommendation of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti the Collector shall have the right
to make final recommendation. The Collector is also expected to attend the
meetings as and when possible. The reference to this is necessary because in
almost all cases the remarks of the Additional Collector (representing the
Collector) after the decision in the meetings of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti were
practically ignored. One of the Advocate appearing before the Commission
Mr. Bachate even contended that the Collector is mere postman to forward the
decision of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti to the Government. The argument is
mentioned for rejecting it outright. It is contrary to the provisions of the
Government Resolution by which the Zilla Gaurav Samiti for Beed district
was established.

The Commission has already discussed in detail in general reasons in


respect of cases based on arrest warrant and cases of underground freedom
fighters in separate part of this Report.

There is a detailed reference to the affidavits of supporting freedom


fighters showing how indiscriminately they were filing supporting affidavits
with similar contents. In fact a detailed scrutiny of their affidavits reveal that
affidavits in a particular format were being filed mentioning the same incident
and claiming that the person in support of whom the affidavit was filed was
involved in the same incident with the supporting freedom fighter. The
number of persons involved in the particular incident was initially stated to be
50 to 60 and was later on increased to 80 to 90.

Such affidavits were filed in support of cases which were far above the
said number. This aspect is already discussed in detail in the part of general
reasons of cases based on arrest warrants. A particular format of the affidavit
was kept ready. It was got typed and the name of the person claiming to be
freedom fighter was inserted mentioning his age, place of residence and these
additions and alterations were not even initialed by anybody. There was
already blank space left for such insertion and this practice was so rampant
- 843 -

that in some cases the blank spaces remained blank and the affidavits were
sworn with blank spaces and such affidavits were not only filed but were also
relied upon, and in some cases on realizing that the earlier affidavits were
blank, the affidavits of other freedom fighters mentioning totally different
incidents were filed in addition.

Not only that such formats were kept ready by the supporting freedom
fighters, even for the claimant freedom fighter a format was kept ready and
the name of the applicant (claimant), his age and place of residence was added
and the additions were not initialed or signed. The Commission also found
that in some affidavits certain portions were erased by use of whitener and in
some cases name earlier written (name of the claimant) was erased by
whitener and other name of claimant was written in that place and as stated
earlier without any initial or signature. The advocate who identified the
deponent before the authority did not bother to bring it to the notice of the
authority. Even the authority did not bother to go through or even to have a
look at the affidavit and raise query as to why the name was added in different
ink or at different time and why the place for addition of name was blank.

It is obvious that the said authority was just signing the stamp paper
produced before it and never bothered even to inquire with the person as to
who he was and what statement is contained in the affidavit.

There is one classic case of person named Mukta Bapu Dhas who
claimed pension as a freedom fighter. The affidavit was drafted as if Mukta
was a woman because normally Mukta is name of woman and even the
supporting freedom fighters in their affidavits referred to Mukta as a woman.
These are some cases for example in case of Dwarkabai case file No. 84 and
Mahadev Kisan Mankale Case file No. 103 etc. in which similar interesting
aspects were noted. In the case of Dwarkabai although application was filed
by Dwarkabai in her capacity as widow of Wamanrao Kulkarni; she never
applied in her individual capacity as a freedom fighter. At some stage of the
proceeding when she filed affidavit the name of Dwarkabai came to be written
as a freedom fighter and the supporting freedom fighters who were ready to
swear affidavit in support of anybody stated in their affidavits that Wamanrao
- 844 -

as well as Dwarkabai were freedom fighters and she was involved with the
supporting freedom fighters in the particular incidents stated. Dwarkabai was
ultimately granted Sanmanpatra, pension etc. as a freedom fighter and not as
widow of Wamanrao. In the case of Mahadev Mankale the application was
filed by Mahadev and pending the application, he died. His widow claimed as
legal representative (widow) but in the affidavit filed by her later on stated
that she was also a freedom fighter and the supporting freedom fighters went
to the extent of stating that she was involved in the incidents stated and was
granted Sanmanpatra on the basis of such affidavit when in fact she had not
even applied for the same and the application was of her husband. In the
individual cases these aspects are discussed. There are also some other cases
of this type. These cases lead to an irresistable inference that the affidavits
were filed by the claimants and the supporting freedom fighters without
having least regard for the truth of the contents. Had the supporting freedom
fighters slightest regard for truth, they would have never asserted that this
woman who did not claim to be freedom fighter in her individual capacity had
taken part and was involved in the incidents stated in the affidavit.

When the Commission came across such typed of affidavits and


realized that these statements although typed on stamp papers and signed and
alleged to have been sworn before the officer of the level of Nayab
Tahasildar/Awwal Karkoon could not be treated as affidavits and the sanctity
to be given to a statement on oath could not be given to such documents and
could not even be said to be affidavits in the proper sense of term. In some
cases as already stated in general remarks part, the affidavits are filed with
blank spaces. It in fact leads to an inference that blank affidavits were typed
and kept ready and were sworn and thereafter the name of claimant/respondent
was added. It was a mockery of the requirements of Government Resolution to
file affidavits of freedom fighters sentenced to two years imprisonment.

In such circumstances even after considering the above stated


judgment of the Supreme Court, the Commission felt it absolutely necessary
to scrutinize the evidence minutely and to consider the effect of contradictions
in the statements seriously.
- 845 -

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti as well as High Power Committee were also
aware that these supporting freedom fighters have been indiscriminately filing
affidavits and in two different files at least the Member Secretary even found
it is necessary to hold inquiry and there was a direction which in fact
amounted to order to conduct inquiry and the note in the file stated that order
was sent to the Collector but the inquiry was never held which obviously
means that no such order was ultimately forwarded to the Collector to hold
inquiry. Had the Collector been directed to hold inquiry by written order, he
would definitely have started the inquiry. Such a serious direction was
suppressed without taking further steps and surprisingly enough in the very
same case the affidavits so severely criticized by the Member Secretary were
at a later stage accepted and the same Member Secretary recommended that
the claims be sanctioned despite the said affidavits on record. Even the Zilla
Gaurav Samiti observed in Case file No.9 – Bhagwan Dhondiba Chaure in
respect of four freedom fighters who were filing supporting affidavits
indiscriminately.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti as well as the High Power Committee were
even aware that in Beed district number of persons have already secured
Sanmanpatra and allied benefits on the basis of bogus warrant. The
Commission has already referred to the proceedings Zilla Gaurav Samiti in
1995 in the general reasons on warrant cases and also to the note of Sabhapati
that time has come to control and curtail such cases in Beed district as the
Government is required to sanction claims on the basis of false and fabricated
documents. It is really shocking that later on, on the basis of the same
warrant the claim was sanctioned and even the Sabhapati agreed with the
contradictory note put up after such a strong observation by him in earlier
note.

The Zilla Gaurav Samiti in many cases found that the warrant
produced (copy) was not reliable but it went on to recommend the cases
stating that it was convinced that the claimant/respondent was freedom fighter.
Unfortunately the Government Resolution did not leave it to that conviction
- 846 -

i.e. to the subjective satisfaction of the Zilla Gaurav Samiti but it required the
Samiti to be satisfied on the basis of evidence produced before it.

Another aspect of the matter is claims rejected once, twice and even
thrice were reconsidered without practically any new material on record when
in place of earlier two affidavits, affidavits of other two freedom fighters that
also from the list to which the Commission has made reference in general
reasons part pertaining to the cases of underground freedom fighters, were
relied upon and accepted even though these affidavits contained a totally
different version than the one stated earlier by the claimant freedom fighter
and by the supporting freedom fighters.

In the view of the Commission this type of approach helped the


perpetuation of the fraud and the persons who were not connected or
concerned with the freedom movement, ventured to apply and got the claims
sanctioned. To some extent they were exposed when their statements were
recorded by Mane Committee. Many of them stated that they did not take part
in the activities but they only provided breads (bhakari) and water to the
freedom fighters, that statement was also apparently made because they had
nothing else to state. The Commission had the added advantage of statements
of the respondent freedom fighters recorded in 2003 by Mane Committee, as
the direction included that the record of Mane Committee be also made
available to the Commission.

It is because of this type of approach and scrutiny by the Zilla Gaurav


Samiti and the High Power Committee, the persons who were either toddlers
or were not even borne at the time of freedom movement did dare claim and
got the claims sanctioned. This was a fraud not only on the Government but
as stated by the Supreme Court in fact “asanman” to the Nation as well as to
the real freedom fighters.

Although unfortunate, it is true that a scheme made with benevolent


object to honour persons who gave their all and the prime years of their life
for the freedom movement was misused. At the some stage unwanted and
undesirable elements took control and exploited the scheme to the fullest
- 847 -

extent. All these circumstances led the Commission to scrutinize the evidence
with minute details. When all the circumstances indicated that the warrants
were not genuine and comparison of the signatures on different warrants
fortified the suspicious felt by the
Commission, the Commission took the step to send the disputed warrants for
examination by handwriting expert that also because the Commission found
some undisputed correspondence in the file of Tahasildar Patoda signed by the
same person. The Commission got the signatures on various warrants
examined through the Government Handwriting Expert. The other
circumstances which led the Commission to suspect genuineness of the
warrants are already stated in the part of general reasons of warrant cases and
need no repetitions.

The Commission feels it really unfortunate that the image of freedom


fighters was tarnished. The freedom fighters who were convicted and
sentenced in the freedom movement actively supported false and fraudulent
claims. There was some systematic and planned strategy employed to place
fake and fabricated warrants in the files of Tahashil office Patoda, Police
Station Ambajogai, and the Court of Judicial Magistrate First Class Gevrai.
The Superintendent of Police Beed district has categorically stated that the
record of all the police station is destroyed, still Ambajogai Police Station
produced warrants and its copies signed as true copies issued by Police
Inspector Ambajogai which were not officially certified as true copies as per
the procedure prescribed.

All this led to perpetuation of fraud. It was really disgusting for the
Commission when such facts and circumstances were revealed while
scrutinizing the evidence.

The Commission is not called upon to opine as to how the High Power
Committee should function. However, the Commission feels that it should
have held regular meetings to consider the claims and should not have worked
in the manner in which any department of Mantralaya works. If the staff is
aware that matter will be discussed in meeting of which Chairman is the Chief
Minister, it would have prepared notes carefully and would naturally not have
- 848 -

twisted the facts as noted in many cases. However, the Commission also
agrees that the Committee alone can decide how it should function and is not
inclined to advise the Government about the procedure.

With these remarks the report is closed. The cases in which the
Commission has recommended cancellation may be considered by the
Government for taking action as deemed fit. The decision has ultimately to be
taken by the Government.
