'It's painful to see Santosh Mane alive'
In 2010, Milind Gaikwad had narrowly escaped death as the German Bakery blast took place just ten minutes after he had left the spot. However, he was not second time lucky as MSRTC driver Santosh Mane's reckless driving killed him. Gaikwad's wife Nandini, a school teacher, now toils hard to single-handedly raise their 16-year-old daughter and eight-year-old son.
"I cannot help being bitter. Santosh Mane should be hanged at the earliest. It is painful to see him alive when his reckless driving last year took so many lives and ruined families," said Nandini.
"Mane snuffed out several lives. Then why is he still alive," she asked in an emotional outburst while speaking to Newsline on Wednesday.
