rr patil rr patil passes away, rr patil dies “Aabanchi shevatchi movement, (this is Aaba ‘s last traffic movement),” said constable S Kamble who was deployed to control the traffic.

The demise of NCP leader and former Maharashtra home minister RR Patil on Monday left many policemen shaken. The mood inside the control room at Worli Traffic Police Headquarters, monitoring the convoy of Patil’s body from the Hospital in Bandra to the Nationalist Congress Party Office in Nariman Point, was very emotional.

“Aabanchi shevatchi movement, (this is Aaba ‘s last traffic movement),” said constable S Kamble who was deployed to control the traffic.

“He (Patil) had started the free medical assistance for our families. I had gone through an angioplasty at Raheja hospital which did not cost me a rupee. The bill was 2.50 lakhs,” said ASI P Patil while performing his duty at the control room.
