Gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli, who is currently serving life sentence at Nagpur Central Jail vis-à-vis a murder case, is pursuing a degree course in Bachelor of Arts (BA).

Gawli is pursuing the same from a Nasik-based Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University (YCMOU) in 2019 after he topped an examination on Gandhian Thoughts held by an NGO in 2017.

Gawli, in the first and second years of BA exams, failed in one subject each. However, he appeared for the final year exams under the ATKT (Allowed to Keep Terms) provision.

Some unknown miscreants in Nagpur vandalised Bishop Cotton School situated on VIP in Dharampeth during the weekend. Apart from the broken plant pots and damaged earthing wires, empty alcohol bottles could also be seen thrown on the floor of the classrooms.


Prima facie it seems some drunkards might have used the school as their hang out place to consume alcohol as it was a weekend and the school was closed. However, nothing could be ascertained as of now; the investigation on the same is on. 


When Nation Next spoke to Sonia Singh, Principal at Bishop Cotton School, she told us, What kind of a mentality is this Such people should at least spare kids. It’s so disheartening to see something like this. Class 10 students had their board exams today; unfortunately, we couldn’t indulge them much.”

Singh added, “All the pots have been broken, the earthing wires for the newly installed water cooler for kids has also been damaged.”

However, Singh, who filed an FIR at Sitabuld Police Station today, said, this wasn’t the first such incident; even during lockdown, some miscreants had stolen printers and other property of the school.

During the raid, an army of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel was also deployed under his house. The crime branch had issued a notice to Ukey regarding a land transaction in Nagpur.
