Pune: An illegal 40×40 ft hoarding collapsed on Saturday due to heavy rain, injuring three men and a horse, and damaging two vehicles near Kavdipat Bridge in Loni Kalbhor, approximately 30 km from Pune. The incident occurred around 4.30 pm. The Loni Kalbhor police identified the injured as Akshay Korvi (27) from Bibvewadi, Mangesh Londhe (35), and Bharat Sabale (65) from Ganj Peth. The horse, owned by Sanket Pardeshi from Loni Kalbhor, sustained a leg injury. Korvi and Londhe were discharged after receiving treatment for minor injuries.Dr Yellapa Jadhav, superintendent at Sassoon General Hospital, said, “Sabale is experiencing pain in his left leg and back after falling while trying to escape the collapsing hoarding. He is currently stable and undergoing further treatment.”Senior inspector Shashikant Chavan told TOI, “The illegal hoarding collapsed due to strong winds. The hoarding was installed by two business partners from Kharadi on a land owned by local businessman Sanjay Kamthe from Loni Kalbhor.” Chavan said the incident occurred when the injured victims were waiting below the hoarding in a pick-up van. The bike was parked aside, while the horse was tied nearby.Businessman Sanjay Kamthe said, “I am not responsible for the hoarding collapse because I had entered into an agreement with two Kharadi-based businessmen in 2022 to install the hoarding on my property for a period of five years. One of the clauses in the agreement stated that the businessmen will have to seek necessary permissions from the PMRDA and Loni Kalbhor Gram Panchayat before installing the hoarding.”Loni Kalbhor gram panchayat sarpanch Chittranjan Nana Gaikwad told TOI, “The gram panchayat had conducted a survey and identified over 30 hoarding installed illegally since the past 8 to 10 years. We had issued notices around six months ago to all hoarding owners asking them to furnish documents if their hoardings were legal.”Assistant commissioner of police (Hadapsar division) Ashwini Rakh told TOI, “I have issued instruction to the senior inspector of Loni Kalbhor police to write to the PMRDA chief to remove the illegal hoardings.” Senior inspector Chavan said the hoarding owners will be served notices to join the police investigation and they have been booked under bailable offenses. Loni Kalbhor gram panchayat sarpanch Chittranjan Gaikwad told TOI over phone, “The hoarding which collapsed is illegal. We have identified over 30 such hoardings in Loni Kalbhor. ”(With inputs from Steffy Thevar & Alim Shaikh)
