Mumbai: The daughter of policeman Arun Jadhav who survived the 26/11 terror attacks, has been appointed as a deputy director in the agriculture department of the Maharashtra government.

Twenty-year-old Dhanashree, who completed her agricultural engineering from Konkan Krishi Vidyapeeth, Dapoli, in 2015, recently applied for a vacancy and received the job order. She will join duty in the Gadchiroli district on April 2.

 

The night of November 28, 2008, when terror attacks ravaged the city, Arun Jadhav was in the police van targeted by Pakistani terrorists Ajmal Kasab and Abu Ismail near Cama Hospital in south Mumbai.

While the then Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) chief Hemant Karkare; IPS officer Ashok Kamte; ‘encounter specialist’ police inspector Vijay Salaskar; and three other constables lost their lives as the terrorists opened fire on the van, constable Jadhav was the only one to survive the ambush. He now works with the Anti-Extortion Cell of Mumbai police.

Arun Jadhav has thanked chief minister Devendra Fadnavis and agriculture minister Pandurang Phundkar along with the officials who helped him.
