In an unusual case, a Daund-based veterinarian sat on an indefinite hunger strike against authorities of the State Family Welfare Department for not taking action against his wife, who he claims had illegally aborted their child.
After waiting for months for the authorities to take action in his favour, Pravin Kadam decided to stage a hunger strike till he gets justice. However, the department claims that the abortion was natural and that Kadam was unnecessarily involving the government in his personal dispute.
