Maharashtra, Jan 31 (Jagran News Network): The main accused in the murder of ADC Yashwant Sonawane succumbed to his injuries on Monday.

Shinde, who was the key accused of burning ADC Sonawane alive in Manmad, Maharashtra, was admitted to the hospital with serious burn injuries after he reportedly grabbed Shinde during the attack.

He was among the people who poured kerosene over Sonawane when the Additional District Collector tried to take photographs of kerosene being stolen from an oil tanker.

According to sources, Shinde had been working for the oil mafia for around 30 years. Once a roadside snack seller, he befriended truck drivers who operate at the massive oil depots in Manmad. Shinde learnt the tricks of the oil pilferage trade and soon owned two oil tankers.
