Mumbai, Jul 13 (PTI) NCP legislator Kiran Pawaskar demanded here today that President\'s Medal winner Arun Jadhav of the Mumbai Police who suffered bullet injuries and was instumental in nabbing Ajmal Kasab be shifted either to the crime branch or the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS). Wondering how a braveheart like Jadhav who is currently posted at the Vidhan Bhawan could be transferred to the Local Arms (LA) department, he told the Legislative Council\'s Upper House that such decisions would demoralise policemen. "During 26/11, Jadhav was one of the policemen who suffered bullet injuries when terrorists attacked the police jeep in which former ATS chief Hemant Karkare, Senior Police Inspector Vijay Salaskar and Additional Commissioner of Police Ashok Kamte were killed. As Jadhav informed the police control room, it helped in arresting Kasab alive and killing another terrorist, who was heading towards Walkeshwar, South Mumbai" he added. After hearing Pawaskar\'s plea, Water Supply Minister Laxmanrao Dhoble, who was present in the house assured that he would convey the member\'s feelings to Home Minister R R Patil.
