  1. Dear Sir/Madam

    Very Similar incident has happend to us as well we stay in Belgaum we run a small restaurant.There is a newspaper called Bharat Vaibhav which is operated by Prashant Rao Aihole who is already under many scams husband of ZP president Asha Prashant Aihole.

    There pending amount of Rs.22000/- we are asking for repayment they are not doing it.And when we complained to APMC police station even there we didn’t get any help they asked us to forget about that amount and on top of that Prashant Rao Aihole he came to station drunk and started shouting using abusive language in front of the police people but police supported him not us and they told us to forget the amount it will be not paid.

    We tried all the ways Rs.22000 not a big amount for them it is a huge amount for us who are doing a small business like us if police and politicians will not help us who will help.

    Our restaurant is operated mainly by females and physically challenged ladies.We are hoping to get some help from All about Belgaum and we get Justice.
