When 300 banners, hoardings to say sorry to girlfriend in the middle of city became headache


The Hush Post: A man had displayed over 300 banners and hoardings in a posh area of Maharashtra’s Pimpri Chinchwad area adjoining Pune to make up with his girlfriend after a dispute. The incident, however, became a headache for the local police.

The residents of the area woke up and saw hundreds of posters, which had the name of the girl along with an apology in bold prints with a heart symbol beside it in red, dotting the area especially prominent traffic intersections.

This act, however, has put Nilesh Khedekar, a 25-year-old local businessman in trouble. Now Wakad police has approached the Pimpri Chinchwad civic body to initiate action as per rules dealing with illegal hoardings and defacement of public property.

The police officials said, “We managed to zero in on his friend Vilas Shinde who had helped Khedekar get the flex hoardings printed. Through him, we traced Khedekar who is the brain behind this act.”

He further informed that Khedekar wanted to apologise and make up with his girlfriend after a fight and therefore came up with this “creative” idea.

“The girl was coming on Friday to the area from Mumbai. Under the cover of darkness in the intervening night of Thursday and Friday, over 300 hoardings were put up on the route which the girl was likely to commute from,” the official said.
