AHMEDABAD: Citizens of Ahmedabad paid rich tributes to Vasantrao Hegishte and Rajab Ali Lakhani who sacrificed their lives 62 years ago; they were killed by a mob during communal skirmishes.
They rescued a Muslim driver from a rioting Hindu mob and a Hindu owner of a washing company from a Muslim mob. When they reached Khand-ni-Sheri in Jamalpur area to save a Dalit family, the mob threatened to kill them but they did not budge and lied down on the road to prevent the rioters from going ahead. The fanatics killed Vasant and Rajab but spared the Dalit family.
