One Of India’s Wealthiest Men Dies After Attending Friend’s Son’s Birthday Party


Phuge Maharashtra

According to Press Trust of India, It has been reported that one of India’s richest men Phuge Maharashtra is dead, after his friend invited him for his son’s birthday party on Thursday. The local police inspector Navnath Ghogare disclosed that was attacked and killed by 12 assailants brandishing stones and sharp weapons on Thursday night after one of the suspects invited him and his son to a birthday party.  However, four of the suspects have since been detained by the police. Ghogare said:

“As per preliminary information, Phuge and his son were invited by one of the suspects, who know each other, to celebrate a birthday. However, we are investigating how Phuge reached the open ground where he was murdered.”

Phuge’s 22-year-old son witnessed his father being murdered and had been spared by the alleged killers, he added, saying that police suspected the motive could have been a dispute over a money transaction. He added that his father loved gold and the fame that came with his shirt. In his last interview in 2013, Phuge said that:

“Everybody knows me as the ‘gold man’ in the whole region. Other rich people spend one crore (10 million rupees) to buy Audis or Mercedes, to buy what they like. What crime have I done? I just love gold,” he told AFP in 2013. “Gold has always been my passion since a young age. I’ve always worn gold as jewellery in the form of bracelets, rings and chains.”
