A spectacular narration in form of a memoir by- InspectorJayant Wagle.
A well described and crisply crafted literary work by the author Medha Telang is a page turner in the true crime stories. Specially in today’s world when the police department, faces so many criticism while they compound a job that’s not so easy. A tough job to trace the criminal, and crimes with the paucity of manpower and limitations of tools, equipments that are few in their reach, do interfere with the process of investigation. Despite of the fact that the department holds numbers of setbacks and difficulties with crime rate that’s increasing day by day, but indeed the able officers do contribute there best to deliver the society with peace, law and order. One among them most popular Jayant Wagle, an rising star in the Mumbai police history, with achievements and selfless career, who enhanced the image of his department. Mr Wagle’s courage, sense of duty and conviction earned him a lot of respect, and won him laurels, not only at the hands of his seniors, his friends but also from the conman man & media as well.
He was a friend not only of the victims, but of the accused too that made him remarkably different from others.
Ms Telang has done a tremendous job in justifying the crime scenes by adding captivating words and appropriateness to the characters in the stories that are depicted in this book and that explicitly state the accuracy of the information contained within every encounter narrated and how the logical approaches towards the crime scenes stands for a recommended read.
As the cases resolved by Inspector Waghle can be inspiration for many specially the cracking up to the cases which were too complicated to resolve like:
“The mystery of the severed head, the rounding up of the tactless terrorist..
The Bombay CID is regarded as the second in line to Scotland Yard, one can retain the effects that was left behind by britishers as the officers choose sharp wisdom and precision to best analytical approach towards the solving of the cases.
This book contains many such narratives of the encountered cases that Wagle continued to solve intellectually thus achieving success after success. Readers would be amazed to get to know that Waghle was known for his hard work and sincere efforts.
The sensational Worli Riots of 1974 raging for four terrible months, killing seven people, injuring several others, including policemen, ignoring the appeals and padayatras of top political leaders conjointly, was controlled by Wagle within two days without firing a shot.
The Bombay Man’s Diary dated July 18, 1980 wrote about him:
“Wagle was a terror to desperadoes and bullies and a man known for his relentless detection of housebreaking and theft cases, involving lot of leg work and patience.
Wagle also known for his expertise on mob control.
Thus this book narratives are hence the evidential records that subsequently portray the vibrant personality of Inspector Wagle who looked upon his work, not merely as official duty but as a mission. He successfully added the colour by his behavior his patience and approach that helps in balancing that the police are friends of the people for the people.
Hence, again this book highlights the inspiring messages that would leave deep impressesions upon all the young enthusiastic police officers, who can continue his work methodology in gaining trust and faith among common man.
