He used to do strange things like singing songs in the streets, harassing men and women, swearing at them, running after them with stones, beating them, not composing sentences, forgetting the past, coming into the body of God and holding the collar.
Such mentally ill persons in the society are supported on behalf of a EKATI Organization. The organization is constantly following up with the administration for the care and protection of these patients. Statements have been made to Superintendent of Police Shailesh Balkwade to organize a workshop on Mental Illness Act 2017 to help the police in this process but it seems that it has not been taken into consideration yet. Anuradha Bhosale, president of the organization, has demanded that the workshop be held as soon as possible.
