Anuj Bidve murder: GMP therapists, creepy Hazel Blears and saving Manchester’s education industry

ANUJ Bidve: a look at the murder of the Indian student in Salford on Boxing Day: creeping police, Hazel Blears and money…

The Hinduistan Times:

Bidve, 23, a microelectronics post-graduate student at Lancaster university, was shot dead in Manchester on Christmas night.

He was not. He was shot in the very early hours of Boxing Day.

Rakesh Sonawane, Anuj Bidve’s brother-in-law tells the paper:

“Chief superintendent Russ Jackson of the Greater Manchester police, plus a specially trained family liaison officer…will be visiting Pune on Monday.”

Chief superintendent Barry Russel Jackson, detective constable Peter Christian Rickards and police constable Esther Barbara Lambert have flown to Pune to meet the family.

Yeah, just three coppers have headed to India to tell the family that Anuj Bidve is dead. Only three. This is not an investigation. This is PR. The Greater Manchester Police did not tell Anuj Bidve’s parents their son had died. The father’s phone number was on Anuj Bidve’s mobile phone. Yet, no-one from the police called it. Anuj Bidve’s family discovered he had died over Facebook .

The GMP have made five arrests. They have used the words racially motivated in connection with the murder. They have called it a hate crime but get his not a racist one. The police are running rings around themselves.

The GMP has posted a £50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the “white” man who murdered Anuj Bidve.

Says Assistant Chief Constable Dawn Copley:

“It is important to me personally – and Greater Manchester Police – to have someone from the force meet with Anuj’s family at the earliest opportunity and help support them at this time.”

Feel free to sneer and toll your eyes. There’s big money in foreign students studying in the UK. The Chief Super is heading to see the victim’s family. His deputy has taken the murder personally . And the families of victims of every other murder on the GMP patch can expect the same aftercare service being given to Anuj Bidve?

And this vin dnaIndia :

On Saturday, two British Members of Parliament, Keith Vaz, and Hazel Anne Blears, called on Anuj Bidve’s family in Pune assuring them of fullest co-operation from the UK government in the murder investigations of the micro-engineering student at Lancaster University.

Says the aforesaid Mr Sonawane:

“The MPs told us that the case was being taken very seriously at the British Parliament. They have asked for a report on investigations into the case and have assured us that they would extend every possible help to us. In fact, they have asked us to meet them when we go to Greater Manchester.”

Meet Hazel Blears and find your son’s killer. How? This is more self-serving PR. Anuj Bidve’s is dead and his
