Son of auto-rickshaw driver first Muslim from Malegaon in Maharashtra police
Tuesday September 17, 2013 12:55 PM, Staff Reporter

Muslims from the city of powerlooms, Malegaon, have impressive representations in every walk of life. But, they were never been represented in Maharashtra police. With the induction of Mohsin Gaffar Shaikh in Maharashtra Police along with one other person from the city, they now have not one but two persons from the city to serve in the state police force.

Mohsin Gaffar Shaikh, son of an auto-rickshaw driver, belongs to a family which is financially very poor. After completing early education from Jamhoor High School & Jr College and graduation in economics from a local college, he appeared for the Maharashtra Police exams, and cleared the exam in third attempt.

After being inducted in the Maharashtra police, he has been sent to Jalna for necessary training. A total of 1050 youths including 35 Muslims are getting training in Jalna after their induction into the state police force.

After completion of his training, Mohsin wants to be part of "M-Branch" of the state intelligence wing. The "M-Branch" is part of the state intelligence which reportedly keeps a watch on Muslims. A transfer to this wing is considered as "punishment".

"I want to be part of this wing so that I can properly report about the Muslim community. Most of the problems we are facing today are because of inaccurate reporting. I want to be there so that I can correct this", he said.

Moshin, however, does not want to stop here. He wants to appear for Maharashtra Pubic Services Commission (MPSC) exams so that he can work on other higher posts.
