Fellow blogger M, and her friends have got together to set up a trust fund to donate a substantial amount to the widow of Arun Chitte (Vijay Salaskar's driver who was gunned down by the terrorists) and his family. If you recall, I had posted up the results of their efforts in finding out further information about each family on the blog a while ago.
This is what I received from her recently:
We are planning on contributing significantly to the Chitte family. We have collected Rs. 2.5 lakhs till now and more is coming in. Chitte’s wife is coming to Mumbai tomorrow and we plan to speak to her in person and figure out how she would like the money to be given to her.
For logistical convenience, we are depositing this money in a trust account created by Amarchand. Further contributions can therefore be made through electronic transfers / cheques if preferred. All cheques should be addressed to Amarchand & Mangaldas & Suresh A. Shroff & Co. and we request that the account number (000004257170028) be written on the back of the cheque so that the money can be deposited efficiently.
All persons interested in contributing by cheque, please do mail in your request and I will forward you the contact details for the same.
