70-year-old 'don' Gangubai controls Byculla jail
Friday, 5th February 2010
She is a granny — frail and old. But even that does not stop Gangubai Kshirsagar, 70, arrested in a drugs case, to boss over almost every other prisoner in the Byculla prison.
Kshirsagar was arrested by the Anti-Narcotic Cell (ANC) of the
Mumbai police for allegedly possessing 40kgs of marijuana and has been behind bars for a month. According to senior jail officers, Kshirsagar’s behaviour has been “arrogant” and “difficult”. Soon, she is becoming the “don” of the prison. The exit of high-profile jailbirds like Zaheera Shaikh of BEST bakery fame and Rubina, underworld don Chhota Shakeel’s girlfriend, Kshirsagar is soon gaining the tag of being the “jail boss”.
