In an attempt to assist the Pulwama terror attack victims' families, a Mumbai Vada Pav stall owner has donated his day's earnings to them. On February 22, he sold Vada Pavs at a cheaper rate of ₹5 per vada pav instead of ₹14.

The owner, Mangesh Ahiwale sold 10,080 Vada Pavs and earned ₹50,400 on February 22. Accordingly, next week, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut will go and meet martyr Nitin Rathod's family and donate the money to them. Nitin Rathod who hails from Maharashtra's Lonar taluka, was one of CRPF officials who lost their lives in the terrorist attack in Pulwama, Kashmir.
