Datta Phuge took the interwebs by storm three years ago when we introduced the $250,000 22-karat-gold-shirt-wearing 32-year-old Indian who proclaimed “I know I am not the best looking man but surely no woman could fail to be dazzled by this shirt?” showing the world that gold is much more than a barbarous relic. Sadly, as The BBC reports, “the gold man” was murdered overnight – found stoned-and-sickled to death near his home in Dighi, India.
[…] As ABP Live reports, millionaire money-lender, Datta D. Phuge, famous as ‘Pimpri Goldman’ was found clobbered to death near Dighi here on early Friday morning, police said.
The high-profile businessman’s vehicle was accosted by some unknown persons on the outskirts of the city late on Thursday night.
