Mr.Babu Ganu Said
He hailed from Mhalunge Padwal. He laid his life for Swadeshi Movement during freedom struggle. As a part of a boycott movement at Bombay, he attempted to stop a truck loaded with foreign clothes. The truck ran over him. Thus he died a martyr. The science wing of the College was named after him in his memory.
