Some time in July the meager savings account of a" Hindu student at the University of California will be turned over to -the State Treasurer under terms of California's abandoned property law. The sum of $142.73, inactive in the main Berkeley branch of the American Trust Company since January, 1931, will be declared abandoned. That is the amount left by Sant Ram Pande, Hindu student whose body, nude and headless, was found lashed to a tractor wheel in March, 1931, in a creek bed near Rio Vista. EXPECTED DEATH Police at the time laid Pande's death to a Hindu murder ring which claimed 14 lives between 1927 and 1931. The student, of 1922 Oxford. Street, supplied his fingerprints to the State Bureau of Criminal Investigation a week before his death. He expected to be killed, authorities at the time related, because of his pro-British leanings in disturbances over the Ghandi movement in India. Pande's education twas financed by a Hindu- merchant in Marys-ville. When an attempt was made on the life of the merchant's son, Pande pledged himself to run down the killers. i He withdrew from school, obtained a gun permit, and placed his fingerprints on file. FANATICS BLAMED Murders occurred periodically in California, committed, authorities said, by a fanatical group of supporters of the Ghandi liberation movement. i ' Pande, 27 at the time of his death, had been missing a month prior to discovery of his body. When he was found, it was estimated he had been dead two weeks. ' . i Since then, according to American Trust Company officials, there has been no valid claim for the savings account he left. . 3 Executed for Robbery Slaying TRENTON, N-T., May 14 Three convicts walked calmly to New Jersey's electric chair last night and paid for the holdup-killing of a Newark tavern patron.
