Maharashtra Nirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray’s personal security officer Police Sub-Inspector Mohan Chalke of Maharashtra Police surrendered before the Ponda police and was released subsequently on a personal bond of Rs 5,000 in connection with the incident at Borim on Monday.
PSI Mohan Chalke had reportedly pulled out his gun and fired it on two different occasions on Monday, once at a driver of a truck and subsequently at the owner of the truck who had stopped their vehicle to find out why the first incident occurred.
Raj Thackeray’s staff besides assaulting the driver of the truck Dayanand Satarkar had also damaged the truck by smashing the windscreen and a complaint to this effect was lodged with the Ponda police.
The incident had resulted in agitated villagers blocking National Highway 17-B for nearly three hours on Monday.
Police also arrested the owner of the truck Rupesh Borkar for unlawful assembly and blocking the road and he too was released on a personal bond of Rs 5,000.
