Mumbai: With lawlessness continuing unabated in Maharashtra under Uddhav Thackeray-led Maha Vikas Agadi (MVA), Shiv Sena goons have allegedly attacked an ex-Navy officer on Friday over a Whatsapp forward.
The 62-year-old retired Navy veteran – Madan Sharma, is currently under treatment at Shatabdi Hospital in Kandivali. The officer has allegedly filed a complaint against the Sena workers at Kandivali police station.
Madan Sharma- a Kandivali resident, told Republic TV that he was attacked by goons led by a Shiv Sena ‘Shakha’ head, who allegedly barged into Sharma’s compound.
Calling the ex-Navy officer to come out of his house, the Sena unit chief allegedly attacked him. The Whatsapp forward was a satirical cartoon featuring Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray and his allies – Sharad Pawar and Sonia Gandhi.
This attack on the veteran is a continuation of the fascism on display in Maharashtra. Two-days a Republic Team led by Anuj Kumar was taken into illegal custody and denied legal aide for following up on a lead in an investigation in the Sushant Singh Rajput and Disha Salian murder that took them to a farmhouse in Karjat. The Republic Team has been in illegal custody for over 48-hours.
