Woman seeks cancellation of bail of abusers


Share post:

Mumbai: A woman thrashed by three leaders of Raj Thackeray’s Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) on Saturday urged the Maharashtra government to appeal in the court against the grant of bail to them as “it is a matter of respect for all women”.

The MNS leaders who slapped and shoved a woman in Mumbai’s Kamathipura area were given bail on Friday, a day after they were arrested after a video of the abuse went viral on social media.

Vinod Argyle, Raju Argyle and Sandeep were released from jail on a surety of Rs 15,000 by the Sewri Metropolitan Magistrate Court.

Victim Prakash Devi appealed to the state to initiate action against the accused and spoke against their bail.

She said their release was “unfortunate as they would do the same with other women as well”.

“I was slapped, pushed, abused. This is a matter of respect for all women… I appeal to the Maharashtra government to watch the video, take action against the accused and teach them a lesson.”

The woman was thrashed by Argyle on August 28 allegedly over an argument over the installation of a bamboo pole for an advertisement in front of her shop without consent.
