Shiv Sena surrounded by beating of retired navy officer in Mumbai, 6 party workers arrested
Police have arrested 6 people so far in the case of attack on former Naval officer Madan Sharma in Mumbai. Earlier, Samta Nagar Police arrested two Shiv Sena workers. Among those arrested is Kamlesh Kadam, a Shiv Sena branch chief.
Apart from Kamlesh Kadam, the name of another Shiv Sena worker is Sanjay Manjre. Former Navy officer Madan Sharma told about the incident that 8-10 people attacked and beaten me today. Earlier, I received threatening calls for a message, which I had forwarded. I have worked for the country my whole life. Such a government should not exist.
A video of former Naval officer Madan Sharma being beaten up by Shiv Sena workers surfaced. In this video, Shiv Sena workers are dragged out of the former Navy officer and brought out of his house and are seen beating badly.
It was told that Shiv Sena workers were angry that the former Navy officer had allegedly forwarded such a picture of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on WhatsApp, which was molested and the Shiv Sena did not like it.
On the other hand, the BJP has become an attacker on the Uddhav government over this incident. BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra tweeted that Wow Shiv Sena. How much did you increase Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj by attacking an elderly general. You are indeed a ‘lion’.
Before Patra, former Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis also tweeted that the former Navy officer was beaten up by goons only because he had forwarded a message on WhatsApp. Uddhav Thackeray stop this Gundaraja. We want strong action and these goons should be punished.
