MNS activists vandalise toll booth?


Thane: Suspected Maharashtra Navnirman Sena workers ransacked a toll plaza located at Kharigaon-Kalwa in the district today.

When contacted, police denied the incident.

Pimple is the vice-president of Kalyan unit of MNS and was on her way to Kalwa police station to lodge her complaint for the loss of her mobile phone, sources said.

The incident happened as one of the staffers at the booth allegedly abused MNS chief Raj Thackeray, which resulted into the clash.

Pagare is reportedly arrested.
