The Mira Bhayandar-Vasai Virar (MBVV) police commissioner- Madhukar Pandey detained a serial offender identified as Mastan Usman Shaikh under the Maharashtra Prevention of Dangerous Activities (MPDA) Act.

A resident of Gopcharpada area in Virar, Shaikh is notorious for his involvement in several crimes of serious nature including- extorting money from local builders and small-time businessmen, molestation, assaulting government servants, acid attack, attempt-to-murder and illegal possession of firearms.

After compiling the past history of his criminal activities, the senior police inspector of the Virar police station, prepared a proposal for Shaikh’s detention under the MPDA Act and submitted it to the DCP. Subsequently, the DCP forwarded the same to the police commissioner. Sensing the seriousness of Shaikh’s criminal activities which posed a threat to the law and order situation, the police commissioner issued orders of his detention under the provisions of the MDPA Act. 

He was sent to the Thane central jail. This is the first instance in which a goon has been detained under the MPDA Act by the MBVV police. The act empowers the district magistrate and the commissioner of police to exercise provisions under MPDA to detain a person who in their view is acting in manner prejudicial to the maintenance of public order. 

In the wake of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, the MBVV police are not leaving any stone unturned to nip chances of any untoward law and order situation in its bud. Apart from intensifying its operation to nab fugitives and wanted criminals, the MBVV police have also compiled a list of goons, anti-social elements and habitual trouble mongers for taking appropriate preventive action including issuance of externment (tadi-paari) orders in accordance to the provisions of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), 1973 as per the gravity and nature of their offences.
