Mumbai News: Shiv Sena UBT Leader Anil Desai Reaches EOW Office For Questioning In Alleged Funds Withdrawal Case |

Mumbai: Shiv Sena (Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray) faction leader Anil Desai reached the office of the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) of Mumbai Police on Tuesday. The EOW had summoned Desai for questioning over the allegations made by the Shiv Sena (Eknath Shinde) faction. 

Shiv Sena (Eknath Shinde) has alleged that after the Election Commission declared Eknath Shinde as real Shiv Sena, the Uddhav Thackeray faction had transferred the party funds deposited in the bank to another bank account.

On January 30, Chief Minister Eknath Shinde-led Shiv Sena treasurer Balaji Kinikar met Mumbai Commissioner of Police Vivek Phansalkar and filed a written complaint of fraud and forgery against Shiv Sena (UBT) officials, claiming that the faction was misusing PAN and TAN details and fraudulently filing TDS and income tax returns of the party.

ECI's Decision On Real Shiv Sena

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on February 17, 2023, recognised Eknath Shinde's faction as the "real" Shiv Sena, nearly eight months after his rebellion split the parent party into two factions.

The poll body had also announced that Shinde's team will get the 'bow-and-arrow' symbol, the original party symbol. After the coup, the poll body had frozen the bow-and-arrow symbol and allotted the 'two swords and shield' symbol to the Shinde, and the 'flaming torch' symbol to the Uddhav Thackeray camp. The two factions had staked claim to both the party symbol and the party name and knocked on the doors of courts and the poll body.
