Mumbai: Shiv Sena-NCP workers clash over hall opening, 19 held

MUMBAI: Nineteen people, including Shiv Sena corporators Manohar Madhvi and his son Karan, were arrested for allegedly damaging NCP MLA Sandeep Naik’s car in neighbouring Navi Mumbai, police said Tuesday. The arrests were in connection with a scuffle that broke out on Friday between Shiv Sena and Nationalist Congress Party workers over the inauguration of a wedding hall built by the NMMC in Madhvi’s civic ward in Airoli, police said.

Sena and NCP workers clashed after the NMMC mayor, who belongs to the NCP, proceeded with the inauguration ceremony in the absence of local Shiv Sena Lok Sabha MP Rajan Vichare, an official said. Cross complaints have been filed by both groups and 12 Sena functionaries, including Madhvi and his son Karan, have been held.
