Mumbai: Nirmal Nagar police have registered a case against Sharad Koli, deputy leader of the Shiv Sena (UBT) group, for allegedly intimidating Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and his party workers on social media.
Sources said that a poster welcoming Uddhav Thackeray was displayed between Thane and Mumbra, but most of them were torn down. Angered by the incident, Koli posted a video on social media on November 11, stating that if they tear down posters at night, Shiv Sainiks will retaliate during the day.
Case registered against accused
A complaint was filed at the Nirmal Nagar police station in this regard. Based on this complaint, the Nirmal Nagar Police registered a case against Koli under sections 506(a) (criminal intimidation) and 504 (intent to provoke breach of peace).
Dixit Gedam, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Zone-8, said, “The video was uploaded from Solapur. A member of the Shinde group filed an FIR at the Nirmal Nagar police station on Thursday. We are in the process of transferring the case to Solapur."
