Mumbai: The Shiv Sena Uddhav Balasaheb Thackeray took an aggressive posture after the attack by unknown persons at the residence of the party’s firebrand legislator Mr Bhaskar Jadhav, at his residence in Chiplun in Ratnagiri district in the wee hours of Wednesday. 

Unknown miscreants pelted stones, threw a petrol bottle and a stump at the compound wall of Mr Jadhav’s residence. The police have confirmed the incident, saying that no one was injured in it. The police have deployed additional forces after Mr Jadhav’s son and party workers condemned the attack.

The Thackeray-led party leaders claimed that it was a pre-planned one especially a day after Mr Jadhav at the morcha organised at Kudal in Sindhudurg district had targeted the union minister Narayan Rane and his two sons, Nitesh and Nilesh. The attack took place days after the withdrawal of Mr Jadhav’s police security cover.

Yuva Sena chief Mr Aaditya Thackeray, strongly condemned the attack and demanded that the police conduct a probe into the hand of any network and political support in the attack. ‘’The attack took place barely three hours after Mr Jadhav’s security was withdrawn.
