Following the shooting, Ghosalkar was quickly rushed to Karuna Hospital, Borivali in serious condition. Despite all medical efforts, both individuals were declared dead by the authorities.

Soon after Abhishek Ghosalkar tragically passed away succumbing to his injuries, Noronha took his own life. The shocking video of the incident has now gone viral on social media and has deeply shaken Mumbai city. The authorities have confirmed both the individuals as dead.

Who Was Mauris Noronha?

The culprit responsible for the fatal shooting of Shiv Sena leader Ghosalkar, identified as 'Mauris bhai' on social media, portrayed himself as a philanthropist and social worker. According to reports, the firearm involved in the incident was an illegal weapon.

Despite their reported "personal enmity," Ghosalkar and Noronha had arranged a Facebook Live session to express their mutual intention to resolve their differences for the betterment of the IC Colony area. The disclosure of their reconciliation amidst their contested bid to run for Ward No. 1 within the Uddhav Thackeray faction of Shiv Sena adds intricacy to the unfolding narrative.

Further investigation by Mumbai Police uncovered Mauris Noronha's background, revealing prior allegations spanning from cheating to attempted murder, threats, and rape dating back to 2014. However, the complaint against Noronha was filed in 2022, leading to his subsequent arrest.

Speculation Of Noronha's Political Connection

An old picture surfaced online, where Mauris is seen receiving an award from Amruta Fadnavis, the wife of Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. This image sparked speculation and stirred discussions about potential political connections.

Shiv Sena (UBT) leader and Rajya Sabha MP Priyanka Chaturvedi also shared the photographs of the Mauris Noronha alongside CM Eknath Shinde former Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and Fadnavis’s wife Amruta Fadnavis, a banker, social worker singer and celebrity.
