Kirit Somaiya attacked in Mumbai

Mumbai: Suspected Shiv Sena activists attacked former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Kirit Somaiya’s vehicle here late on Saturday April 23 following which he was hurt.

The incident happened shortly before midnight when Somaiya had come to meet the arrested couple, Navneet Rana and her husband Ravi Rana. The Mumbai Police on Saturday evening arrested Independent Amravati MP Navneet Rana and her husband Badnera MLA Ravi Rana, soon after they suo-moto dropped their plans to storm Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s residence.

BJP bigwigs including Leader of Opposition Devendra Fadnavis, Ashish Shelar and other strongly condemned the attack and demanded immediate arrest of the culprits involved in the attack.

Somaiya, who is accorded Z security, was seen in his vehicle with blood on his jaw and the glass panes of his car shattered in the attack.

Fadnavis said that Somaiya had expressed apprehension to the Khar Police that a large mob was waiting outside and could attack him, and requested them to clear them.

However, the police did not heed his warnings and allowed the attacks to take place despite prohibitory orders clamped in the vicinity.

He said he would write and speak to the Home Minister Dilip Walse-Patil demanding stringent action against the perpetrators, and warned the Maha Vikas Aghadi government of consequences.
