After a protest by the Dalit community against MNS MLA Ram Kadam’s alleged assault on three members of the community, a high-level inquiry headed by an assistant commissioner of police has been set up.

The Parksite police had on Monday registered a case against Kadam and his associates for allegedly assaulting Rohit Tambe (28), Ritesh Landage (27) and Ravindra More (38) under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code as well as the Atrocities Act . The trio had gone to question Kadam about his claims of getting ashes of Lord Gautam Buddha to Mumbai so that people could pay homage.

On Tuesday, the police set up an inquiry committee headed by ACP Ramdas Gaikwad, Vikhroli division, to look into the matter. “We are scanning the footage of CCTV camera placed near Kadam’s residence.

Three MNS party workers have been arrested. We have booked them, as well as Kadam, for unlawful assembly and assault,” said Gaikwad.    mumbai.newsline@expressindia.com
