The two Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) corporators who last week made the chief engineer of the roads department hold a placard saying he was responsible for the city’s potholes surrendered before the Shivaji Park police on Saturday evening.
A day earlier, the police had gone to their houses to arrest them, but the two were found missing. MNS group leader Sandeep Deshpande and corporator Santosh Dhuri had been booked for wrongful restraint and criminal intimidation under the Indian Penal Code.
The two were granted bail on the spot. On October 6, MNS party workers led by Deshpande and Dhuri met the Chief Engineer, Roads, Sanjay Darade at his office in Worli. They asked Darade to accompany them to a spot between the Sena Bhawan and the Plaza Theatre in Dadar, where he was made to hold up a placard that read “I, the chief engineer of roads department, am responsible for potholes in the city. Citizens should take note of this.”
