Last week, Thackeray had carried out a anti-toll collection agitation where scores of MNS workers held protests across the state demanding its abolition.
Thackeray, who had left his home in Dadar in central Mumbai was stopped in Chembur and detained by police while he was heading towards the Vashi toll booth as part of the stir. He was later released.
Maria took over as the Mumbai Police Commissioner on Sunday and stressed on adopting zero tolerance towards street crimes while describing urban terrorism and organised crime as challenges before the force.
