BJP MP from Pune, where a techie was bludgeoned to death on Monday allegedly by members of a Hindutva outfit, on Thursday said some repercussions to the Facebook post derogatory of Shivaji and Bal Thackeray was “natural”.

“What appeared on Facebook was very painful. Some amount of repercussions was natural,” Anil Shirole told reporters outside Parliament.

The trigger for the attack on Shaikh Mohasin Sadiq (28) was apparently uploading of derogatory pictures of warrior king Shivaji and late Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray on Facebook by unknown persons, which also led to a protest bandh on Sunday.

At least seven persons who are said to be linked to Hindu Rashtra Sena have been arrested in this connection.

When asked for comments on the involvement of Hindu Rashtra Sena, the BJP MP said, “We will have to find out who are all involved in the matter. Police is probing”.

He said Pune is a peaceable city and BJP workers are  working to maintain peace in the town.

Sadiq worked in the IT department of a textile firm in  Pune. He was thrashed with sticks at Bankar Colony by the accused and succumbed to his injuries during treatment at a hospital, police said.
