A two-member commission headed by retired judge justice J N Patel is probing into the causes of violence in Koregaon Bhima area on January 1, 2018, in which one person had died and several others were left injured.
Jayesh Prakash Shinde's affidavit said he had learned from villagers that a board with statements purporting a "false history" had been put up by persons from the Gaikwad family in Vadhu Budruk village on December 28, 2017, which had sparked the tension.
Based on inputs from a central intelligence agency, seven persons suspected to have illegally migrated to India and currently residing in Hadapsar area of Pune were recently brought to the Hadapsar police station for inquiry.
A board with the 'disputed history' of Govind Gopal was erected by the Gaikwad family in Vadhu Budruk on the intervening night of December 28 and 29, 2017, and was allegedly removed by members of the Maratha community. This led to an altercation -- one of the triggering factors that led to the violence.
