On Tuesday, the Shiv Sena corporators and workers allegedly went on a rampage, destroying furniture and breaking windowpanes at the Standing Committee room in the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation and the mayor’s office.
The FIR has been registered against Sub-Inspector Vijay Chavhan and constable A Vhaskoti, posted at Waliv police crime team on September 17 under Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act, 1985, for allegedly abetting a criminal conspiracy.
Addressing a gathering at Vashi in Navi Mumbai, Fadnavis said: “Instead of worrying about mass entry (of Opposition leaders in the BJP), people need to introspect what’s causing the mass exodus. We are going to win the elections, but we won’t let it get to our head.”
“It has rained more than 400 mm between Tuesday and Wednesday. There was a high tide on Wednesday evening as well. Although our pumps are working on full power, the water is not receding and the rain has been relentless,” said Baliram Pawar, Vasai Virar City Municipal Commissioner.
Following the tussle in General Body Meeting (GBM) of the House where opposition leaders brought up the condition of the Chhatrapati Shivaji hospital in Kalwa, commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal is said to have asked for time to look into the matter before the next sitting of the GBM.
Officials said it took over three hours to douse the fire, which started at 7 am. The deceased have been identified as CISF personnel N A Nayak (48), M Paswan (33) and SP Kushwaha (36), and ONGC employee C N Rao (50), police said.
