Accused yet to be held

A local Shiv Sena leader was booked on Friday for allegedly molesting a woman in his neighbourhood in Kashimira. However the accused identified as- Mahesh Shinde who is Shiv Sena’s shakha pramukh from the Hatkesh area of Kashimira is yet to be arrested. 

The action followed after a 39-year-old woman registered a complaint against Shinde. In her complaint to the police, the woman has stated that Shinde who was in an inebriated state had passed lewd comments to  her on 25, August.  After the intervention of her husband, a heated exchange of words ensued which took a violent turn when Shinde and his cronies mounted an assault on husband, alleged the complainant. The entire sequence of events had been captured on a mobile phone, the clip of which has been handed over to the investigating team.

 “Due to Shinde’s influential contacts, the police did not register a complaint and since then she and her family were being subjected to harassment and threats.” the letter states. Taking a serious note of the issue, newly appointed Senior Police Inspector Vaibhav Shingare registered a FIR against Shinde. “We have booked the accused under sections 354, 323, 504  and 506 of the Indian Penal Code. Investigations were underway and further action including arrest would follow.” confirmed Shingare. The complainant resides in a housing complex outside which the accused politician has illegally constructed his party office. Mahesh Shinde had recently launched an agitation outside the main administrative building of the Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC) demanding demolition of illegal structures that had cropped up on reserved plots in Kashimira.
