Earlier too, MNS workers have assaulted a man for allegedly making derogatory comments against Raj Thackeray on April 7. Instead of taking action against the accused, police booked a case against the victim, identified as Vijay Vare, but no case has been registered against MNS workers.
It is to be known that on April 6 Vijay Vare allegedly made abusive comments on one of the pictures, shared by supporters of Raj Thackeray of his Gudi Padwa rally held earlier on social networking site Facebook. The next day, a group of MNS workers barged into his house in Ghatkopar East and thrashed him. Vare was made to do sit-ups and apologise.
