What is the whole matter?
The victim Madan Sharma (65) is a resident of Kandivali, who allegedly shared a cartoon on WhatsApp group to members of his society, in which Thackeray was seen folding hands in front of photographs of Congress leader Sonia Gandhi and Nationalist Congress Party President Sharad Pawar. Her daughter Sheila Sharma said, however, no one in the society responded and someone sent the cartoon to Kadam.
“The cartoon branch Chief Kamlesh Kadam found it objectionable and several Shiv Sena people along with him attacked Sharma in Kandivali east on Friday,” said an officer at Samta Nagar police station. Around 8-10 people in the group, who were Shiv Sena people, attacked Sharma in the society’s premises.
