The Pimpri-Chinchwad police have registered an offence against an unidentified individual for allegedly throwing a footwear towards Maharashtra opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis’s car.
The incident took place near Purna Nagar when he came to the Purna Nagar area for the inauguration of a development project. PM Narendra Modi was in Pune for the inauguration of the Pune Metro project and other events in Pune.
The event faced skirmishes as the NCP and BJP leaders got into a spat with sloganeering. While the NCP accused the BJP of corruption in Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC), the BJP shouted slogans in favour Modi.
The police had to resort to mild lathi-charge to bring the situation under control. When Fadnavis arrived for the programme, a footwear was hurled at his vehicle near the entry gate of the venue. However, the footwear reportedly flew over his car and fell on his path.
The police have registered an FIR at Chikhli police station IPC Section 336 (rash or negligent act to endanger human life or the personal safety of others).
