On Tuesday, the Maharashtra Government ordered the Police to probe against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Unmesh Patil who had assaulted an ex-army man in 2016. This move comes after BJP raised the issue of Shiv Sena workers assaulting an ex-navy officer. Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh tweeted regarding this issue. He wrote: “In 2016, the then BJP legislator and his accomplices had attacked former army man Sonu Mahajan. The then BJP Government did not give him justice. Since I have received various petitions in this regard, I have asked the Police officials to investigate this matter”.
