Day-light murders in Maharashtra challenge law and order

- Advertisement -

The entire city of Mumbai and Maharashtra has been shaken by the firing incident in Dahisar. In this incident, both Abhishek Ghosalkar and the accused, Mauris Noronha, alias Mauris Bhai, who opened fire, died. One after another, two murders in a series show how the state has turned lawless. There was no remorse or fear while shooting or killing each other. The son of former Shiv Sena (UBT) MLA Vinod Ghosalkar, Abhishek Ghosalkar, was shot in Dahisar, in the northern suburbs of Mumbai. Abhishek was a former corporator, and a person known to him fired three bullets at him over some dispute. Ghosalkar is known to be a youth leader of the Shiv Sena (UBT) and was a two-term corporator from ward number 7.

Abhishek, who is also the Vibhag Pramukh of Shiv Sena (UBT) in the Dahisar area, is known to be close to Aaditya Thackeray, the son of former Maharashtra CM and Shiv Sena (UBT) head Uddhav Thackeray. Abhishek’s wife was also a corporator from Ward No. 1. Abhishesh came to politics due to nepotism; his father is a veteran leader and he gave his son a chance. They have done enormous work in their constituency but the son failed to earn the status of his father. The offspring of politicians are now spreading their wings but most of them are at some calculated risk due to the political and power rivalry.

Mauris Noronha, who likes to refer to himself as Mauris Bhai, is a 49 -year-old businessman who resides in Borivali. Noronha, who earlier worked in Dubai and in the United States, had set up a finance business in Borivali. If you take an auto, you will find his poster behind every rickshaw. He was very good at self-promoting. Mauris was good at power play and he had dominance in his area. Mauris had gained substantial press coverage for his social work during the pandemic and was felicitated by the then Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari as a COVID warrior.

Noronha, who describes himself as a philanthropist and social worker, was also keen on contesting the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation elections. Mauris Noronha shot Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Abhishek Ghosalkar today at Dahisar in Mumbai, when Abhishekh and Mauris were live on Facebook.

Mauris Noronha invited Abhishek to an event because Abhishek and Mauris had a dispute in the past but recently their argument was resolved. During the event, he took him inside his cabin and shot him. He fired three bullets’ shots using his revolver. Later, he also shoots himself.

In 2022, Mauris Noronho was arrested by the MHB Colony Police for allegedly blackmailing, raping, cheating, and threatening a 48-year-old homemaker with Rs 88 lakh since 2014. But Mauris was enjoying the support of BJP and its tall leaders

In the past few weeks, purported photos of Chief Minister Eknath Shinde and Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar and their sons meeting individuals with criminal backgrounds have surfaced. The law-and-order situation in Maharashtra is worsening day by day. As usual, the Mumbai Crime Branch has taken over the investigation and the investigation will focus on various aspects such as the source of the weapon, Noronha’s state at the time, and questioning witnesses. Both Ghosalkar and Noronha had personal issues, but Facebook Live was meant to reconcile their differences for the betterment of the IC Colony area. The police are examining Noronha’s alcohol consumption and have collected his blood samples. Let’s see what comes out of the bag.
