A domestic help working at ‘Matoshree’, the heavily-guarded bungalow of Shiv Sena president Uddhav Thackeray in suburban Bandra, was injured when his colleague allegedly attacked him with a knife, the police said on Monday.
“The incident occurred on the night of November 14 when the accused, identified as Sevak, tried to kill another servant, Pandit with a kitchen knife,” DCP (Zone VIII) Virendra Mishra said.
He said Sevak, who was also injured in the scuffle, was arrested on the same night from the house, and the provocation behind the attack was being investigated.
The DCP said a maid, named Manda, also suffered injuries when she tried to intervene and separate the duo. “Sevak and Pandit were admitted to Bhaba Hospital and are reportedly out of danger”, he added.
‘Matoshree’, situated at Kala Nagar, is probably among the heavily-guarded places in Mumbai and the incident has raised concerns about internal security.
Police have charged the accused under Section 326 (voluntarily causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means) of the IPC and he has been remanded in police custody.
