The man called Raju Shinde, also an office bearer of Shiv Sena’s film wing, Chitrapat Sena, was the owner of a security agency in Mumbai. He was seated in the open when he was shot. He was rushed to Nanavati hospital after being shot in the stomach and arms by two assailants on a motorcycle who managed to escape. The police said Raju Shinde, 45, has been rushed to hospital after being shot in the stomach and arm by two men on a motorcycle, who were chased briefly before managing to escape. Mr Shinde’s company was contracted to provide guards on location.
“Raju is a committed Shiv Sainik. We condemn the attack. Claims of gang war are baseless’ said Arwind Bhosle, a spokesperson for the Shiv Sena.
Senior police officer Fateh Singh Patil said, “After the firing, the assailants were chased by another security guard and both attackers ran away leaving their motorcycle in the jungle of Aarey. We have seized the bike.”
The police are now investigating the matter after nabbing the motorcycle.
