Women’s organisation protested against Shiv Sena MLA Vinod Ghosalkar and his son, corporator Abhishek Ghosalkar outside Dahisar Police station for mentally harassing Sheetal Mhatre and demanded a complaint to be filed against them.
Shiv Sena MLA Vinod Ghosalkar refuted all claims made against him by Sheetal Mhatre and former Mayor Shubha Raul. Ghosalkar also clarified that he is a Shiv sainik and there is no place for such acts there. Further, Ghosalkar stated that he is ready to face the investigation whenever demanded.
Ghosalkar said, “Senior party leaders Gajanan Kirtikar and Subhash Desai were planning to conduct a probe over this issue. However, they were unable to investigate the matter as both Raul and Mhatre were absent.”
Earlier Sheetal Mhatre had submitted her resignation to the party president Uddhav Thackeray. Both Raul and Mhatre were miffed as they were unable to meet Thackeray despite being given an appointment to have a discussion pertaining to the Ghosalkar issue.
Sheetal Mhatre’s brother Bunty Patil alleged that Ghosalkar was planning to hold a women’s procession at his sister house. After hearing this news, Sheetal’s started getting high blood pressure and later she was admitted to hospital.
National Commission for Women have forwarded a letter to the Mumbai Police Commissioner Satyapal Singh and asked him to submit a report within 10 days.
