Nine persons were on Tuesday arrested and taken into custody for vandalizing one of the arrested girl’s uncle’s clinic. It is not clear yet whether these people are from Shiv Sainiks or not.
In an incident that has reignited the debate over free speech in India, two girls (names withheld) were arrested in Palghar near Mumbai for questioning the shutdown in the city on the day of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray’s funeral on a social networking site facebok.
They were later released on bail after providing a surety of Rs15,000 each.
Two thousand odd Shiv Sainiks had ransacked a hospital owned by the uncle of one of the girls.
