In Dadar, the MNS workers gathered outside a P.N. Gadgil Jewellers outlet forcing them to remove the Gujarati signboard the management had put up. The same group then headed towards Mahim where they protested in front of Hotel Shoba and forced them to remove the signboard as well. These acts are directed against the rights of a business to put up signboards in any language of their choice. Assistant Commissioner of Police Sunil Deshmukh said in a statement, “Two separate offenses of illegal gathering under section 135 of Maharashtra Police Act have been lodged against the MNS workers at Dadar and Mahim police stations accordingly. Police have arrested at least seven MNS activists in connection with illegal gathering at Mahim,” he said.
