Thane (Maharashtra): Stone were pelted by unknown persons at printing press of Saamana in Navi Mumbai and along with this ink was also thrown at its offices today in Thane.
According to Navi Mumbai Police Commissioner, Hemant Nagrale said some offenders threw stones the publication’s offices in Saanpada suburb.
Nagrale told media persons, “Investigations will be conducted and appropriate action taken against the accused.”
On other hand, some persons threw ink outside the office of Saamana in Thane town, the mouthpiece of the Shiv Sena.
Though officials declined comment, the provocation for the attacks stems from a cartoon published in the Saamana on Sunday, poking fun at the ongoing statewide stir by Marathas seeking reservation and other issues.
Whole Maratha community has taken strong objection to what it alleged were snide suggestions made in the Saamana cartoon.
