Mumbai: A Shiv Sena local youth wing leader has been caught on video assaulting a vendor.
The incident took place in Vile Parle (West) area, where the Shiv Sena youth wing leader, Sunil Mahadik, is seen clearly on CCTV footage, assaulting the shop assistant.
Sources say that the incident took place over a food order for an event. Mahadik had called up the shop, verbally abused the victim and demanded that he send an order of a hundred ‘vada pav’ for free for a local cricket match. When the vendor refused he went down to the store and assaulted him.
This is the second case of such an assault by a Shiv Sena member within a week. On Friday, in a similar case, a Shiv Sena functionary was caught on camera assaulting a female police officer.
The Mumbai police have registered a case on the basis of video evidence. Sources say that the Shiv Sena has dismissed Sunil Mahadik from his position as a youth wing leader.
