Activist hurls slipper at Ajit Pawar

August 12, 2014 21:18 IST

A female pro-Vidarbha activist allegedly threw a slipper at Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar at an event in Chamorshion Tuesday.

As Pawar concluded his speech with the slogan ‘Jai Hind, Jai Maharashtra,’ the activist, identified as Shobha Maski, who was present among the audience, allegedly threw the slipper in his direction, but it missed him.

The police immediately whisked Shobha Maski away and detained her. Pawar was in Chamorshi to address a Nationalist Congress Party rally along with Maharashtra Home Minister R R Patil and Maharashtra Nationalist Congress Party president Sunil Tatkare who were also present.

Despite repeated phone calls, the police remained tightlipped on the incident.
