The Mumbai Police on June 25 imposed Section 144 of Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) in the city, which disallows the gathering of five or more persons. The prohibitory orders will remain in force till July 10.

Owing to escalating tensions between Maharashtra’s ruling coalition partner Shiv Sena and its internal rebel group, earlier in the day, the police in neighbouring Thane district, which is a bastion of Shiv Sena’s rebel leader Eknath Shinde, imposed Section 144. The order in Thane will remain in force till June 30.

Yesterday Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray’s key aide and Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut issued a warning to the rebel MLAs, suggesting that they would have to face the fury of party workers after returning to Mumbai.

He said: “Outside Maharashtra, you are eagles. But the people’s patience is wearing thin. Right now, Shiv Sainiks have not come out on the streets. If they do, the streets will be on fire.”
