A senior Mumbai police confirmed that Pandey has written to the CISF director general to look into the role of the security personnel when Somaiya was allegedly attacked by Shiv Sena workers outside Khar police station. Somaiya had gone to the police station to meet Amravati MP Navneet Rana and her husband, MLA Ravi Rana, who were arrested for inciting enmity by insisting on reciting Hanuman Chalisa outside chief minister Uddhav Thackrey’s Bandra residence, Matroshree.

On Monday, Somaiya led a delegation of BJP lawmakers from Maharashtra to apprise minister of state (MoS)-Home Nityanand Rai and Union home secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla about the attack on him and the ‘deteriorating’ law and order situation in the state,

In February this year, Somaiya asked the Centre to review his security because, according to him, he has become a target of the Shiv Sena-led coalition government in Maharashtra.
