Days after their release, six Shiv Sena workers were arrested again on Tuesday by Mumbai Police after the addition of section 452 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) in the case registered against them for assaulting a 62-year-old retired navy officer. 

The section 452 - house, trespass after preparation of hurt, assault or wrongful restraint - of the IPC is non-bailable. Therefore, after its addition, six Shiv Sena workers were arrested again.

Earlier, they were granted bail on Saturday and were arrested after Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Atul Bhatkhalkar’s intervention. The BJP posted a video on his official twitter handle which caught the assault on ex-servicemen Madan Sharma. 

He was attacked by a group of Shiv Sena activists led by Kamlesh Kadam - shakha pramukh of party’s Kandivali branch in Mumbai - for forwarding a cartoon on WhatsApp which mocked the Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government. 

The accused were earlier booked under section 325 of the IPC for causing hurt. However, the offence registered under this section is bailable and the addition of section 452 makes in non-bailable. 

This comes after Sharma met Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari at Raj Bhavan demanding the imposition of president rule in the state. He also announced his association with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). 

The 62-year-old ex-servicemen also said that the former navy soldiers will control the 'gundagardi' and will not let it happen. 

Earlier, Sharma had demanded the resignation of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray saying that the Chief Minister should resign if he can't look after law and order.
