Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray on Thursday reached the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office in Mumbai around 11:30 in the morning. Thackeray was accompanied by his family members including his wife and son Amit Thackeray. 

Ahead of the Thackeray’s inquiry, the Mumbai police imposed section 144 outside the ED office in Ballard Estate. The police have also imposed section 144 in areas including Marine Drive, MRA Marg, Dadar and Azad Maidan. 

On the account of preventive detention, the Mumbai police have detained several MNS workers including party’s spokesperson Sandeep Deshpande. Later, the Naupada police also detained Thane MNS President Avinash Jadhav. 

The ED had summoned Thackeray in connection with its probe regarding alleged irregularities in loan and equity investment made by Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Service (IL&FS) in Kohinoor CTNL - a company founded by Unmesh Joshi, son of senior Shiv Sena leader Manohar Joshi.

Earlier on August 19, Joshi appeared before ED and was grilled for seven-long-hours regarding the same case. The MNS had called for a ‘bandh’ in Thane. However, the same was called off after Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis warned MNS workers that state government will take action against those who disrupt the law.

Later, MNS decided to hold a silent protest outside the ED office in Mumbai.
