On June 22, Saturday, several female activists from Shiv Sena removed illegal mannequins from some streets and shops in Mumbai. The action by the women's wing comes after the Shiv Sena-ruled Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) recently asked garment shop owners to not put up mannequins displaying lingerie without BMC's permission.

Around 30 female activists from Sena's local unit marched to some streets in Vile Parle and removed illegal mannequins hanging from trees and placed outside shops.

Earlier, Shiv Sena corporator Sheetal Mhatre had said that women know where to buy lingerie and there’s no need to advertise it. Mhatre asserted that there is a proper way to display the same and in some places, the mannequins busts are hanging on tree branches which makes it “very embarrassing for women”.

The activists also asked the shop owners to remove such mannequins inside their outlets. Meanwhile, the activists are planning to take care of the issue in other parts of the city in a similar fashion.
