Shiv Sena verdict: Cops step up patrolling, increase vigil across Pune district

With the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court set to deliver a verdict on the dispute between the two warring factions of the Shiv Sena Thursday, police deployment and patrolling have been stepped up from Wednesday night in the three police jurisdictions in the Pune district — Pune City, Pune Rural and Pimpri-Chinchwad.

“We are keeping a close watch on the situation across our jurisdiction, especially at sensitive locations.” said a senior police officer.

Another officer said, “There are directives in place from the Maharashtra police headquarters to all the police jurisdictions across the state to remain on alert and increase vigil on the backdrop of the Supreme Court judgement expected on Thursday.”

The Constitutional Bench is expected to deliver its verdict on the disqualification plea of 16 MLAs of the Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde-led faction of Shiv Sena. The MLAs, including Chief Minister Shinde himself, were sent disqualification notices for not attending a party meeting convened by the then chief minister Uddhav Thackeray, despite a party whip in place.

A five-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court, comprising Chief Justice of India D Y Chandrachud and Justices M R Shah, Krishna Murari, Hima Kohli, and P S Narasimha, on March 16 concluded the hearing and reserved its verdict on a batch of pleas filed by both Sena groups.
