After the riot-like situations in Pune that led to the death of an IT manager in Hadapsar area, the Aam Aadmi Party, Maharashtra has written to Home Minister R R Patil requesting an urgent inquiry and a trial in a fast-track court regarding Mohsin Shaikh's murder and to take immediate action against such similar crimes. The AAP will be hosting a Peace March in Mumbai at Carter Road at 8 June 2014, asking for justice for the murdered youth.
The letter demands decisive action in banning radical religious outfits with immediate effect and proposes further work towards community policing through Mohalla Sabha model propagated by Retired IPS officer Suresh Khopde in Bhiwandi after the 1984 riots. The AAP also demands ban on Hindu Rashtra sena and other such groups, irrespective of what community they represent. They have asked the state to provide financial aid to the victim's family, as well as provide a secure job to his younger brother Mobin Shaikh.
"It is important to initiate peace keeping activities, aiming at keeping all the communities in Maharashtra together," said an emailed press statement.
