Mumbai: Raj Thackeray to be questioned by ED today, section 144 imposed in several areas

Raj Thackeray's Matoshree Construction and Unmesh Joshi had jointly invested Rs 421 crores to buy the NTPC owned Kohinoor Mill. The Kohinoor building project dealings had come under the scanner during the IL &FS scam case investigation.

Maharashtra Navanirman Sena chief Raj Thackeray is to be questioned by the Enforcement Directorate today. Anticipating a law and order situation by MNS supporters, the Mumbai police have deployed a large number of personnel in several areas.

The ED office in Mumbai has also been put under heavy police protection.

As per a report in Republic TV, section 144 has been imposed in Dadar, Shivaji Park, Marine Drive, MRA Marg police station and some other areas.

As per reports, Thackeray will be questioned at the ED office at Ballard Pier at around 10.30 am. Many of MNS workers and local leaders have been detained by the police beforehand to prevent any law and order issue.

Thackeray had appealed to his party workers not to create a ruckus and maintain peace. But the police have reportedly stated that they do not want to take any chances.

As per a report in India Today, MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande has been detained by Shivaji Park police. Another MNS leader has stated that they follow the orders of Raj Thackeray and since he has asked his cadre not to react they won’t.

Thackeray is to be questioned by the ED for his alleged involvement in the IL&FS case involving Kohinoor CTNL where he was a partner.

The Kohinoor building project dealings had come under the scanner during the IL &FS scam case investigation. IL&FS had reportedly given a loan to Kohinoor CTNL worth Rs 225 crores but later on, took a hit of Rs 135 crores. As per reports IL&FS’s total investments in Kohinoor CTNL stand at Rs 860 crores.

Unmesh Joshi, the son of former Maharashtra CM Manohar Joshi, had also been questioned by the ED. Unmesh Joshi is the founder of Kohinoor CTNL. In 2005, Raj Thackeray’s Matoshree Construction and Unmesh Joshi had jointly invested Rs 421 crores to buy the NTPC owned Kohinoor Mill.

The Kohinoor Mills was a 4.8-acre property. Raj Thackeray had eventually exited from the joint venture.

Another partner in Kohinoor CTNL, Rajendra Shirodkar was also questioned by the ED in the same case.
