Curfew in 2 Maharashtra towns after murder of Shiv Sena leader by one Shahrukh’s gang owing to personal enmity

Shivsena leader Shama Pehelwan Nandvanshi was allegedly murdered by one Shahrukh and his supporters due to personal enmity.

In Maharashtra’s Amravati district, murder and violence had led to an indefinite curfew in the twin towns of Achalpur and Paratwada. As per reports, a Shivsena leader Shama Pehelwan Nandwanshi was murdered, following which violence and tension have ensued in the area.

A local Shivsena leader, 44-year-old Nandvanshi was reportedly murdered by one Shahrukh and his friends yesterday. As per reports, Nandvanshi had some personal enmity with one Shahrukh from Muglaipura in Paratwada. They had even fought some days ago where Nandwanshi had allegedly threatened Shahrukh with a knife. Nandvanshi was reportedly called by Shahrukh to the Timber Market check post yesterday morning to settle the issue. Upon reaching there, Nandvanshi was attacked with knives by Shahrukh and five other people. He died on the spot.

Following Nandvanshi’s death, his angry supporters had taken to the streets and started attacking shops which led to violence and clashes between two groups. Two persons, named Saif Ali and Abdul Atiq have been killed in the violence so far. As police feared communal tension in the area, they have enforced a curfew and deployed additional forces in the twin towns. Several people have also been injured in the clashes.

Local reports have stated that to avoid further violence and riots, riot control forces have been deployed around Paratwada, Achalpur, and surrounding areas. Paratwada rural SP Dr Hari Balaji has informed that the situation is under control presently. Two of the six persons accused in Shama Nandvanshi’s murder and violence have been detained but the police have refused to give their names.
