Shiv Sainiks in the city observed a bandh to protest the desecration of the statue of late Meenatai Thackeray in Mumbai. Shops throughout the city kept their shutters down as Shiv Sainiks called for a bandh. Except for a few stray incidents of stone-pelting, the bandh was a peaceful one. The Navi Mumbai Police, under the dynamic leadership of Commissioner of Police Vijay Kamble, came out in full force to ensure that peace in the city was not affected. Vashi, KK, Belapur, Panvel and other nodes observed a total shut down.
