Mumbai: Maharashtra Home Minister R R
Patil on Monday said he had sought inputs from the state`s
intelligence department regarding the claims by LeT operative
David Coleman Headley on his plans to eliminate Shiv Sena
chief Bal Thackeray.

Patil told reporters that he had sought information
pertaining to Headley`s claims on Thackeray and about his
visit to Shiv Sena Bhavan in Mumbai.
The home minister said security of Thackeray family,
and that of Sena Bhavan, is reviewed periodically and
appropriate steps have been taken.

Meanwhile, Patil said former Additional SP (Pune
Rural), Maithili Jha, had submitted the investigation report
into the alleged rape of a trainee woman constable at Kolhapur
Police Training School about two months back.
Maharashtra government had ordered a high-level probe
following complaints by a few trainee women constables at the
police training school of sexual harassment by their seniors.

"We have asked Pune Police Commissioner Meera
Borwankar for her opinion on the report," Patil said, adding
he had asked the DGP to review the cost of security for the
cricket World Cup and the recently concluded IPL matches in
the state.
