Pune firing: Chavan meets Governor
Mumbai: Amid growing outrage, Maharashtra Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan met Governor K Shankaranarayanan, Friday, to discuss the controversial police firing on farmers in Pune.
The CM met the Governor on being summoned by the Raj Bhavan. Importantly, leaders of the Opposition parties had held a meeting with Narayananan today morning and demanded that the state government be dismissed over the issue.
The state government has already ordered a judicial probe into the incident and said the guilty will be punished in accordance with the law.
Meanwhile, two Pune police officials have been suspended over the firing incident.
Three persons were killed and scores injured in police firing in Maval near Pune on Tuesday following the protests over a closed pipeline project to supply water to the industrial township of Pimpri-Chinchwad town, near Pune city.
Controversy erupted after a video footage of the incident showed some policemen apparently aiming their guns and shooting at unarmed protesters.
