Suspected MNS workers ransack theatre screening Bhojpuri film
Thane: Over a dozen suspected workers of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) vandalised a theatre here on Tuesday, protesting against the screening of a Bhojpuri film, police said.
The group of party workers barged into the cinema hall named `Chitralaya`, which screened the film `Ek Bihari Sau Pe Bhari` and then started vandalising it, they said.
Following the incident, there was chaos inside the theatre as members of the audience ran out. However, the situation was brought under control immediately, police claimed.
Police have registered an offence under various sections of the IPC.
The incident has taken place against the backdrop of MNS chief Raj Thackeray`s threat to brand Biharis as "infiltrators" and force them out of Maharashtra if authorities in Bihar took legal action against Mumbai policemen, who had picked up a teenager, involved in Azad Maidan violence, without informing their counterparts in that state.
