Thane, 17 September: A case has been registered against six personnel of a Toll Plaza in Thane, Maharashtra, for not letting the Congress MLA’s car go without toll payment and manhandling their driver. Police said on Thursday that Congress (Congress) MLA Hiraman Khoskar was returning to Nashik from Mumbai, when the incident took place at the toll plaza of Thane at around 10:30 pm on Wednesday. Khoskar is an MLA from Igatpuri seat in Nashik. After the incident, the MLA’s driver lodged a police complaint. After this, a case was registered against the six personnel of the toll booth in the relevant sections.
The officer of Padgha police station said that no arrest has been made so far. Khoskar alleged that when the car reached the toll plaza, some booth personnel stopped the car. On this, the driver told them that the MLA is in the car, which also has an assembly sticker. He told that the booth workers asked for his ID card. Before he could show the card, personnel started abusing and beating the driver.
