Pune techie murder: BJP MP says some repercussions to derogatory FB post natural

New Delhi: BJP MP from Pune, where a techie was bludgeoned to death on Monday allegedly by members of a Hindutva outfit, said on Thursday some repercussions to the Facebook post derogatory of Shivaji and Bal Thackeray was "natural".

"What appeared on Facebook was very painful. Some amount of repercussions was natural," Anil Shirole told reporters outside Parliament.

The trigger for the attack on Shaikh Mohasin Sadiq (28) was apparently uploading of derogatory pictures of warrior king Shivaji and late Shiv Sena supremo Bal Thackeray on Facebook by unknown people, which also led to a protest bandh on Sunday.

Several people who are said to be linked to Hindu Rashtra Sena have been arrested in this connection.

When asked for comments on the involvement of Hindu Rashtra Sena, the BJP MP said, "We will have to find out who are all involved in the matter. Police is probing".

He said Pune is a peace-loving city and BJP workers are trying to maintain peace in the town.

Sadiq worked in the IT department of a textile firm in Pune. He was thrashed with sticks at Bankar Colony by the accused and succumbed to his injuries during treatment at a hospital, police said.
