According to sources, the people, who were involved in the ruckus, were associated with Maharashtra Navanirman Sena (MNS) headed by Raj Thackeray. Though MNS officials overruled such reports saying that the party had no connection with the incident.
The incident occurred at Garden Foods and Wafers factory in suburban Borivli on Sunday, Jul 29 following a heated argument between a watchman of the factory and Ravindra More, a driver of MNS MLA Pravin Darekar.
The watchman had reportedly stopped More to enter a private road which runs through the factory where Rohan Sippy's crew were present for a movie shoot picturising on Khurana.
The lane passing through the compound is frequently used as a shortcut. But the watchman's decision to bar More from using it led to an altercation between the duo, stated police officials.
"Furious More left the scene but soon returned with around 10 to 15 MNS activists. The group saw the movie set in the premises and destroyed it. It was Sippy's set. The group also damaged many vehicles parked there. Two persons have sustained injuries in the incident and are currently undergoing treatment at Bhagwati Hospital," added the cops while enlightening the media personnel about the real reason behind the ruckus.
The mob have allegedly vandalised a total of twenty vehicles. Police took control of the region and started patrolling soon after the violence which shook all at the film set.
Meanwhile, additional commission of police (North region) Sunil Paraskar has been quoted as saying, "We have formed seven teams to trace the people involved in the Sunday afternoon incident. Already, we have detained several people for questioning in the case."
Police officials also informed that a complaint of rioting and causing damage to property is being registered at Kasturba Marg police station and the extent of the damage is being evaluated.
