Its been over a month and so far the state government has not been able to crack the case. So far no arrests have been made and the state government looks clueless. Thackeray alleged that the killing could be a 'state-sponsored' one.
"Since there is no breakthrough in the murder case of Narendra Dabholkar, the needle of suspicion points towards the state government," he said, after Dabholkar's daughter called on him at his residence.
Thackeray praised the Mumbai police saying that there were very efficient and that they were capable of solving the case. "But is had become a fashion to transfer investigations to the CBI. If that is the case then what is the need of the local police," he said.
He also questioned the state government and said that had the government cleared the anti- superstition bill earlier, Dabholkar's murder could have been prevented.
The anti-superstition bill was recently passed by the state government after protests and public outpour in the wake of his murder.
