The Boisar police are waiting for situation to come back to normal in Palghar that will help people come forward and give them leads on the remaining vandalizer of the Palghar-based hospital of Shaheen's uncle, Dr Abdul Dhada.


The hospital was vandalized on November 18 for which the Palghar police had arrested 10 Shiv Sainiks while few more are yet to be arrested.

Following public outrage, both the cases - against the two girls and the vandalisation case - were transferred to the sub divisional police officer for Boisar on Tuesday.

"We are waiting for things to return to normalcy. We are hoping that eye witnesses would come forward soon to provide us information on the other people who were involved," said Vijaykant Sagar, sub divisional police officer (Boisar).

"The complainant has mentioned 40 to 50 unidentified persons who were involved in vandalizing the hospital. We have arrested 10 persons and are trying to get evidences to nail other persons involved," said Sagar adding, "It was due to the bandh and the tension prevailing in the area that the investigations pertaining to the vandalisation incident did not gather pace."

The police said all the accused in the case have been booked for unlawful assembly, rioting, act endangering life and personal safety of others, causing damage to property and for house trespass. They were also booked under relevant sections of the Criminal Law Amendment Act and Maharashtra Medical Act.
