"To all those shouting Pakistan Zindabad slogans in support of PFI in Pune.. Chun chun ke marenge.. Itna yaad rakana!!! #BanPfi," Rane tweeted.

Later, Rane shared a video of him urging the Maharashtra government to action again the culprits.

Another BJP MLA Ram Satpute sought a strict action against those who raised slogans, and said the Pune police should arrest them.

Chief minister Eknath Shinde said such slogans will not be tolerated in the state, while his deputy Devendra Fadnavis said those who indulged in this sloganeering will not be spared.

The video shows that the slogan was raised a couple of times when the PFI activists were being bundled into a police vehicle as part of their detention during the protest held on Friday.

During the protest, the police detained around 40 protesters. The Pune police said they were investigating the matter. "We have already registered a case against the PFI members for unlawful assembly and we are looking into the slogans matter," said Sagar Patil, deputy commissioner of police, news agency PTI reported.
