Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday, April 19 said that culprits involved in lynching of three men in Palghar district will be brought to justice.

“The Palghar incident has been acted upon. The police have arrested all those accused who attacked the 2 sadhus, 1 driver, and the police personnel, on the day of the crime itself. Nobody guilty in this heinous crime and shameful act will be spared and they will be brought to justice in the strongest way possible,” the CM said in late-night tweets posted from Twitter handle @CMOMaharashtra.

State Home Minister Anil Deshmukh has already announced a high-level inquiry into the incident.

Their vehicle was stopped near a village in Palghar district. The trio was dragged out of their car and beaten to death with sticks by a mob on suspicion that they were thieves.

The deceased were identified as Chikne Maharaj Kalpavrukshagiri (70), Sushilgiri Maharaj (35), and their car driver Nilesh Telgade (30).
