Thane: A case has been signed up against six staff members of a toll plaza here in Maharashtra for presumably declining a Congress MLA’s cars and truck to pass without paying toll cost and manhandling his motorist, authorities said on Thursday.The event occurred at Padgha toll plaza in Thane around 10.30 pm on Wednesday when Congress MLA Hiraman Khoskar was going back to Nashik from Mumbai, they said.
Khoskar represents Igatpuri seat in Nashik.After the event, the MLA’s chauffeur lodged a cops grievance, based on which a case was signed up against the 6 toll booth staffers under Indian Penal Code Sections 143 (unlawful assembly) and 323 (willingly causing hurt).
No arrest has actually been made up until now, an authorities from Padgha police station said.Khoskar declared that when his automobile reached the toll plaza, some booth staffers stopped the vehicle. His chauffeur notified them that the MLA was in the car, which also had the legislator’s sticker label.
But, the toll booth staff members allegedly demanded his ID card and before it could be revealed, they abused and hit the motorist, he said.They insisted on payment of toll charge prior to permitting the car to continue and stated “we don’t acknowledge MLAs and MPs”, the legislator declared.
After an argument for some time, his automobile was allowed to go, Khoskar stated and required strict action versus such “big-headed” toll plaza workers.” If this is the case with us, one can imagine how they would be acting with the common man,” he said.
