Mob allegedly sets police vehicles on fire, vandalises Trombay Police Station

Recent tweets by ANI stated that the mob also vandalised Trombay Police Station in Mumbai.

Seven more people were arrested today in connection with the attack on a police station in suburban Trombay yesterday.

The same day, Arvind was arrested and booked under section 295-A (deliberate and malicious acts, meant to outrage religious feelings or any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs) of the IPC along with sections of the Information Technology Act.

Angered by a morphed photograph, a mob of angry men set a police vehicle on fire on March 19 and damaged two other vehicles parked outside a police station.


The police have registered a case against 150 unidentified persons in the incident and more arrests are likely in the case, officials said.

The accused Arvind Chinwa (20) had put up an objectionable morphed picture of a religious structure on Facebook after which a group of men from Trombay protested and complained about it to police at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Earlier, police arrested 17 persons, including an AIMIM corporator Shahnawaz Sarfaraz Hussain, after a riot broke out in Cheeta Camp. The State Reserve Police Force was summoned to take control of the situation. AIMIM corporator Shahnawaz Shaikh, who is believed to have instigated the mob, was among those arrested.

Meanwhile, security has been stepped up around the police station with around 100 armed policemen deployed to prevent any incidents.
