"Family members were pushed, his house was cordoned off for three hours. He has an abrasion on his left hand, he already had an existing injury in his hand which was tried to tear apart. His arrest was not informed to his wife but his arrest punchnama says she was informed. He was pulled by his belt, and was beaten on the back of his spine. He appeals to citizens of India to support him," he asserted.

Advocate and BJP MLA Rahul Nawrekar who's at the Alibag police station termed the incident destructive for a democracy. He further added that the Maharashtra government has tried to shake media which is considered as the fourth pillar.
