Mumbai : Four people including Shiv Sena's Kamlesh Kadam have been arrested by the Mumbai Police in connection with attack on a retired Navy officer today.

An FIR had been registered in Samta Nagar Police Station, Mumbai against Kamlesh Kadam and his 8-10 associates for beating up a former Navy officer.

62-year-old retired Navy officer Madan Sharma was beaten up by alleged Shiv Sena workers after he forwarded a cartoon on Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on WhatsApp on Friday.

Madan Sharma told PTI that he was attacked by 8 to 10 people after he received threatening calls for a message that he had forwarded.

“I have worked for the nation my entire life. A government like this should not exist,” said Sharma.

The daughter of the retired officer also slammed the Mumbai Police saying the cops came to their residence and insisted on taking her father with them.
