Mumbai Latest News Updates Live: Maharashtra BJP on Wednesday demanded a CBI probe against Shiv Sena Minister Anil Parab for “misusing” his power to get Union Minister Narayan Rane arrested during the Jan Ashirwad Yatra in Konkan on Monday. BJP legislator and former minister Ashish Shelar said, “A video clip shows Shiv Sena’s Transport and Parliamentary Affairs Minister Anil Parab issuing orders to the police and the local administration to act against Rane.”

Stepping up his attack on the Shiv Sena a day after he was released on bail following his arrest over remarks in which he threatened to slap Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Union Minister Narayan Rane claimed that Sena leaders, including Thackeray, had made similar remarks in the past, and that no action was taken against them.

The Mumbai Police have closed the probe into the death of Disha Salian, who was briefly handling publicity for actor Sushant Singh Rajput, and died by suicide on June 8, 2020, a week before the actor’s death. Police sources said the probe was closed earlier this year as no evidence of foul play had been found in the case. The police also did not find evidence to support several allegations that were made last year on social media linking Salian’s death with that of Rajput, and claims that they were both murdered. Rajput, 34, was found hanging from the ceiling of a room in his Bandra flat on June 14, 2020.
