They have also launched a hunt for Amin Shaikh, who is also a former vice-president of DCB. Amin escaped from Dehu Road after the incident.Local leaders of the NCP, BJP, Shiv Sena, MNS and Congress had decided to launch a hunger strike on Saturday, demanding that police should book Amin under the Maharashtra Control Of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). But they cancelled the strike plan on police request.Around 10 am on Sunday, the Shaikh brothers took out a morcha against the politicians, when their supporters threw stones at the office of Dehu Road NCP president Mickey Kochar and hotel of Dehu Road Shiv Sena president Raju Shelar. They also forcibly closed a few shops.Later, the politicians lodged a complaint against the Shaikhs. Ali was booked on charges of gathering mob illegally, using abusive language and creating obstruction to traffic. "He was giving shelter illegally to people from the north Indian states and also from Bangladesh in the Gandhi Nagar slums, which is surrounded by military area. He was also providing ration cards to illegal migrants. His name also figured in criminal activities. So we had demanded police action against him," said Kochhar.Police inspector Nitin Gokavi said Amin had 28 serious crimes against his name, including those of murder and rioting.The Congress, meanwhile, denied any connection with Amin. "We had recently suspended Shaikh from the party following his criminal activities," its leader Haji Malang said.
