NCP MLA from Mumbra in Thane Dr Jitendra Awhad survived attack after his car was pelted with stones in Sangli on Sunday.

Awhad had gone there to attend a program organised by radical outfit Sambhaji Brigade to protest against Maharashtra Bhushan award to historian Babasaheb Purandare, who has written popular plays about Shivaji Maharaj.

The attackers were from Shiv Pratishthan organization. Later they were assaulted by Sambhaji Brigade workers.

Few days back two members of Sambhaji Brigade had got explosives in parcels at their offices in Pune.

Sambhaji Brigade has alleged that Shiv Pratishthan and Sanatan Sanstha are behind these parcels.

On the other hand Sanatan Sanstha said that the act is to malign their image.

Meanwhile NCP leader Supriya Sule condemned the attack on Awhad.
