Veteran journalist and lawyer S Balakrishnan has sought a police inquiry into Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) chief Raj Thackeray's claim of another "Pulwama-like" terror attack before the Lok Sabha polls.
Balakrishnan Sunday submitted a written complaint to the Chembur police station, demanding an inquiry under relevant laws into the claim made by the MNS chief about a possible terror attack in the country, police said Monday.
Citing media reports, Balakrishnan said Thackeray had said, "Mark my words there will be yet another Pulwama- like incident in the country".
According to the application, Thackeray is a senior and responsible politician, whose statements should be taken seriously.
He appears to be certain of a repeat of the Pulwama- type terror attack that took place on February 14 and resulted in the killing of 40 CRPF jawans in Jammu and Kashmir, the journalist-lawyer said.
The police should record Thackeray's statement and inquire into his claim, said Balakrishnan.
