Thane, May 20 UNI | 2 months ago

An unknown intruder today walked into the General Body meeting of the Thane Municipal Corporation, after the start of the meeting at 1130 hrs and created a scene for about half an hour with no security guard stopping him.

Around 10 female members of the civic corporation had assembled and taken their seats at one cornor by 1130 hrs, and no male member was present in the house as the Civic Secretary Manish Joshi was still waiting for the Mayor HS Patil and Commissioner Aseem Gupta to arrive.

As time passed, an unknown person entered the hall and occupied one of the seats of the corporators in the last row. Three others, who accompanied him, went up to the visitor's gallery.

The intruder then began using slang words and made unparliamentary comments in the presence of the lady members, who were the only ones in the hall.

Later he flung his mobile phone to one of his aides up in the gallery and made a comment, and after some time, did the same with his googles and passed some comment again. He finally removed the shirt he was wearing over his t-shirt and flung that to the gallery as well.

In the end, he called out to his followers and walked right out of the hall after picking up a bottled water kept for the members, with no one stopping him through the entire ruckus.

It is still a mystery as to who the intruder was and how and why he was allowed entry into the members' enclosure and allowed to occupy their chair after the scheduled start of the General Body meeting.
