Following the violence, a complaint has been filed against Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani and Jawaharlal Nehru University student Umar Khalid in Pune for allegedly making controversial statements during an event called "Elgar Parishad", to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of Bhima-Koregaon, at Shaniwar Wada in Mumbai on December 31.

The police said a notice under section 149 of the CrPC had been served to the organisers earlier as permission to hold the event at Bhaidas Hall in Vile Parle West had not been granted.

"The police are acting at the behest of the BJP-Shiv Sena government to crush the voice of the students who raise uncomfortable questions". "MLC Kapil Patil and students from different parts of the state were detained. Their statements caused tension and trouble between two communities and it is suspected that it led to the trouble in Koregaon Bhima", said additional commissioner of police (south region) Ravindra Sengaonkar.

Bikkad approached the Deccan-Gymkhana police with the complaint, which was forwarded to the Vishrambaug police station, since Shaniwarwada falls under its jurisdiction.

"If we are to defeat the "New Peshwas", if we are to take the Bhima Koregaon fight forward, if we are to be inspired by the agitation, we need to be politicians". Jignesh Mevani and Khalid Umar had attended that event.

Meanwhile, Section 144 of the Indian Penal Code has also been imposed at the venue, reports said.
