Mumbai, Feb 8 (IANS): Shiv Sena-UBT leader Abhishek Ghosalkar was shot and critically injured on Thursday by a person from his neighbourhood, and the assailant subsequently shot himself.

The incident occurred in the north Mumbai suburb of Dahisar when Ghosalkar was sitting on a sofa and talking live on Facebook with some visitors about local works. As he stood up, one person whipped out a revolver and fired at least three rounds at him.

Ghosalkar was seen stumbling forward and falling down, even as videos of the incident went viral.

The alleged assailant is identified as one Morris Noronha, a person from the neighbourhood, and he reportedly shot himself after shooting Abhishek Ghosalkar, ostensibly owing to a personal dispute.

    The courts have been backed up for decades of unsettled lawsuits and thousands of people choose to use local gangsters (Supari), or they take the law into their hand - which in both cases is wrong. Our courts are still following the British system of holidays, they are closed for 2 months of the year, one for summer holidays, and another in December, (During the Raj, the judges would go home to the U.K. for Christmas Holidays) but the practice continue. Hence, an overwhelming number of people wait for years to get justice, but many don't see the day and they die before justice could be given them, as court cases linger on, and on for ever.

    When you try to reach sky such things happen. Maurice Noronha had a office in Immaculate Conception Colony in between Hotel Gold Coin and D'souza' s small restaurant where in he sit often. It's nothing but internal matter amongst Udhava Shivsena fraction in regard to grab properties. Who did provided revolver to Maurics. Need a deep jnvestigation. Hindu Khatre mein Hai.
