A youth was detained on Thursday for allegedly issuing a threat to Nashik Central BJP MLA Devyani Pharande in connection with an incident that took place on April 3, a police official said.


On April 3, a resident of Jai Bhavani Road area had uploaded an allegedly objectionable post, following which a mob had agitated in front of Upnagar police station and Dwarka Chowk seeking his arrest. The mob also pelted stones at vehicles on Pune-Nashik highway, the official said.

“The man was arrested by Upnagar police. A couple of days ago, Pharande had addressed a press conference seeking further action from the police,” the official said.
