The BJP leader was brought to the Khar police station after being detained.
ANI quoted Kadam saying, “Maharashtra, the land of our brave saints and Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, is in the wrong hands. We are being prevented from reaching Palghar to demand justice for our saints. Thousands of police personnel surrounded us as if we were terrorists. What is the restriction that Maharashtra Police is imposing on us?”
On the night of 16 April this year, a case of beating of two sadhus and their driver came to light when they were traveling from Mumbai to Kandivali to attend a funeral in Surat from Gujarat, following a nationwide lockdown and their vehicle was stopped and they were allegedly attacked and killed by a mob in Gadchinchile village in the presence of police officers.
