Ex-ACP Pathan held for rioting

Deonar Police arrested retired assistant commissioner of police (ACP) Shamsher Khan Pathan and 15 others on Friday for rioting and obstructing a public servant from performing his duty.

They said Govardhan Parishad members were taking medically unfit goats to their centre in Mulund (east) at around 8.30 pm on Monday when Pathan and supporters stopped them.

Police booked driver of the vehicle under Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, but Pathan protested.
