NCP and MNS workers pelted stones at each other on Tuesday shortly after Raj Thackeray left a public meeting in Ahmednagar district. The clash left at least five injured.
Ahmednagar superintendent of police R D Shinde said, "No arrests have been made so far. A police inspector was hurt in the incident."
MNS chief Thackeray, who is touring drought-affected districts of the state, had recently attacked NCP president Sharad Pawar and deputy CM Ajit Pawar.
MNS assembly leader Bala Nandgaonkar said, "NCP workers had assembled at the venue where Raj Thackeray was to address MNS workers in Ahmednagar.
"There was no harm caused to Raj Thackeray. But MNS workers, including women, have been hurt."
Initially, there were verbal clashes between the workers. Police resorted to a mild lathi-charge to prevent the two parties from getting physical. As Thackeray was leaving, NCP workers ran after his vehicle and pelted stones.
