IN a shocking incident that sent ripples through Mumbai, Abhishek Ghosalakar, a leader of the Uddhav Thackeray faction, was brutally murdered in the Dahisar area of Mumbai on Thursday evening, February 8. The assailant, identified as Morris Noronha, shockingly broadcasted the killing live on Facebook before turning the gun on himself, resulting in his immediate death. The murder, conducted in broad daylight, has left the city in a state of disbelief and raised serious questions about public safety and the brazenness of criminal activities.

Abhishek Ghosalakar, the son of Vinod Ghosalakar, a prominent leader in the Uddhav Thackeray faction and a former councilor, was known for his active involvement in local politics and social work. The ghastly murder has not only robbed the community of a budding leader but has also sparked a wave of anger and retaliation among his supporters, leading to violent repercussions against the perpetrator’s property.

According to police reports, Morris Noronha, who claimed to be a social activist, had a contentious history with Abhishek Ghosalakar. A complaint against Morris Noronha had been lodged by Abhishek at the Dahisar police station a year prior, hinting at a deep-seated animosity that tragically culminated in this fatal encounter. The motive behind the murder, while seemingly personal, underscores the volatile nature of local political rivalries and the lengths to which they can escalate.
