My son was manhandled inside the police station. They forcibly took possession of my land. Eknath Shinde is trying to create a rule for criminals in Maharashtra. If he remains the Chief Minister Maharashtra will only see the emergence of criminals. It is Shinde who has made a criminal out of me today. I was frustrated and that is the reason I opened fire. I do not have any regrets. If my son is beaten up inside the police station what do you expect me to do. I was not planning to kill them but if someone behaves this way right in front of police then I have to act in self defense.”
