In a shocking incident that has sent shockwaves through the community, two unidentified assailants allegedly targeted RTI activist Mobin Shaikh in a brazen attack at his residence in Virar, Maharashtra. The incident, which occurred on Monday morning, marks the second assault on Shaikh, who miraculously escaped unharmed once again.
The 42-year-old RTI activist, residing in Ashiyana society at Gopcharpada in Virar East, became the target of the assailants around 7:30 am. According to police reports, an unknown man knocked on Shaikh’s door, accompanied by another person standing outside his house window. As Shaikh approached the door, the assailant fired a shot, narrowly missing the activist.
Remarkably, the bullet struck the wall of Shaikh’s house, sparing him from harm. Both attackers fled the scene immediately after the failed attempt, prompting the police to recover the bullet as evidence and launch a comprehensive investigation.
This incident follows a previous acid attack on Shaikh, adding another layer of concern for the community. Authorities are now diligently examining CCTV footage to identify and trace the shooters, whose motives remain unclear at this time.
The police official in charge of the case emphasized that despite the previous acid attack and the recent shooting, Shaikh managed to escape unscathed, highlighting his resilience in the face of adversity. The community, understandably shaken by the incident, has been reassured by law enforcement that the situation is now under control.
The motive behind the repeated attacks on the RTI activist remains a subject of investigation, with authorities vowing to apprehend the perpetrators and ensure justice for Mobin Shaikh. The incident serves as a stark reminder of the challenges faced by activists who strive to bring transparency and accountability to the forefront through their work.
