In a shocking development, sources reported that a man claiming to be gangster Dawood Ibrahim’s aide had allegedly threatened to blow up the Thackeray residence – Matoshree on Sunday. Sources report that two such threatening calls were made from Dubai on Thackeray’s landline number, as confirmed by the Mumbai police.
Security has been beefed up outside the Thackeray residence. CM Uddhav Thackeray has preferred to reside in his family home ‘Matoshree’ rather than occupying the official CM residence – Varsha Bungalow.

Mayor Pednekar slams ‘threat’
Reacting to the ‘threat’ to the Shiv Sena Supremo, Mumbai Mayor & Shiv Sena leader Kishori Pednekar said, “I condemn this and as a Shiv Sainik, ‘Matoshree’ has been the gift of Balasaheb and Maa. It is a symbol where Shiv Sena was born and grew. Anyone seeing Matoshree with evil eyes, we will gather an army of Shiv Sainiks to protect it. I have complete faith in the Mumbai police and I hope PM Modi also pays special attention to this.”
“If this is an attempt to trouble Uddhav Thackeray as the party chief or CM, then he will not lose focus as he is a mature and decisive leader. A leader who has worked so focused during the pandemic cannot be bothered by such threats. We Shiv Sainiks and police are there to protect him”.
