Ganesh Shirke said in his complaint that as soon as a crowd gathered around the vendor, the bubble of controversy burst. He said that there was at least one balloon in the packet of peace balloons, which was green in color and had the flag of Pakistan on it and ‘Happy Independence Day’ was written in Urdu. The FIR states that during interrogation, Aman, 20, a resident of Pardhi Colony on Vijapur Road, said that he and Shivaji bought the balloons from Tanveer Bagwan, who owned New Roshan Toy Store in Solapur. Both the balloon sellers told the police that they are not educated and cannot read what is written on the balloons.

what is the charge

Shirke said that at the same time a crowd started gathering on the spot, after which the police took both the balloon sellers to the police station. It is further written in the FIR that Ajay Aman Pawar and Shivaji Laxman Pawar sold the said balloons to the general public with the intention of creating trouble between Hindu and Muslim communities. This will increase the enmity between the two communities and destroy the peace between the two communities. That’s why I have a complaint against the balloon sellers and the owner of the shop, Bagwan.
