In a shocking turn of events, Mauris Noronha, also known as Mauris ‘Bhai’, allegedly shot dead Abhishek Ghosalkar, a prominent leader of Shiv Sena UBT, during a Facebook live stream. The incident unfolded amidst simmering tensions between the two individuals, who were purportedly attempting to reconcile their differences during the video.

Background of the Individuals Involved

Noronha, recognized for his charitable acts during the COVID-19 pandemic, had recently returned to Mumbai from Los Angeles with aspirations of contesting the upcoming corporator elections. However, his political ambitions were met with opposition from Ghosalkar, son of a prominent Shiv Sena UBT leader. Moreover, Noronha found himself entangled in legal troubles, including allegations of rape, which he suspected Ghosalkar of orchestrating.

The Tragic Turn of Events

Driven by suspicion and animosity, Noronha allegedly devised a plan to eliminate Ghosalkar. The fatal incident occurred at Noronha’s office in IC Colony, Borivali (West), where he reportedly shot Ghosalkar multiple times before taking his own life. The gruesome act was captured on camera, further amplifying the shock and horror surrounding the incident.

Investigation and Arrest

Following the tragedy, Mumbai Police launched an investigation, registering FIRs for murder and suicide. One individual, Mehul Parikh, was arrested in connection with the incident. Parikh’s presence at the scene during the shootings has raised suspicions, prompting authorities to delve deeper into his involvement or prior knowledge of the crime.

Broader Implications and Political Response

The murder of Ghosalkar comes in the wake of escalating political violence, exemplified by recent incidents involving prominent figures. Aaditya Thackeray, son of Uddhav Thackeray and former state minister, expressed concern over the deteriorating law and order situation in Maharashtra. He emphasized the adverse impact of such incidents on the state’s reputation and urged swift action to restore peace and security.


The tragic murder on Facebook Live serves as a grim reminder of the deep-seated conflicts and vulnerabilities within society. As authorities continue their investigation, the incident underscores the pressing need for effective measures to prevent such acts of violence and ensure justice for the victims and their families.
