 Abhishek had some personal enmity with Noronha. However, they had patched up recently. Abhishek was reportedly invited to Mauris Noronha’s office for an event.

Noronha, who was accused of shooting Abhishek Ghosalkar, was found dead. According to ANI, Noronha may have shot Ghosalkar before dying by suicide. He had reportedly streamed the incident live on Facebook. The motive for the shooting is not yet clear.

Shiv Sena leader Anand Dubey has demanded a thorough investigation into the matter. “An atmosphere of ‘Jungle Raj’ is being created in the state. Firings are taking place in broad daylight. A thorough investigation should be made into the incident,” reported ANI.
