Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) workers allegedly manhandled parents of some students from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, seeking admission in the Military School here, sources said.
The incident took place around 11 am at the Satara Civil Hospital, where a medical examination of the boys was being held. They sought admission in standard VI in the school.
The MNS activists came to the hospital and claimed that fake age proofs were being submitted by the parents of the students, who hailed from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh to get admission in the school. Later they started pushing and manhandling parents of some children there, the sources added.
Justifying his party's action, MNS Satara district president Ranjitsinh Bhosale said, "Fake age certificates were being submitted by parents of non-Maharashtrian students in this school. This prestigious school has a glorious history and is primarily meant for the sons of the soils. If the children of the local people are not getting admission in the school, it would be an injustice to them, which is why we took up this step."
No police complaint has been registered in this connection so far, the sources said.
