Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena today said many labourers getting hired in Mumbai from other states are not verified by the police which leads to an increase in crime rate.
"The rape of a four-year-old girl in Goregaon by one of the workers of a hotel is an example. There is lack of police verification documents of such workers in the city," party general secretary Shalini Thackeray said.
Such workers are often hired without background checks and police verification, she said.
Thackeray today led a party delegation to Dindoshi police station to discuss the issue with officials.
