The BJP MLA, along with his supporters, was taking out a ‘Jan Aakrosh Yatra’.
The Khar police took Ram Kadam to the police station and warned him that he should not take out any rally without permission.
Earlier this month, a special court had granted bail to four persons, including a man and his two sons, in the Palghar mob lynching case.
Laxman Ramaji Jadhav (58), Nitin Laxman Jadhav (26), Manoj Laxman Jadhav (25) and Tukaram Rupji Sath (40), all residents of Hedpada of Gadchinchale village, were among nearly 200 persons who were arrested in the case.
On April 16, 2020, a mob lynched two sadhus -- Chikne Maharaj Kalpavrukshagiri (70) and Sushilgiri Maharaj (35) -- and their driver Nilesh Telgade (30) at Gadchinchale in Palghar district, 140-km north of Mumbai.
While the two monks were heading for Gujarat in a car to attend a funeral, the mob suspected that they were thieves.
The CID (crime) of the Maharashtra Police has filed a charge sheet in the case.
