Mumbai: A group of Shiv Sena workers allegedly ransacked a neon signboard with ‘Adani Airport’ written on it near the statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj close to the airport in Mumbai on Monday (August 2) afternoon, a police official said.
Some of the workers later came on to the Western Express Highway located nearby due to which traffic movement on the city’s arterial north-south road was disrupted for some time, the official said.
He said some of those involved in the incident were detained and the process of registering a case was underway.
Mumbai International Airport is the country’s second-busiest airport (after Delhi’s IGIA) by both passenger and cargo traffic.
With the addition of Mumbai International Airport Limited, the Adani Airport Holdings Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Adani Enterprises Ltd, will now control 33 per cent of India’s air cargo traffic, the company had said in a statement.
