BHOPAL: People from all over Madhya Pradesh have protested against the brutal attack on Shamim Modi, a professor at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences and an activist involved with several organisations in the State.

The protesters submitted a petition to Governor Rameshwar Thakur here over the weekend demanding swift action by the Maharashtra Government against the attackers assistance from the Madhya Pradesh Government. They also demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation probe into the matter.

Ms. Modi was attacked at her Vasai residence in Mumbai last month. In her statement, she reportedly indicated BJP MLA and former Revenue Minister Kamal Patel’s hand in the incident.
