Mauris Noronha: Unraveling the Tragedy Behind the ‘Mauris Bhai’ Alias

Published on

Abhishek Ghosalkar, the former corporator of Shiv Sena (UBT), met a tragic end during a Facebook live session in Mumbai, allegedly at the hands of his erstwhile rival, Mauris Noronha. The shocking incident unfolded despite recent reconciliations between Ghosalkar and Noronha, a self-proclaimed “philanthropist.”

The backdrop to this unfortunate event includes a recent shooting involving Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Ganpat Gaikwad and Shiv Sena Eknath Shinde group functionary Mahesh Gaikwad in Thane, adding another layer to the political tension in the region.

Mauris Noronha: Beyond the Alias

Popularly known as “Mauris Bhai,” Noronha, a poker player, garnered positive attention during the Covid-19 pandemic for aiding marginalized communities. However, his reputation took a dark turn when he faced accusations of blackmailing, raping, cheating, and threatening a 48-year-old woman. The allegations, dating back to 2014, resulted in a 2022 arrest after a lookout notice was issued.

Political Ambitions and Feuds

Reports suggest that Noronha aspired to contest the upcoming corporator elections under Ghosalkar’s party banner. However, the son of prominent Shiv Sena UBT leader Vinod Ghosalkar opposed Noronha’s candidacy. Noronha, suspecting Ghosalkar’s involvement in the legal troubles he faced, allegedly devised a plan to eliminate the Shiv Sena leader.

The Fatal Encounter

The tragic incident occurred at Noronha’s office when Ghosalkar visited to discuss and resolve their differences. A viral video captured the moment when Ghosalkar was shot in the abdomen and shoulder. Rushed to Borivali’s Karuna Hospital, he was declared dead.

Two FIRs were registered – one for murder and the other for suicide – as the Mumbai Police’s Crime Branch took charge of the investigation. The suspected use of an illegal weapon added a layer of complexity to the case. Meanwhile, Mehul Parikh, present at the scene, was arrested, with investigations ongoing.

A State in Shock: Ajit Pawar’s Response

Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar expressed dismay over the incident, stating, “Such an incident should not have happened in Maharashtra.” He emphasized the need for a thorough investigation into the matter, considering the apparent friendly relations between the two parties.
