The incident took place around 11.30 am in Lokhandwala Complex area in suburban Kandivali. As per reports, some Sena workers reached his house to beat him up. "Sharma sustained an eye injury and is being treated at hospital," an official said.

Speaking to ANI, Sharma said, "8-10 persons attacked and beat me up today, after I received threatening calls for a message that I had forwarded. I have worked for the nation my entire life. A government like this should not exist."
