Shiv Sena workers gathered in large numbers outside the apartment of Amravati MP Navneet Rana and her husband MLA Ravi Rana in Mumbai this morning, and shouted slogans after the couple announced that they would recite the Hanuman Chalisa outside 'Matoshree', the residence of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.

The Shiv Sena workers broke through the barricades and tried to enter the premises of the legislator couple's residence in Suburban Khar, however, the police brought the situation under control and stopped the Shiv Sena workers from going further.

Both Navneet Rana and Ravi Rana are independent legislators from the Vidarbha region in Maharashtra.

On Friday, a team led by Deputy Commissioner of Police Manjunath Singe visited the Rane residence and served them a notice, asking them to maintain law and order.

Police have increased security outside 'Matoshree' and placed barricades on the road leading to the Thackeray residence to avoid crowding.

Police personnel were deployed outside the couple's apartment as well after Shiv Sena workers yesterday turned up there and dared the couple to step out of their residence.

However, unfazed by the Shiv Sena's ire and notice by Mumbai Police, the couple maintained they were firm on their plan. "Maharashtra Chief Minister ordered Shiv Sena workers to heckle us. They're breaking the barricades. I'm reiterating that I'll go outside and will chant Hanuman Chalisa at 'Matroshree'," alleged Navneet Rana.
