Shiv Sena activists entered Shree Mahalaxmi Temple in Kolhapur city with pistols in their pockets on Monday. Though they entered the temple through the metal detector, no sign of security challenge was indicated. After entering the temple, sena’s district unit chief Sanjay Pawar and chief of the youth wing Harshal Surve took out their licensed pistols and exposed the lapses in security in the temple. They took to task the police and the office-bearers of the Western Maharashtra Devastan Committee in this regard. \
