Shiv Sena members on Tuesday warned Abu Asim Azmi, Member of Legislative Assembly from Samajwadi Party, against making remarks about Sena chief Bal Thackeray.

"Azmi will not be allowed to roam around if he dare say anything against Balasaheb," Sena MLA Eknath Shinde told mediapersons at Vidhan Bhavan.

Earlier in the day, Azmi told the media: "Thackeray has got old and is speaking like child."

Infuriated over the remark, Sena members gheraoed Azmi outside Vidhan Bhavan entrance and asked him to clarify the statement.

"Azmi told us that he has not said anything against Balasaheb. We have warned him that he will face consequences over his remarks against our leader," Shinde said.
