A case has been registered against Maharashtra's cop-turned-politician Pradeep Sharma for allegedly threatening poll officials during voting on Monday, the police said.
Pradeep Sharma is Shiv Sena's candidate from the Nalasopara Assembly seat.
An inspector-rank officer, Pradeep Sharma recently resigned from the Maharashtra police to contest elections.
He is accused of entering a polling booth in Chandansar in Virar along with his supporters and threatening officials.
Pradeep Sharma earned the tag of "encounter specialist" for shooting a large number of underworld operatives during his long stint with Mumbai police Crime Branch.
