Following the death of a 25-year-old woman who was burnt alive seven days ago in Hinganghat near Wardha, CM Uddhav Thackeray has urged people to be patient.
He said the case will be fast-tracked and the accused will be given a harsh sentence for the murder.
Hinganghat residents blocked highways on Monday following the woman's death.
"The case will be fast-tracked and the accused will be given a harsh sentence," he said, adding that noted criminal lawyer Ujjwal Nikam would represent the state in the case.
Opposition leader Devendra Fadnavis told the government to ensure harsh punishment that would prove as a deterrent.
