Marine Drive police here has asked Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar and ten other NCP leaders, who had participated in a protest in 2018, to remain present at Sewree court on August 31, an official said.

NCP leaders had staged a protest in October 2018 at Marine Drive Police Station in South Mumbai, which led to a case of unlawful assembly being registered against them.
