When Mumbai police investigated the whole matter, they came to the conclusion that a meet organised by Nirupam was illegal and he had provoked hawkers against MNS. Since, the stampede over Elphinstone railway station of Mumbai that killed 23 people, the MNS workers have spread out against the hawkers occupying railway station and Elphinstone Road to driving away illegal vendors. Party's chief Raj Thackeray held a rally from Metro Cinema to Churchgate railway station in south Mumbai on 5 October flagging off their protest, followed by several eviction drives in the city including in Malad, Vashi, and Thane. He was booked for unlawful assembly under the Bombay Police Act.

A group of hawkers/street vendors attacked MNS workers on Saturday when the latter were trying to evict hawkers from outside the Malad railway station. He said he would not accept incidents like the hawkers assaulting Marathi community members.
