Shops in several areas shut down as the news of Thackeray's death spread. People were stranded in several areas as many taxis and auto rickshaws also went off road. The Mumbai police said that over 20,000 police personnel had been deployed across Mumbai to avoid any law-and-order problem. The entire state of Maharashtra has been put on high alert for the next 24 hours.

"People should maintain peace and should not lose calm. We should carry on the thoughts of Shiv Sena chief," Raut said. He added that the party workers would be able to pay last respects to the Shiv Sena supremo from 7.00 am on Sunday at Shivaji Park.

Shivaji Park was the place where the very first rally of Shiv Sena was held, and where Thackeray held his annual Dussehra rallies year after year. This year, however, he had not been able to attend the event because of ill-health.
