A scuffle broke out between Congress supporters and BJP workers during Congress candidate from Mumbai North, Urmila Matondkar's election campaign at Borivali on Monday, police said.

The BJP workers chanted slogans outside the Borivali railway station, shouting 'Modi, Modi' as they confronted the Congress workers, an onlooker said.

Matondkar approached the Borivali police station and lodged a police complaint after the scuffle.

Matondkar said there's a threat to her family and added that it was done to create fear.

"It's being done to create fear. It's just beginning, it'll take a violent turn. Have asked for police protection; there's a threat to my life; I've filed a complaint," she said. 

She has sought police protection after the incident and is expected to address media on the incident later in the day, an aide of the Congress candidate said.

BJP has fielded sitting MP Gopal Shetty from the constituency.
