Ahmednagar: BJP MLA Shivaji Kardile has been arrested for allegedly cheating and threatening an eye surgeon with a revolver, police said on Friday.

Kardile was arrested yesterday after an eye surgeon Dr Prakash Kankriya registered a police complaint against him stating that the MLA had taken Rs 92 lakh from him as part of a deal to sell 23 acres of land at an adjoining village Burhan Nagar.

However, the BJP leader sold to the land to someone else. When Kankriya approached Kardile to get his money back he was threatened with a revolver, the complaint said.

A cheating and threatening case was registered against Kardile, who was remanded in judicial custody till December 12 by a sessions court here.

Meanwhile, senior BJP leader Vinod Tawde alleged that the case against Kardile was a conspiracy by political rivals to defame the party ahead of the elections to eight municipal councils in the district scheduled on December 11.
