Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Thursday transferred the probe into allegation of attack against Nitesh Rane, chief of NGO Swabhiman Sanghatana and son of Maharashtra Industries Minister Narayan Rane, to CBI.
Division Bench of Justices AM Khanwilkar and AR Joshi passed the order today, granting the prayer made by Chintu Shaikh, the petitioner, who had alleged that Nitesh shot at him at Swabhiman`s office in Mumbai last September.
