Solapur: A case was registered against
Congress legislator Dilip Mane, after he allegedly roughed up
an engineer here over a minor dispute, police said on Saturday.

According to the complainant, the incident took place
yesterday at Kumthe, after Mane and his men allegedly beat one
Jitij Balwadikar, using sticks and iron rods.

The civil engineer, who suffered injuries in the attack
has been admitted to a hospital here, Sadar Bazar police said.

Mane has however refuted the charges and said he was not
present on the spot.

Balwadikar said he had constructed an educational
institute here, which was scheduled to be inaugurated on
February one by former BJP MP Subhash Deshmukh.

And since Mane was not invited to the function, it irked
him which led to the attack, he added.
