Maha CM refutes charges of `going soft` in Rane case
Mumbai: Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan denied any political pressure by the government on police in the case of alleged firing by Revenue minister Narayan Rane`s son Nitesh and said investigations are on.
"There is no political pressure from the Government in the matter, investigations are on. An appropriate action would be taken after the outcome of the investigations," Chavan said replying to allegation by Shiv Sena of `going soft` in the case.
Earlier, Sena spokesperson Neelam Gorhe alleged that the Government is `going soft` on the issue and not arresting Nitesh despite him being charged under IPC Section 307, an
attempt to murder.
"Nitesh has not been arrested so far though he has been booked under IPC Section 307. In fact, his brother Nilesh is speaking to media about his innocence," Gorhe said. She questioned whether the government is allowing him to buy time for getting an anticipatory bail or run away to a foreign country to evade arrest.
The Sena spokesperson also demanded resignation of Rane whose son Nitesh allegedly fired at Chintu Sheikh, a member of the NGO Swabhiman Sangathana. The victim said Nitesh fired at him in his office in suburban Khar yesterday following an altercation.
