Bhusawal: Former NCP legislator from Bhusawal Santosh Chaudhary has been arrested on extortion charges, police said on Saturday.

The ex-lawmaker had allegedly demanded Rs 60 lakh from a builder and his business partner to get their construction plans passed by the Bhusawal Municipal Council, of which Chaudhary's wife is the president, they said.

The builders had paid some money to Chaudhary in the past and were due to pay another Rs 15 lakh on Friday. They lodged a complaint with the police which trapped Chaudhary yesterday and later arrested him on extortion charges.
