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.
