Mumbai: The brother-in-law of a Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) corporator has been arrested for allegedly trying to eliminate the latter's former driver in suburban Chembur, police said.

The accused identified as Ram Sonawane was arrested late last night and was remanded to police custody till March 30, police said.

The police have also charged the corporator Parmeshwar Kadam, representing Ghatkopar area, with attempt to murder as the victim Sachin Gaikwad alleged that the accused tried to kill him at behest of Kadam, who flatly denied the charge and sought detailed inquiry into the matter.

According to police, victim Gaikwad and accused Sonawane had a scuffle following heated argument near a beer bar last night when a police patrolling team nabbed the duo.

"Sonawane was wielding a revolver. We seized the revolver and four bullets. Based on the complaint given by victim, we arrested Sonawane on charges of attempt to murder," said R Gavit, Senior Inspector at Tilak Nagar police station.

As the victim alleged that Sonawane was sent by Kadam, they named the MNS corporator as wanted accused, said Gavit.

Senior Inspector Gavit said, "Sonawane told us that Gaikwad was maligning the image of Kadam and his family. That's why he wanted to teach Gaikwad a lesson and went with the revolver."
