Mumbai: Maharashtra Revenue Minister Narayan Rane today took potshots at the state government for the speed at which a police complaint was filed against his son Nitesh in a firing case.

Without taking names, Rane said the manner in which DCP Amitabh Gupta himself took the lead in registering a criminal complaint against his son shows how efficient the state government was.

"When Nitesh was implicated in a case recently, Gupta himself went to Powai from Khar to register the complaint when it could have been done by any other police official. It shows that the government is sensitive to complaints from opposition," Rane said sarcastically at the 2nd anniversary of his newspaper 'Prahar'.

He said, "I think with senior police officers like Gupta at the helm, Mumbai will be free of serious law and order problems."

Rane's foe-turned-friend Union Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, who was present at the event, said even though he is in Delhi now, he keeps a "bird's eyeview" of what's happening in the state.

"I felt good to know that senior police officials themselves went to register criminal complaints. This was not the case in my time. Criminal complaints were registered only after proper investigations," he said.

Swabhiman activist Chintu Sheikh had alleged that Rane's son had shot him when he visited his office at Khar and an attempt to murder case was registered.
