Mumbai: Karnataka MLA Santosh Lad was
today detained by the immigration officials at the Chhatrapati
Shivaji International Airport here following a look out
circular issued against him by the Delhi police in connection
with a cheating case.

Lad, a mine owner and Congress MLA from Kalaghatgi
constituency in Dharwad, was detained this morning while on
way to Dubai, police said.

The Delhi police had issued a Look Out Circular (LOC)
in Lad`s name after a real estate company operating in the
national capital region had filed a case of cheating against
him.

Soon after he was detained, immigration officials
informed the Mumbai and Delhi police. The Delhi police are
expected to come to Mumbai to take Lad`s custody, city police
officials said.

According to the police, Lad told immigration
authorities that he was aware of the case against him in Delhi
and maintained that he was in regular touch with the
investigating officer.

However, immigration authorities refused to let him
go.
