On Wednesday, Congress MLA Nitesh Rane who was arrested for threatening and abusing highway engineer was granted bail by a court. Rane, son of Narayan Rane, former Chief Minister of Maharashtra, was granted bail by Sindhudurg court against a surety amount of Rs 20000 on condition that he will appear before Kankavli police station every Sunday and not repeat such an offence.
Yesterday, Rane and his supporters were sent to 14-days judicial custody by Kankavali court. Rane and his supporters, who were irked over the poor condition of the Mumbai-Goa highway, vented their ire on a road sub-engineer by bathing him with wet mud and slime and even attempted to tie him to a bridge.
