Murder case against Rane's son: CBI probe demanded

September 24, 2010 14:18 IST

Wife of NGO activist Chintu Sheikh, who was allegedly shot at by Maharashtra Revenue Minister Narayan Rane's son Nitesh, on Friday demanded a Central Bureau of Investigation enquiry into the incident.

"The reason as to why my husband was fired is not yet clear but it appears to be a pre-planned attack and therefore a CBI enquiry needs to be conducted," Simran said. "Police have so far not arrested Nitesh because he is the son of a minister," she added.

"In fact, they have met Nitesh in this connection... If a common man was involved, he would have been immediately arrested," she added.

Nilesh, brother of Nitesh visited Khar police station on Thursday night along with Minority Welfare Minister Naseem Khan. "It was a politically motivated incident and enquiry is on in the matter. The facts would be out soon," he said.

An attempt to murder case was registered on Thursday against Nitesh on a complaint by Chintu Sheikh an activist of an NGO, Swabhiman Sangathana. Sheikh alleged that Nitesh, who runs the NGO, shot him injuring his jaw.
