New Delhi, 27th January 2022: Supreme Court has directed Maharashtra Police not to arrest Bharatiya Janata Party MLA Nitesh Rane for 10 days in an attempt to murder case.  

A bench headed by Chief Justice NV Ramana directed him to surrender to the trial court within ten days and file a petition for regular bail in the matter. Earlier, in the attempt to murder case, the Bombay High Court had refused anticipatory bail to Rane.

Rane is the MLA from the Kankavali seat in the Sindhudurg district of Maharashtra and is the son of Union Minister Narayan Rane. He had filed an anticipatory bail plea in connection with the alleged assault on a person named Santosh Parab (44). Rane claimed in his petition that he has been falsely accused in the case and is being targeted due to some political rivalry.  

Rane and another accused Dalvi had sought anticipatory bail in a case registered against them by Sindhudurg police in December 2021 under sections 307 (attempt to murder), 120 (b) (criminal conspiracy) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
