Mumbai: Bombay High Court on Monday refused anticipatory bail to Maharashtra BJP MLA Nitesh Rane in connection with an alleged attempt to murder case. The court allowed anticipatory bail of another co-accused Manish Dalvi. 

Nitesh Rane moved the Bombay High Court after a Sindhudurg special judge on December 30, 2021, rejected the anticipatory bail plea. In his plea, Rane claimed he had been booked “out of political rivalry”.

Nitish Rane, son of Union Minister Narayan Rane, is accused of being the main conspirator behind an attempt to murder on December 18 in the Kankavli region of Maharashtra.
