Former Congress MP Nilesh Rane, who has been accused of assaulting a worker of the grand old party, surrendered before the police here today and will be produced in a local court, later in the day.
Rane was taken for a medical examination after he surrendered.
He was asked to surrender by the Bombay High Court after his anticipatory bail was refused.
In his plea before the High Court, Rane denied all charges against him and said that the allegations were “politically motivated.”
Rane and four others are accused of kidnapping and assaulting Chiplun Taluka’s Congress chief Sandeep Sawant earlier in April.
Rane’s personal assistant Tushar Panchal and his bodyguard Manish Singh have also been named as co-accused in the case registered at the Thane Police Station.
