Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) from Maharashtra Nitesh Rane on Wednesday withdrew his bail application filed in the Bombay High Court after stating that he would surrender for investigation before the Kankavali Police Station, in relation to an attempt to murder case..The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA and son of Union Minister Narayan Rane is accused of being the main conspirator behind the attempt on the life of a Shiv Sena member in an incident which allegedly took place on December 18, 2021.He had approached the High Court with the present bail application after the Sindhudurg Sessions Court rejected his bail plea..On Wednesday, Advocate Satish Maneshinde appearing for Rane informed the Court that in view of what happened in the Sindhudurg Court, Rane intended to surrender before the Investigating Officer during the course of the day and hence wanted to withdraw the application. After recording the statement given on behalf of Maneshinde, Justice CV Bhadang permitted Rane to withdraw the petition and hence disposed of the petition..Rane had approached the High Court earlier with an anticipatory bail application, after the same relief had been rejected by the Sindhudurg court. The High Court had refused him anticipatory bail on January 17. While doing so, it had extended the assurance given by the Maharashtra government that no coercive action would be taken against Rane till January 27, 2022. Aggrieved by this order, Rane approached the Supreme Court in appeal.The Supreme Court granted him protection from arrest for 10 days with a direction to surrender before the concerned court and apply for bail. Accordingly, Rane approached the Sindhudurg Sessions Court for bail, which was rejected on Tuesday..Rane claimed in his bail application that the FIR was registered against him with the sole aim of preventing his participation in the Sindhudurg Co-operative Bank district elections that were to be held on December 30, 2021.He had contended that the prime controversy in the case was the recent "incident of cat-calling" outside the Vidhan Bhawan, which involved State Cabinet Minister Aditya Thackeray, son of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
