Maharashtra Revenue Minister Narayan Rane's son Nitesh Rane was today detained at the Goa- Maharashtra border here today after he allegedly led a group which damaged a toll booth and assaulted workers of the state Public Works Department.
Police officials said a convoy of cars headed by Nitesh attacked the toll booth installed by the Goa government at Pernem village. Trouble began when toll booth workers demanded toll fees from Rane's car and other cars following him. "We have received complaints that three workers were arrested and a toll booth was damaged. The police swung into action and detained a group of people including Nitesh Rane," the police said.
A large number of Rane supporters had gathered at the border checkpost and also at Pernem police station.
