Yesterday, Rane and his supporters were sent to 14-days judicial custody by Kankavali court. Rane and his supporters, who were irked over the poor condition of the Mumbai-Goa highway, vented their ire on a road sub-engineer by bathing him with wet mud and slime and even attempted to tie him to a bridge.

Rane, accompanied by Kankavli Municipal Council President and activists of the NDA-affiliated Maharashtra Swabhiman Party (MSP) had gone to inspect road repairs being carried out on a stretch of the bridge on the Gad River near Kankavli.

They accosted the sub-engineer, Prakash Shedekar, questioning him on the bad condition of the roads and protested how the people had to battle slime and mud daily, and the potholed roads routinely. Videos of the incident went viral on social media evoking mixed reactions, with many condemning the incident.
