The HC however adjourned the matter after Goldie Sood said he wanted to intervene in the matter to oppose Rane's plea. Rane came to court after a magistrate rejected the second closure report of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the September 2010 case. Nitesh is accused of shooting at a person who heads an NGO.
Mahesh Jethmalani, counsel for Rane questioned the June 10 rejection of the closure report in the face of lack of evidence. The complaint was politically motivated his plea said and at the last hearing he said that the complainant wished to settle the matter.
Shamim Shaikh alias Chintu president of the transport wing of Nitesh's Swabhimaan Sanghatana, had filed the criminal complaint. On his plea the HC had in 2011 transferred the inquiry to the CBI. In August last year the magistrate rejected the first closure report.
