BJP MLA Nitesh Rane on Monday alleged Yuva Sena (Shiv Sena''s youth wing) leader Varun Sardesai''s link with Vaze in extortion from bookies during the recent Indian Premier League (IPL). Rane alleged that during the recent IPL, Vaze called up some bookies and demanded Rs 1.5 crore, or else they would be arrested or raided.
"Did "Encounter specialist" also running a TRP case extortion racket? Which media houses were victimised/ targeted?Truth must come out !Extortion mafia must b exposed ! Godfather & his cartel must be brought to justice!," tweeted BJP leader Ashish Shelar.
