Mumbai: An FIR has been filed against Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) leader Avinash Jadhav and others at the Lokmanya Tilak (LT) Marg police station for allegedly demanding a ransom of 5 crore.

According to information received from LT Marg police, complainant Shailesh Kantilal Jain (55), who resides in Marine Drive and is involved in the gold business, filed a complaint with the police stating that on Wednesday, he had called Vaibhav Thakkar to settle accounts at his jewellery shop.
