A case was filed against Raj Surve, son of Shiv Sena MLA Prakash Surve (Shinde Faction), and around 15 others for allegedly kidnapping a businessman for ransom in Goregaon. The alleged abduction took place with guns, and the FIR was filed on August 10 at Van Oirai police station.

The complaint comes from Rajkumar Jagdish Singh (38), who lives in Goregaon East and is the CEO of Global Music Junction Private Limited. His company provides digital collateral loans. Another businessman, Manoj Mishra (30) from Patna, Bihar, borrowed Rs. 8 crore from Singh's company in 2021 for a YouTube channel. The agreement stated that Mishra would repay 11 crores to Singh over 5 years.

According to the complainant, Mishra used the loan for purposes other than the YouTube channel, causing Singh's company to suffer less profit. Singh's company asked Mishra to use the loan for the intended purpose, but Mishra asked for more money, which Singh declined. In 2022, Mishra began pressuring Singh to cancel the agreement. In 2023, they agreed to a settlement, and Singh transferred one crore to Mishra's company between June 2023 and July 2023.

A CCTV footage also showed what happened inside when Rajkumar Singh was forced by the goons to leave with them.

On August 9, at 3:20 pm, Singh received a call from someone claiming to be from Prakash Surve's office, asking him to come there. When Singh inquired about the caller's identity, they threatened him and said, 'I am your father, you better come here.' Singh said he would come on Saturday and hung up.

Later, around 10 to 12 people forcibly entered Singh's office. They verbally abused and physically attacked Singh, then took him to Prakash Surve's office at gunpoint. Raj Surve and Manoj Mishra were present. Raj Surve told Singh to resolve Mishra's issue immediately, or he would be held there until it was resolved. They then moved Singh to another building's first floor. Police called Singh, but he couldn't explain his situation in detail.

Mishra and others threatened Singh, forced him to sign a paper cancelling the agreement at gunpoint, and warned him against involving the police. Singh's relatives and police were at Prakash Surve's office when Singh arrived. Due to the situation, Singh initially didn't file a complaint but later went to Vanrai police station with his relatives to file an FIR.

The FIR lodged against Manoj Mishra, Padmakar, Raj Surve, Vicky Shetty, and 10 to 15 unidentified individuals. 

The case includes charges under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including 364(A) (kidnapping for ransom), 452 (assault), 143 (unlawful assembly), 147(rioting), 149 (unlawful assembly for common offence), 323 (causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult), 506 (criminal intimidation), and under sections 3 (carry firearm) and 25 (carries any prohibited arms) of the Arms Act.
