Bhalchandra Naik, chairman of Dahej Minerals, had recently alleged that Rane demanded a bribe of Rs 6 crore from him to facilitate the clearing of a mining lease and the money was accepted by his son Vishwajit.
However, Rane refuted the allegations and claimed he has never met Naik. “I don’t know who he (Naik) is. The allegations against me are false,” he said.
