Mumbai: Four people, including a corporator of the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS), were arrested in Mumbai on Tuesday for allegedly kidnapping and assaulting a man, police said.

MNS corporator Sanjay Turde had allegedly demanded Rs 50,000 from the contractor of a toilet being constructed in Krantinagar area of suburban Kurla, senior police inspector Dattatray Shinde said.

When the contractor did not pay the money, Turde's two aides kidnapped a 33-year-old supervisor from the contractor's office in Kurla on Monday, he said.

They took the supervisor to Turde's office where the corporator and his three aides allegedly thrashed him, the official said. The supervisor received injuries in the assault and was admitted to a hospital, he said.

The four accused were produced in a local court which remanded them in police custody till August 16, he added.
