Mumbai, Mar 27 (ANI): Gangster-turned-politician Arun Gawli will contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from the North Central Mumbai parliamentary constituency.

Gawli will contest from his own party Akhil Bharatiya Sena (ABS).

Gawli’s daughter Geeta ruled out reports stating ABS’ tie-up with Mayawati led Bhaujan Samaj Party (BSP), saying the party will go alone in the general elections.

Gawli, who is lodged at the Arthur Road jail in connection with a murder and extortion case, was elected to the state legislature in 2004, from the Chinchpokli constituency. (ANI)
