Shiv Sena MP and 'Saamna' Executive Editor Sanjay Raut was arrested on Tuesday for allegedly "leading the attack" on a five-star hotel in Mumbai last week but was later granted bail by a local court.

The Rajya Sabha member was arrested by the Mumbai Police and produced before the Andheri metropolitan magistrate, which remanded him in judicial custody till February 5.

Raut's lawyers then filed a bail application before the same court, which released him on a personal bond of Rs 5000.

Raut was booked under IPC sections related to rioting, said a senior police official from Sahar police station.

He was arrested on Tuesday morning in connection with the attack on Hotel Intercontinental in suburban Andheri by Shiv Sena-led Bhartiya Kamgar Sena (BKS) on January 21.

At least 53 BKS members, who were arrested in the case, were also granted bail of Rs 5000 each by the court.

The mob had vandalised the lobby and kitchen of Lalit Group's Intercontinental Hotel to protest the sacking of 21 employees of the hotel by the management.
