Mumbai, Feb 23 : A special court in Mumbai on Tuesday sent gangster Ravi Pujari brought here from Bengaluru, to police custody till March 9 in a 2016 firing case, officials said.
Absconding since years, Pujari was extradited from the west African nation of Senegal in February 2020 and was lodged in a Bengaluru jail in connection with several cases in which he was wanted by the Indian authorities.
Last Saturday, a Mumbai Police team had gone to Bengaluru on Saturday after a Karnataka Court allowed Pujari's transfer to the Maharashtra capital to face charges under the firing case.
Brought here by road this morning by a team of the Anti-Extortion Cell, Pujari was produced before the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) Special Judge D. Kothalikar who sent him to police custody for a fortnight.
