Bengaluru: Close on the heels of gangster Ravi Poojary moving High Court seeking protection, the Court has directed the Mumbai police to take all safety measures to protect the life of gangster Ravi Poojary, if he is taken to Maharashtra for investigation.

Poojary had filed a petition questioning the order passed by a city court on November 13 to give Mumbai police a 10-day custody of Poojary. Here he had also stated that his life is under threat as rivals are waiting to eliminate him.

The counsel of the petitioner had said that shifting the accused from one place to another is very hectic and tedious work, and the state has to incur a lot of expenditure for the same.

Adding that there is scope for misuse of power if Mumbai police provides his custody to third parties, without complying the provisions of CrPC, the counsel argued that there is every chance of Poojary being subjected to harassment and humiliation.

“Therefore, it is better that Mumbai police conducts the investigation in Bengaluru. As the custody granted would tantamount to illegal custody, the interim prayer of stay be granted, till the order of extradition is produced before this court by the prosecution,” Poojary’s counsel prayed.

Issuing emergent notice to the Mumbai police, Justice Nataraj Rangaswamy stated that if the petitioner is taken to Mumbai before November 27, 2020, Mumbai police should take all measures to protect his life.

“He should be brought back to Bengaluru Central Prison after his appearance before the Special Judge under MCOC and NIA Act, City Civil and Sessions Court, Greater Mumbai, on December 10, 2020,” he added.
