MUMBAI: Extradited gangster Ravi Pujari, who is wanted in more than 49 cases in the city, was produced before the special MCOCA court today. He was remanded to police custody till March 9.
The Mumbai police on Monday took custody of Pujari from Bengaluru jail. He was produced in connection with the 2016 firing at Gajalee restaurant in Vile Parle in which a staffer was seriously injured. Sources said his men wanted to scare the restaurant owner and demand extortion money. The crime branch had arrested seven Pujari gang members and charged them under the stringent MCOCA.
Sources said a special team will interrogate Pujari on the cases against him in Mumbai. He will be kept in lockup at the police headquarters at Crawford Market.
