Acting on information that businessman Suresh Bijlani, an accused in the murder case of builder S K Lohariya, might try to approach the Supreme Court for anticipatory bail, a team of Mumbai Police Crime Branch officers is in Delhi.
A crime branch officer said, "Bijlani's chances will be seriously affected if he does not show up and we are on the lookout for him."
Police spokesperson Deputy Commissioner of Police (Detection) Satyanarayan Chaudhary confirmed that a team of officers had been sent to New Delhi.
Bijlani had moved Bombay High Court for anticipatory bail, which was denied.
Meanwhile, Esplanade Court has rejected the crime branch's application to subject retired police inspector Emmanuel Amolik to psychological analysis. Amolik has claimed full responsibility for Lohariya's killing, saying that he ordered the hit over a row with the deceased two months before the murder.
However, investigations had negated his claims and the crime branch subsequently moved court to subject him to a lie detector as well as a narco test. "The procedure requires consent of the subject and as Amolik refused, the application was rejected," Chaudhary said.
Illegal construction: Kunte issues show cause notice to AMC
Municipal commissioner Sitaram Kunte has issued a show cause notice to an assistant municipal commissioner (AMC), Vijay Bole, for allegedly not taking action against illegal construction in his ward despite complaints.
The move comes after MNS MLA Pravin Darekar met Kunte on the issue. Sources said a major illegal construction was being carried out on a plot in Borivali (R – Central ward), reserved for a garden.
In the notice, Kunte sought to know why action was not taken and demanded a response in three days.
A notice was also slapped on the structure and it was partially demolished on February 28. Demolition was stopped after the structure owner obtained a stay, officials said.
