New Delhi : Underworld mobster Abu Salem, lodged in a Mumbai jail, is likely to be produced in a city court Wednesday in connection with an extortion case.
Salem’s lawyer Arvind Shukla told IANS: “Salem is coming to Delhi by train.”
However, a top Delhi Police official stated they had no intimation of his court date.
Salem was to produced before the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate at the Tis Hazari courts following a production warrant against him in connection with an alleged extortion call he made to a south Delhi-based businessman.
The gangster, who has been lodged in Mumbai’s Arthur Road Jail after his extradition from Portugal in 2005, had allegedly demanded Rs.10 million from Rajat Nagrath, owner of Allied Communications in East of Kailash, six years ago.
Salem is facing trial in eight cases in the country. Earlier, the court had issued production warrants on three occasions against him but a Mumbai court had stayed his production here following his lawyer’s plea on security grounds.
