Deported gangster Pujari in ATS custody
A day after he arrived in New Delhi on deportation from Philippines, notorious gangster Suresh Pujari was on Wednesday remanded by a Thane court in the custody of Maharashtra’s Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) till December 25 in connection with several extortion cases registered against him. Pujari — who was extradited to India on Tuesday evening and brought to Thane from Delhi — was produced before Chief Judicial Magistrate Rajendra J Tambe, who remanded him in the ATS’ custody for 10 days. Pujari, who had been arrested in the Philippines in October, is wanted in at least two dozen extortion and firing cases in Mumbai, Thane, Kalyan, Ulhasnagar and Navi Mumbai. The case was registered with the MFC police station at Kalyan in Thane district, while he is also wanted in another case registered against him early this month at the MHB police station for allegedly handing extortion and death threats to a Borivli-based based hotelier.
