Gangster Ravi Pujari brought to Mumbai from Karnataka jail

After a year-long battle, a Bengaluru court on Saturday granted the custody of extradited gangster Ravi Pujari to Mumbai Police. The gangster will be brought to Mumbai and will be produced before the MCOCA court today.

Gangster Ravi Pujari, who was lodged in a Karanataka Jail, in connection with the 2016 Ghazali Hotel firing case will be brought to Mumbai with heavy security arrangements. 

There are around 49 serious offences registered in Mumbai against him apart from Navi Mumbai and Thane. Pujari, who was wanted in several cases, including ones related to heinous crimes like murder and extortion, was extradited to Bengaluru in February 2020 from Senegal.

The gangster, who parted ways with underworld don Chhota Rajan, had jumped bail after he was arrested in Senegal in 2019 and had escaped to South Africa, where he was involved in drug trafficking and extortion.

According to sources in the Indian intelligence, Ravi Pujari was hiding under the false identity of Anthony Fernandes, a Burkina Faso passport holder, in a remote village in South Africa.
