New Delhi, May 22: A city court today remanded underworld don Abu Salem into seven-day custody of the Delhi Police (Special Cell), for his alleged involvement in an extortion case.
Salem was brought here from Mumbai by train yesterday, after a production warrant was issued against him for allegedly threatening an East of Kailash businessman, demanding money.
He was produced in the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Seema Maini, who handed down the order.
The gangster had allegedly demanded Rs one crore from Rajat Nagrath, owner of Allied Communications in East of Kailash in 2002.
Salem is lodged in the the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai, after he was extradited from Portugal in 2005.
