New Delhi, Nov 21 (UNI) A local court today issued a fresh production warrant against underworld don Abu Salem who is facing trial on charges of extortion of money from a South Delhi-based businessman.
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjeev Jain directed the Superintendent of the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai to produce Salem before the court on December 19.
The extortion case was reported in July 2002, in which Salem had allegedly demanded Rs one crore from Rajat Nagrath, owner of Allied Communications at East of Kailash in South Delhi.
After a two-month-long probe, the Special Cell of Delhi Police had then arrested three persons, Ishtaq, Sadiq and Chandu Prakash, for their involvement in that case. During interrogation, they had purportedly disclosed that they targeted businessmen at the instance of Salem, who was then suspected to be operating from Dubai.
The Chief Metropolitan Magistrate court earlier had on October 15 issued a production warrant against Salem for today.
