Mumbai, Dec 3 (UNI) A designated MCOCA court today convicted Vishnu Pilankar, a close aide of underworld don Chhota Rajan, for firing on a Nagpur-based builder N Kumar in 2004.
Pinalkar was convicted under various sections of the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA), Indian Penal Code (IPC) and others by designated Judge M R Puranik, who will pronounce the quantum of sentence on December six.
