Mumbai, July 14 (UNI) A local court today adjourned till July 29, the hearing on a petition filed by Mohammed Tariq Khan, a businessman, against suspended encounter specialist Daya Nayak and four others for demanding extortion money in the year 1997.
The Metropolitan Magistrate, Bandra, adjourned the matter till July 29 as the three respondents were not present in the court, defence advocate S K Menon said here.
Mr Khan said that Nayak and others had picked him up from his office at Bandra-Kurla complex and taken him to Chandanwadi Police Chowky at Andheri for questioning. After detaining him for two days, they had demanded Rs two lakh as extortion money.
The family members had paid the money and the businessman was subsequently released.
Thereafter, Nayak again approached Mr Khan and demanded Rs one lakh more from him as he had received a lesser share from earlier amount of Rs two lakhs, he alleged.
