Mumbai, Nov 21 (UNI) The Anti-terrorism Squad (ATS) will today produce Malegaon blast suspect Sudhakrar Chaturvedi, an active member of radical Hindu outfit Abhinav Bharat, in a Maharashtra Control for Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court.

ATS spokesperson Inspector Dinesh Agrawal said that Chaturvedi, who is in the custody of the ATS, will be produced in the MCOCA court in the later part of day after getting remand from Nashik court.
