Delhi court issues production warrant against Abu Salem
New Delhi, Mar 13 (UNI) A Delhi Court today issued a production warrant for April 13 against underworld don Abu Salem in a case of extortion and criminal intimidation.
Chief Metropolitant Magistrate (CMM) Seema Maini passed the order.
Special Cell of the Delhi Police had sought his custody in the case in which his associates allegedly demanded Rs one crore from the owner of South Delhi-based Allied Communication in 2002 and threatened him with dire consequences if the amount was not paid.
The owner of the firm was asked to get in touch with Salem on satellite phone (no 00871761888132).
On July 20, 2002 the victim again got a call from one Bhai Thakur asking him why he had not called Salem. He was again threatened with dire consequences and told to contact the don on his cell phone (nos 00971507741932 and 00971505307204).
The extortion amount was also increased to Rs two crore.
On September 26, 2002 Sadik Ali and Chandra Praksh Rai were arrested near the private firm's office, as the two had allegedly come to kill the owner.
Later, two others Ishtiaq and Papu Yadav were also arrested from Uttar Pradesh in connection with the case.
Salem is also wanted in many such cases in the national capital. The Police Commissioner had earlier stated that the city police would seek his custody.
