Hearing on Bapat's plea on April 7

Written by: Staff

Mumbai, Apr 3 (UNI) Special Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) court today adjourned the hearing on an anticipatory bail plea of former Mumbai Police Commissioner Shrikant Bapat till April seven.

ACB judge P N Deshmukh adjourned the hearing after defence counsel Ashok Mundergi sought time to go through the reply submitted by Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Sudharkar Poojari.

Fearing arrest in the multi-crore MPSC (Maharashtra Public Service Commission) examination scam of 1999, Mr Bapat had moved the special court.

Mr Poojari, the investigating officer in the case, had summoned Mr Bapat for questioning at the ACB office.

However, instead of visiting the agency office, the former Mumbai Police Commissioner filed an application before Additional Sessions Judge P N Deshmukh, seeking anticipatory bail.

Mr Bapat, who was a member of Commission between 1994 and 1999, is alleged to have played a role in the recruitment of the three Lohar brothers as Deputy Superintendents of Police (DySPs).
