Mumbai: An accused in the 2006 murder case of Congress leader Pawanraje Nimbalkar on Tuesday surrendered before a local court which remanded him to judicial custody till September 9.
Sashikant Kulkarni, a government employee and
brother-in-law of an accused Satish Mandade appeared before a
magistrate in Panvel stating that he feared CBI will arrest
him and take his custody in the murder case.

According to CBI, Kulkarni had paid a sum of Rs four lakh
to the other accused who has been arrested to purchase weapons
and a vehicle.

CBI officials said they would approach the Panvel court
tomorrow and seek Kulkarni`s custody to interrogate him.

The CBI had, in August, filed a 5000-page chargesheet in
the case naming suspended NCP leader Padamsinh Patil as the
prime conspirator.
According to the CBI, Patil had paid a `supari` (contract
killing sum) of Rs 30 lakh to murder Nimbalkar due to
political and business rivalry.

The other accused in the case are - Satish Mandade, Mohan
Shukla, Parasmal Jain, Dinesh Tiwari, Pintu Singh and Chotu
Pandey.

All the accused have been charged with criminal
conspiracy and double murder.
