Mumbai: Police on Monday took into custody
Ramrao Patil, on whose complaint Sarobjit Singh, son of former
minister Buta Singh, was arrested by the CBI on bribery
charges.

A team of the Nashik police was in Mumbai to take
custody of Patil, who is facing a case under the SC/ST Act
which was being probed by National Commission for Schedule
Castes headed by Buta Singh.

"A team of four police officers have come here to take
Patil`s custody in connection with an atrocities case
registered against him in Nashik," CBI joint director Rishiraj
Singh said.

He said, "We are presently recording Patil`s statement
in the bribery case against Sarobjit after which the Nashik
police can take Patil`s custody."

It was not immediately known whether Patil had been
placed under arrest or not. His mobile phone was also switched
off.

Patil had allegedly taken a loan of around Rs 10 crore
on behalf of over 100 people from the Dalit community and
pocketed the money following which a case was registered
against him.
