New Delhi: A Delhi court on Friday framed
charges against two brothers under the anti-organised crime
law MCOCA for allegedly being involved in several cases of
extortion and cheating in the national capital.
Finding prima facie substance in the allegations against
them, Special Judge J R Aryan charged Jag Mohan and Jai Chand
with various offences under Maharashtra Control of Organised
Crime Act (MCOCA).
"By use of violence or threat of violence or intimidation
with the objective of gaining pecuniary benefits or gaining
undue economic or other advantages, you are being charged
under MCOCA," the court said.
According to the Delhi police, Jag Mohan and Jai Chand
had committed crimes relating to extortion, cheating,
attacking police party and obstructing public servants from
discharge of their duties among others.
Both the brothers had earned notoriety by resorting to
extortion and intimidation of the business community of
Daryaganj and Chandani Chowk here, the police alleged.
They were apprehended in September, 2005.
