Panaji: A local court on Saturday rejected the bail plea of NCP's former national secretary Jitendra Deshprabhu, arrested by the Crime Branch for running an illegal iron ore mine.

Principal District and Sessions Judge Nutan Sardesai dismissed Deshprabhu's bail plea, filed on his behalf by his brother, Devendra Deshprabhu.

On Thursday, court had rejected his anticipatory bail application, following which he was arrested.

It is alleged that he was operating an iron ore mine at his property in Pernem taluka, without a license.

Soon after the arrest, he was admitted to Goa Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) for hypertension and chest pain.

Goa State Mines and Geology Department has already held that illegal ore extraction was on at Deshprabhu's land, and fined him Rs 1.7 crore.
