New Delhi: A Delhi court on Monday extended
the judicial custody by 14 days of self-styled Godman Shiv
Murat Dwivedi, who along with seven others, including six
alleged call girls, are accused in a flesh trade racket case.

"The accused (Dwivedi) is further remanded to judicial
custody till June 7," Metropolitan Magistrate Ravindra Singh
said.

Except Dwivedi, other seven are out on bail in the
case in which police have recently filed a chargesheet under
the provisions of the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act.

Earlier, the court provided accused with the copies of
the chargesheet which alleged that Dwivedi with the help of
others had amassed enormous wealth running into crores of
rupees through the flesh trade racket.

Police claimed they have sufficient evidence to
prosecute them.

Besides the present case, Dwivedi is also booked in
five other criminal cases, including one lodged under the
stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act (MCOCA),
for allegedly running sex syndicate in and around the capital.

Police are yet to file the probe report in the MCOCA
case.

During custodial interrogation, police, at the
instance of the accused, have recovered various documents
relating to properties, investments and bank details, the
chargesheet said.

It was also claimed that Rs 1.55 lakh cash, some gold
ornaments and VCDs were recovered from the car of Dwivedi at
the time of the raid on February 26.
