Court rejects state CID report on builder Rajendra Chaturvedi
Mumbai: A local magistrate's court at Andheri rejected the state CID report which said that the case filed against builder Rajendra Chaturvedi is false.
"The court has rejected the report and has directed the CID to investigate the case again," defence lawyer Laxman Kanal, who represented a senior IPS officer in the case, said.
The CID report said that the complaint lodged by the police against Chaturvedi in 2007 alleging that he had ordered the killing of another builder Rashmikant Shah is false.
The CID report had also alleged that some cops had framed him the case.
The case dates back to February 25, 2007 when Juhu police arrested four men for planning to kill Rashmikant Shah outside Hotel Holiday Inn and subsequently alleged to have recovered a country-made revolver and Rs 12.5 lakhs from them.
Thereafter, builder Rajendra Chaturvedi and a spiritual guru, one Baba Udaynath, were arrested on the charge that they had given a contract to the four shooters to kill Shah.
Chaturvedi spent 41 days in custody and was finally released on bail. Later, the case was transferred to the state CID.
