Police begin recording statements of Mahajan family

April 27, 2006 19:36 IST

The police have started recording statements of the family members of Bharatiya Janata Party leader Pramod Mahajan in connection with the assault on him by his younger brother Pravin on Saturday.

A team of Worli police is camping at Hinduja hospital, where it is slated to record statements of Mahajan's wife Rekha, son Rahul and brother in-law and senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde.

Among these persons, Rekha and Rahul Mahajan were the closest to the place of the incident while Munde was among the first who had reached Mahajan's flat at Worli to take him to the hospital.

Mahajan was shot at by Pravin at the BJP leader's Worli residence on Saturday morning.

Mahajan's condition continued to be critical after suffering injuries to vital organs like liver, pancreas and small intestine.
