Rahul wheeled into custody

June 06, 2006

The Delhi police on Tuesday produced Rahul Mahajan at the Patiala House court in the capital, soon after he was discharged from the Apollo Hospital.

The court remanded him in police custody for two days after the cops sought for a five-day custody.

The cops escorted Rahul in a wheelchair.

The police arrested Rahul on Monday after registering a case against him under the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act.

Rahul was on life support after a late-night drinking binge on June 1.

His late father Pramod Mahajan's secretary Bibek Maitra had died on the way to the hospital.
