Munde finishes testimony in Mahajan case
April 18, 2007
Bharatiya Janata Party leader Gopinath Munde leaves the trial court on April 18 after finishing his testimony in the Pramod Mahajan murder case.
Ab yachna nahi ran hoga! Jivan vijay ke sath jiye ya maran hoga (It is war now, no more skirmishes! Either one lives victorious or embraces death) -- according to Munde, Pramod received this message a few days after Pravin had gone to Pramod's residence, demanded Rs one crore and said that he would face the consequences for not paying him the amount.
After receiving the message, Pramod asked me to speak to Pravin about it, the BJP leader added.
On April 17, Munde identified Pramod's cell phone and also the threatening SMS before Additional Sessions Judge Shrihari Davare. A day later, Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam submitted a six-page supplementary charge sheet containing the statement and certificate provided by Reliance Infocom officer Gyanendra Upadhyay about the message.
