Purohit's judicial custody extended in arms license case
February 09, 2009 22:15 IST
The army officer was produced before Judge V V Joshi as his remand in the arms license case ended on Monday, Purohit's counsel Avinash Bhide told PTI.
The case was filed by Pune resident Shirish Date in Nashik on November 16. In his complaint, Date had claimed that the license for Purohit's gun had been obtained by his friend from the army quota using fake documents.
The court also rejected Purohit's request for home food. The officer had complained about quality of food being served to him in the jail. Bhide, in an oral submission, said Purohit's grandmother, who is based in Pune, is ill and could not come to Nashik to meet him. Hence, he requested the court to allow his client to talk to his grandmother on telephone, but the plea was turned down.
Purohit was arrested in early November last year for the September 29 bomb blast in Malegao. Six persons were killed in the explosion. He is one of the 14 accused in the case.
