Harish Mandvekar, an accused in the murder case of 'matka king' Suresh Bhagat in 2008, allegedly misbehaved with and assaulted police officers as he was being escorted out of Borivali Court on Saturday, police said.
Mandvekar was in Borivali Court on Saturday for the hearing of an extortion case registered against him in Kandlvali police station. He allegedly refused to enter the police vehicle and began arguing with officers. Additional force were called in from Borivali police station.
"He began to push around a few officers. It looked like he might try to escape from custody so more cops were called in. We charged him under Sections 224 (Resistance or obstruction by a person to his lawful apprehension), 322 (Voluntarily causing grievous hurt) and 353 (Assault or criminal force to deter public servant from discharge of his duty) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). He was produced before the holiday court in Bandra on Sunday and remanded in police custody till February 7," said senior inspector Bhagwan Chate.
Last year, after he allegedly misbehaved with some jail authorities and boasted that he would soon escape from jail, Thane Central Jail authorities moved the Sessions Court, seeking permission to handcuff him.
