"As per Vijay Gunjal's statement recorded on September 11, 2003, Gunjal had accompanied advocate A R Kulkarni in August 2002, when he went to meet Mulani. Also that A R Kulkarni subsequently told him that he had given Rs15 lakh to Mulani. Vijay had told him that in spite of giving Rs 15 lakh to Mulani, the names of the four accused were not deleted, " Special Public Prosecutor Raja Thakre said.
