MUMBAI: Anti-corruption Bureau (ACB) on Saturday moved a special court seeking non-bailable warrant against suspended police inspector Daya Nayak for his failure to surrender in a disproportionate assets case.
The court asked prosecutor R V Kini to file an application seeking warrant and said it would pass an order later in the day. ACB told the court that Nayak was not (not) traceable and steps taken by them to arrest him had failed. The Supreme Court had on Friday refused to give relief to Nayak and asked him to surrender. The apex court observed that it would not interfere with the order of Bombay high court which rejected the anticipatory bail plea of Nayak.
The court also extended the judicial custody of Nayak’s associate P Manivelan upto March four.Manivelan is accused of helping Nayak launder his allegedly ill gotten wealth. Earlier, Nayak, his wife Komal and associate Rajendra Padte had moved a sessions court for anticipatory bail but their plea was rejected. They moved the Bombay High Court which rejected the bail plea of Nayak and Padte but gave bail to Komal. Being aggrieved, Nayak moved the Supreme Court which also did not consider his plea for anticipatory bail and instead asked him to surrender.
