Notorious underworld criminal Ravi Poojary brought to Bengaluru


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Feb 24: Notorious underworld fugitive Ravi Poojary, wanted in a number of cases of murder, extortion, death threat etc since the last three decades, has finally been brought to the city. The police have heaved a sigh of relief at this development, as their efforts since the last 18 months to get him deported from Senegal have finally paid dividends.

Because of the absence of an exchange treaty between Senegal and India, the issue was hanging fire and finally the court in that country had handed over Poojary to Bengaluru police two days back after legal hitches were cleared.

Ravi, who arrived at 12.40 am on Monday by flight, is being questioned at Madivala. He is likely to be produced in the court today. Ravi faces 39 cases in Mangaluru and 38 in Bengaluru. Many of them pertain to posing death threats, making extortion calls etc. Legislators Tanveer Sait, H M Revanna and former MLA Anil Lad, are among those who were threatened by him of death if they failed to pay up the money he demanded.

Ravi Poojary is a native of Malpe. He went to Mumbai at a young age and got involved with underworld and criminal activities. He had risen to notoriety by murdering Bala Jwala and later had joined underworld fugitive Chota Rajan gang. In 1990, he had escaped to Dubai. From there, he had threatened Bollywood actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Akshay Kumar and Salman Khan besides director Karan Johar, and producer Rakesh Roshan. He had also got involved with the murder of Omprakash Kureja through his henchmen at Mumbai and tried to finish off some builders who did not heed to his demand to pay extortion money, it is said.

    As usual, when being escorted to the Court, he will suddenly feel the urge to go to the toilet, the police will take him to a private toilet. And the criminal will escape and the police are helpless. This has hsppened in Ravi Poojari's case already and is going to happen again. Just wait and see.

    The facts that his hands are covered means, he is already exerting his influence on our authorities to show public, he is not really a criminal, and don't be surprised if he joins a political party which will use him to create even more divide...

    Poojary is involved in threatening, extortiona and murder and Pak is less interested in providing such criminals with royal shelter. They want guys like Dawood, Chota Shakeel, etc. etc. who do anti-India activities, such as terrorism, bombings, printing of fake currency in addition to extortion and murder.

    To some who comment whether he might join this party or that its a known fact that all political parties have " black sheep " in their ranks !
    No party is ' Snow White ' .
    It was made clear by Mr.Sanjay Raut of the Maharashtra Vikas Agadi that one of our
    Prime Ministers used to meet the notorious Karim Lala when in Mumbai ! There are photographs too as proof !
    No need for anyone to act holier than thou ...
