    Ravi Pujari has been elusive for over 15 years and is wanted in over 100 cases in various police stations across the country.

    Ravi Pujari has 39 cases registered against him in Bengaluru, 36 cases in Mangaluru, 11 in Udupi, and one each in Mysuru, Hubballi-Dharwad, Kolar and Shivamogga. The Maharashtra Police has 49 cases registered against Ravi Pujari and 26 of them are under the stringent MCOCA (Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act).

    Ravi Pujari began identifying himself as a warrior for the "Hindu cause." State police say that his transformation was an attempt to cover up his crimes.

    In October 2015, he reportedly made threat calls to two Karnataka Congress ministers of the, Ramanath Rai and Abhaychandra Jain. Both leaders are from Dakshina Kannada district and Pujari had allegedly accused them of protecting the murderers of Bajrang Dal activist Prashanth Poojary.

    In January 2018, Tanveer Sait, who was then a minister in Siddaramaiah’s cabinet, had said that Ravi Pujari had allegedly made threat calls and sent messages to him demanding Rs 10 crore.

    In 2009, Ravi Pujari’s alleged henchmen murdered lawyer Naushad Kashimji, advocate for Rashid Malabari, a sharpshooter and an alleged associate of Chhota Shakeel.
