A fresh production warrant was issued against inter-state gangster Brijesh Singh by a Delhi court after the Mumbai Police failed to produce him in a seven-year-old extortion case.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjeev Jain directed the Mumbai police to produce Singh before the court on August 14.

The court had in June issued a similar warrant against Singh for today.

Singh is lodged in the Arthur Road jail in Mumbai in connection with his alleged role in the JJ Hospital shooting case registered there.

The court had on several occasions issued production warrants against him in connection with the extortion case registered here in the year 2001.

Singh, who allegedly worked for the Dawood gang in 1993 Mumbai serial blasts, is suspected to have international links. He was on the run for over two decades and was living in Orissa for the last two years.

Singh, wanted in as many as 24 cases, carried a cash reward of Rs five lakh on his head and was arrested by the Special Cell sleuths of the Delhi Police from Bhubaneswar on January 24 this year.

The court had on June nine rejected his bail plea stating his release would not be in the interest of justice as he was allegedly involved in a number of cases including that of murder dacoity and ransom.
