Prime accused in Malegaon blast case Lt Col Srikant Prasad Purohit on Friday made a written submission in a court in Pune alleging that Mumbai ATS threatened to eliminate him in an encounter and tried to extract confession from his under duress.

Purohit, remanded in 14-day judicial custody by Magistrate G G Italekar in a 2003 case of alleged forgery in procuring an arms license for one Milind Date in Pune from J and K, sat in the court room to write his grievances after the judge asked him whether he had any complaints regarding his two-day police remand which expired on Friday.

"I have no complaints against Pune police. But I want to submit in writing my grievances," he said. Purohit's advocate Srikant Shivde told the court that the accused did not want to air his grievances in an open court and would prefer to put them in writing.

The contents of Purohit's written submission were informed by his lawyer to the media afterwards.
