The special Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act (TADA) court on Thursday rejected the application made by extradited underworld gangster Abu Salem claiming he would be implicated in a false case by the state police.

The application also stated that there was a threat to Salem's life from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the state police. Special judge GA Sanap disposed of the letter observing that no untoward incident had taken place to proved Salem's fear.

The court also said the application cannot be accepted without any material showing that the CBI or the police have made any attempt or plan against Salem. "The jail authorities and local arms department will ensure his (Salem's) safety," said Sanap.

Salem had moved the application before the special court on September 22. "In order to sabotage my efforts to seek justice and uphold my human rights the CBI or the state police is likely to implicate me in false case or try to eliminate me in a fake encounter while being produced before the trial courts," his application said.
