UNDERWORLD DON Babloo Srivastava, desperate to come out of confinement, has hired a battery of legal luminaries working for his equally dreaded counterpart Abu Salem in Mumbai.

A barrister from England Harjoyt Singh recently joined the Babloo camp of legal luminaries by appearing in the special TADA Court here on Wednesday.

Accompanied by lawyers Nand Lal Jaiswal (Kanpur), Gopal Narain Mishra and Karimuddin Ahmad Khan from Lucknow, Singh discussed the details of Custom Commissioner LD Arora murder case in which Babloo is a prime accused.

Babloo and other co-accused Mange and Kamal Saini on Wednesday appeared before the TADA court soon after they arrived from Bareilly jail.

The proceedings about Mange’s involvement were going on in the court and the prosecution made pleadings to the court about the final argument. However, this was objected by the defence counsel and they pleaded to the court for the disposal of two applications.

One put up by Kamal Saini pleading to the court that TADA laws should not apply on them and another was put up by Babloo that he was brought under the Extradition treaty for trial under 302 IPC, therefore the TADA rule did not apply on him.

These applications are still pending in the court.

Besides, they also referred the apex court ruling, which was given, when Kamal Saini had taken up the case with apex court, which directed in its ruling that accused should plead the court about the same and before the final disposal of the case, all their pending applications should be disposed of.

Taking note of pleadings made by the defence counsel, court directed prosecution to make their objections by next hearing on February 23.
