Shootout specialist Daya Nayak of the Mumbai Police's crime branch on Wednesday appeared before a city court in connection with a disproportionate assets case.

Nayak, a sub-inspector attached to a western Mumbai suburban police station is alleged to have amassed wealth disproportionate to his known sources of income. He appeared before the court along with his wife Komal.

The police officer was suspended after he was booked by the anti-corruption bureau. His residence along with three other locations in the city was raided.

Nayak, who shot into fame for killing more than 83 persons belonging to underworld gangs including Vinod Matkar, Rafik Dabawala and Taufik Kaliya, in separate shootouts during his posting in the crime branch, went into hiding on Friday and surfaced on Wednesday.
