A Special Court on Thursday rejected the bail applications of suspended police sub-inspector Daya Nayak and his alleged associate Rajendra Padte in a disproportionate assets case.

Nayak and Padte, arrested by Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) on February 20, are currently in judicial custody.

This is for the second time that the court has rejected bail to Nayak and Padte. Their first bail applications were rejected on the same day they surrendered before the court.

Additional Sessions Judge S P Mahajan also ordered, following Nayak's plea, that he be kept in ACB lock-up in Bhoiwada -- where he was currently lodged. Padte, however, would be shifted to Arthur Road Jail here.

Since Nayak is now in judicial custody, ACB wanted to shift him from its lock-up facility at Bhoiwada to a regular prison.

But Nayak, who feared danger to his life in a regular jail as he had killed scores of underworld gangsters in encounters, said wanted to continue at Bhoiwada.

Earlier, opposing Nayak and Padte's bail applications, additional public prosecutor RV Kiny argued that if released, Nayak might threaten witnesses.
