MCOCA case: Court issues production warrant against Babloo
A Delhi court on Wednesday issued fresh production warrants against underworld don Babloo Srivastava after the Uttar Pradesh police once again failed to produce him before a court in New Delhi from a jail in Bareilly in connection with a MCOCA case.
"Issue fresh production warrant against the accused Om Prakash Srivastava (Babloo) for ensuring his presence on July six," Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) JR Aryan said.
The ASJ, who was to hear arguments on framing of charges against Babloo for allegedly running organised crime syndicate in New Delhi during 1983-1997, also issued production warrants against co-accused Fazal-ur- Rehman, lodged in the Tihar jail.
The court had to adjourn the proceedings on April 16, this year after the UP police contended that due to the on going elections, it lacked the requisite number of cops to bring him in New Delhi.
The state police was pre-occupied with the Lok Sabha polls process, the case prosecutor told the court.
Earlier, Babloo had contended that he was wrongly booked under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act (MCOCA) as there was only one FIR lodged against him.
