New Delhi, May 25: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday arrested two more people in connection with the murder of activist Narendra Dabholkar. The accused, identified as Advocate Sanjeev Punalekar and Vikram Bhave, have been arrested from Mumbai.
Punalekar is also an advocate for the case and has been advocating for many right-wing accused in different cases. In December 2018, the Pune Sessions Court had granted bail to the accused Amol Kale, Rajesh Bangera and Amit Degvekar as the CBI failed to file charge sheet against them within the stipulated 90-day period.
