Pune, October 2, 2019 : After the news of release of gangster Nilesh Ghaiwal from Yerwada Central Jail on Wednesday, spread like wildfire, the Pune city police swung into action and issued order to make him leave Pune.
Ghaiwal and his accomplices were lodged in jail in connection with a 2017 dacoity case registered with Koregaon Park police station. Corporator Vivek Yadav had lodged the complaint against him. Police had also charged Ghaiwal under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA). He was recently granted bail by the Bombay High Court. Accordingly, the jail officials released him on Wednesday.
DCP (Crime Branch) Bachchan Singh said, “In view of elections, Crime branch is checking criminals on record on regular basis. The lists have been circulated unitwise and daily review is being done. Similarly all police stations are taking necessary preventive action. Today Nilesh Ghaiwal (criminal on record) was released out on bail. He is being served 144(2) CrPC notice for 1 month by DCP (Zone3), during which he won’t be able to enter Pune. The Crime branch is keeping a close watch on activities of gangs and necessary preventive steps are being taken.”
The section 144 (power to issue order in urgent cases of nuisance of apprehended danger) of the Criminal Procedure Code’s sub-section states, “an order under this section may, in cases of emergency or in cases where the circumstances do not admit of the serving in due time of a notice upon the person against whom the order is directed, be passed ex parte.”
