BENGALURU: The stage is all set to bring back dreaded underworld don Ravi Poojari to India, announced Karnataka home minister Basavaraj Bommai on Sunday.

“All legal hurdles have been cleared to bring back Poojari. A court in Senegal had cleared his handing over process. There are some formalities pending at the international level. As soon as they are completed, we will bring him back,” Bommai stated.

 

“International agencies are in touch with us and our officers are stationed there. They will bring him back soon,” he added.

International don Ravi Poojari is wanted in as many as 70 criminal cases in Karnataka alone. He is wanted in cases of extortion and murder and was active in the Mumbai underworld. He was part of the Dawood gang and later, is said to have worked with another don, Chota Rajan for some time. Claiming to be an enemy of Dawood, Poojari reportedly finished off all his associates and anti-India elements in the country. His men were involved in a shootout on the Shabanam Developers office in Bengaluru in which a lady staffer was killed in the firing. He is also said have been involved in the shootout case of Shahid Azmi, an advocate from Mumbai. There are cases against him in Kerala, Gujarat, and Maharashtra.

Senegal officials caught him after India issued a Red Corner notice against him in January 2019.

However, he managed to secure bail before state police officers could get him in their custody. The government then issued a Red Corner notice  and he was caught by Senegal authorities. This time, the state police department has stationed a team of officers with proper documents for submission. It is to be seen how the police deal with Ravi Poojari once they manage to bring him back.
