Mumbai police directed to probe Adnan case ‘leak’

Mumbai: Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister R. R. Patil has directed city police to probe which police official was responsible for tipping off a TV news channel about the abduction of Adnan Patrawala, who was later killed by the kidnappers.

“Mr. Patil has taken a serious note of news reports that the abductors panicked after watching news of kidnap on TV channels and as a result, killed the boy,” a senior official told PTI.

Four persons have so far been arrested in connection with the abduction and murder of 16-year old Patrawala, who was abducted on Saturday night and a ransom of Rs two crore was sought for his release.

However, his body was found in a vehicle in Navi Mumbai on August 20.

The four who have been arrested in the case are Rajiv Dhariya Sujith Nair, Ayush Bhat and Khimesh Ambavat .

“Dhariya is suspected to have played a major role in the kidnap and murder along with the other accused Sujit Nair,” a police official said.

Dhariya was among the group that Adnan used to play pool with at a mall in suburban Malad.

Mr. Patil’s directives to probe leakage of sensitive police information comes in the wake of leakage of CD of interrogation of an accused, in July 11 serial train blasts that rocked Mumbai last year. --PTI
