Mahesh Bhatt

On Wednesday, a special court framed charges against 12 members of Ravi Pujari gang who are accused in a plot to attack filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt. The 8 members were charged under eight counts by the special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) judge V V Patil.

Speaking to the media, special public prosecutor Pradeep Gharat said the accused gang members had pleaded not guilty and will now face the trial. The 12 members accused in the Mahesh Bhatt attack case were among those 14 members of the gang who were arrested in 2014. Following their arrest, the city police had claimed that the gang was planning to kill Mahesh Bhatt.

The police said that Ravi Pujari operates from outside the country and wanted to create fear in Bollywood so that he could extort money from the celebrities.
