The sessions court on Wednesday denied anticipatory bail to Nilima Chavan, who is accused of mentally harassing Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sudhir More.
The Kurla GRP is in the process of issuing LOC (Look Out Circular) against Nilima Chavan as they fear that she would go abroad.
“Since the day FIR had been registered against her, she has kept her phone off. We even went to her residence but she was not there. A notice under CrPc 41 had been issued against her but she didn`t respond, then she applied for anticipatory bail. The court rejected it and now we are under the process of issuing a LOC against her,” said a GRP official posted in Kurla.
The GRP had claimed that they have enough evidence to arrest her, such as phone recordings of Chavan and More.
“We have enough evidence to arrest her, full attempts have been made to apprehend her. After the court rejected her bail plea now we fear that she might go to the USA,” said an GRP official.
On August 31, Shiv Sena (UBT) faction leader Sudhir More was found dead on the railway tracks near Ghatkopar. Based on his son`s statement, the GRP had registered a FIR against Nilima Chavan under IPC section 306 (abetment to suicide) on September 1.
More`s son in his statement to police alleged that Chavan had been calling More persistently despite him not liking it.
According to the police, Samar More, son of Sudhir More, had said that in the month of June his father had undergone a spine surgery, after which Sudhir told Samar to call Chavan and convey his message that doesn`t wish to talk with Chavan, however she allegedly kept calling More.
Samar said he doesn`t know what kind of conversation More and Chavan had.
The GRP police have recorded Sudhir More`s brother Sunil More and sister in law`s Snehal More`s statement in this matter.
“I received a call from Nilima Chavan and she stated that my brother Sudhir More had met with an accident, after which she cut the call. I called my brother but he didn`t receive my phone call. When I called for the second time a police officer had picked up the call after which I got to know about my brother`s demise,” said Sunil More while speaking with Mid-Day.
