Extortion case: Patiala House Court issues fresh production warrant against Abu Salem

New Delhi, Feb 13: Patiala House Court on Tuesday issued fresh production warrant against gangster Abu Salem in connection with 2002 businessman extortion case.

The court will next hear the case on February 16 for final arguments.

On January 16, Salem claimed that the prosecution did not have enough evidence against him in the case.

Through his counsel, the gangster also said that his trial in the case violated an order by which he was extradited to India from Portugal in 2005.

Salem is facing trial for allegedly seeking Rs. 5 crores as protection money from Delhi businessman Ashok Gupta in 2002.

He has already been granted bail in connection with the case; however, he continues to be in prison in various other cases, including the 1993 Mumbai blasts case.
