Mumbai: Mumbai Police has arrested Sujit Patkar, a close aide of Shiv Sena (UBT) leader Sanjay Raut, on the complaint of Bharatiya Janata Party leader Kirit Soumya. According to reports, Mumbai Police’s Economic Offenses Wing (EOW) has arrested Rawat’s close friend and businessman Sujit Patkar on Thursday. Patkar has been arrested in a case related to Lifeline Hospital Management Services, an official said. Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had arrested Patkar on charges of money laundering in the same case and he is currently in judicial custody.

Krit Soumya had filed the original complaint.

Bharatiya Janata Party leader Krit Soumya had filed the original complaint regarding the alleged scam in running the Covid centres. He posted about the latest developments on the microblogging platform X (formerly Twitter). The Economic Offenses Wing is probing alleged irregularities in the setting up and management of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) Covid care centres. Patkar’s arrest is the fourth arrest made by the Economic Offenses Wing in this case. According to the official, during the investigation, it was found that the documents submitted for the contract of the Covid centers were fake.

Patkar’s anticipatory bail plea was rejected.
The sessions court had last week rejected Patkar’s anticipatory bail plea in the EOW case. Patkar was then brought to the agency’s office on Thursday and arrested after questioning, the official said. He was produced in court from where he was sent to 5 days police custody. Let us tell you that recently several big leaders of Maharashtra have come under the grip of ED, including NCP leader Anil Deshmukh, Nawab Malik and Sanjay Rawat himself.
