Lawyer held for harbouring criminal's mother, wife – Times of India

PUNE: The Bharati Vidyapeeth police on Sunday afternoon arrested a woman lawyer from Pune for allegedly harbouring mother and wife of city-based criminal Bappu Nair, who was arrested earlier this year and booked for offences under the Mahrashtra Control of Organised Crime (MCOC) Act.

Later in the evening, police also filed a case against the lawyer with Yerwada police stating that the lawyer had abused the policemen in an attempt to avert the arrest. Police booked her under section 353 (Use of criminal force to prevent public servant from performing his duty) of the Indian Penal Code.

A team headed by senior police inspector Vijaysinh Gaikwad arrested the woman lawyer, who is looking after the cases filed against Nair and his family members.

Nair and his family members have been booked under the stringent provisions of MCOC Act in 2015.

Nair was arrested from Noida in May this year, by the city crime branch. Police had also booked his wife and mother under the MCOC.

A senior police officer told TOI that the lawyer in question allegedly helped Nair’s mother and wife to flee and evade arrest by the police.

Police claimed that the lawyer also submitted a fake and fabricated affidavit in a city court which is hearing cases against Nair.
