MUM­BAI: Ku­mar Kr­ishna Pil­lai alias Ku­mar Pil­lai, a tex­tile en­gi­neer-turned-un­der­world gang­ster, could be ex­tra­dited from Sin­ga­pore in the first week of June.

A com­mit­tal court in Sin­ga­pore, where Pil­lai was ar­rested in Fe­bru­ary this year, has cleared the decks for the gang­ster’s ex­tra­di­tion, fol­low­ing which the Mum­bai crime branch has formed a team of five of­fi­cers to bring him back to In­dia. Although bleak, the gang­ster still has a 15-day win­dow to move an ap­peal be­fore a higher court against the Sin­ga­pore’s lower court rul­ing.
