MUM­BAI: For­mer world bil­liards cham­pion Michael Fer­reira on Thurs­day sought a day’s time to sur­ren­der in con­nec­tion with the Qnet cheat­ing case.

On Wed­nes­day Fer­reira’s lawyer San­deep Karnik moved a bail ap­pli­ca­tion in the Ma­ha­rash­tra Pro­tec­tion of In­ter­est of De­pos­i­tors (MPID) Act court plead­ing that he would sur­ren­der on Thurs­day morn­ing.

In the evening, Fer­reira ap­peared be­fore the court with his coun­sel Abad Ponda and pleaded that he has time to sur­ren­der till night as the apex court, while re­ject­ing his an­tic­i­pa­tory bail plea, gave a week’s time to sur­ren­der.

Even though spe­cial pub­lic pros­e­cu­tor Pradeep Gharath ob­jected, the court told Fer­reira that he can sur­ren­der ei­ther a the po­lice sta­tion or in the court.
