PUNE: The Cen­tral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion (CBI) told a lo­cal court that on the day of ra­tio­nal­ist Dr Naren­dra Dab­holkar’s mur­der, there were two more ac­cused present at the spot apart from the shoot­ers. Ac­cord­ing to the CBI, Nala­sopara-based sus­pect Vaib­hav Raut along with a shooter later dis­man­tled and threw the four pis­tols in a Mum­bai creek.

Dr Dab­holkar was gunned down on Au­gust 20 by two as­sailants at Omkaresh­war Bridge. Along with Raut, the CBI had also ar­rested Sharad Kalaskar from Nala­sopara. A CBI of­fi­cial said, “Dur­ing the in­quiry, Kalaskar said that he and ter­ror sus­pect Sachin An­dure had never seen Dr Dab­holkar, but had read ar­ti­cles about him. It was only on Au­gust 20, when one of the ac­com­plices sig­nalled to the duo, that the hench­men ran to­wards Dab­holkar.” Kalaskar has been re­manded to po­lice cus­tody till Septem­ber 17.
