The application comes two days after the Crime Branch said that the tests confirmed that the torso recovered from Chiplun in Konkan matched with that of Kakkad. 

Gangster Vijay Palande

Palande, who is also accused of killing Delhi-based businessman Arun Tikku, during interrogation, had confessed that he killed Kakkad for money and some personal reasons and dumped his body on Mumbai's outskirts.

Police later recovered decomposed body parts of Kakkad from forests at Kumbharli Ghat in Chiplun.
