The Mumbai Crime Branch's Anti Extortion Cell (AEC) filed a chargesheet against the fugitive gangster known as Prasad Pujari and two others before the Metropolitan Magistrate Court. 

The charge sheet contains 570 pages and the statements of 12 witnesses.

This is pertaining to the case where Prasad Pujari has contacted two businessmen from South Mumbai to settle their financial disputes.

In the month of February this year, the AEC had arrested Mitesh Shah, 38, and Popatlal Porwal, 59, for allegedly resorting to help of fugitive wanted accused Pujari to settle their matter.

According to the charge sheet filed by the police, Porwal and the other businessman have been involved in a financial dispute for a year. Both men had filed police complaints against each other respectively. However, considering the civil nature of the dispute, the police advised them to take the matter to court.
