The rural police, in the red sanders haul case, have intensified their search to nab Navi Mumbai-based builder Jitendra Khatarmal, who is believed to be the financier and mastermind of the smuggling racket.

Police said that his name cropped up while they were interrogating Deepak Jare, the Customs Clearance Agent-turned-smuggler who used to put fake customs seals on the containers at their godowns at Khed taluka.

“We have sent a team to Navi Mumbai to nab Khatarmal,” said API Sandip Yede, Chakan police station.
