Police custody for DSK couple till March 1


PUNE: The ongoing probe against developer D S Kulkarni, stalled because of his health condition , will gather a fresh momentum after special judge J T Utpat ordered his and his wife, Hemanti’s, remand in police custody till March 1.

The court also ordered that in case of any medical emergency during Kulkarni’s custodial interrogation, the investigating officer “shall provide him the best available treatment, preferably in Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital.” Earlier, Kulkarni, also known as DSK, was sent to the Yerawada jail after a medical board of the Sasson General Hospital ruled that he was fit to face the police interrogation. Around 3.30 pm, the police moved the special court seeking his remand for custodial interrogation.

After the court’s order, joint commissioner of police Ravindra Kadam said, “We will secure his (DSK’s) custody from the jail authorities.” The Kulkarnis are facing probe over alleged cheating of several depositors by defaulting on repayment of their dues with interest. On February 17, DSK and his wife were remanded in police custody till February 23.

DSK was shifted to Sassoon General Hospital after he collapsed and slipped into unconsciousness in the police lock-up on February 18. The court then ordered his remand in judicial custody and allowed him to be moved to Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital. The developer was since under a physical evaluation process by the Sassoon medical board.
