Mumbai, Feb 23: Mumbai Sessions Court on Tuesday remanded gangster Ravi Pujari to police custody till March 9 in the 2016 Ghazali restaurant firing case.

Ravi Pujari is wanted in more than 49 cases in Mumbai.

Earlier on Saturday, a Bengaluru court granted the custody of Ravi Pujari to Mumbai Police.

Milind Bharambe said that Mumbai Police sought the custody of gangster Ravi Pujari, who is lodged in a Karanataka Jail, in connection with the 2016 Ghazali Hotel firing case.

Pujari, who was wanted in several cases, including ones related to heinous crimes like murder and extortion, was extradited to Bengaluru in February 2020 from Senegal.

The gangster, who parted ways with underworld don Chhota Rajan, had jumped bail after he was arrested in Senegal in 2019 and had escaped to South Africa, where he was involved in drug trafficking and extortion.

According to sources in the Indian intelligence, Ravi Pujari was hiding under the false identity of Anthony Fernandes, a Burkina Faso passport holder, in a remote village in South Africa.

Bengaluru, Feb 22: The Karnataka government has decided to crack the whip on citizens violating covid-19 guidelines by people during large gatherings like marriages, conventions and rallies.

According to reports, the state government is mulling to deploy marshals to marriage parties to enforce wearing of masks and social distancing rules across Karnataka.

Soon after holding a review meeting with all DHOs in the backdrop of a surge in cases in Kerala and Maharashtra, Health and Medical Education Minister Dr K Sudhakar told media persons that a formal order in this regard will be issued by today.

“We have already issued guidelines for food-handlers in catering and hotel business. But what is worrying is the lapse in marriage halls. Be it public, VIPs or VVIPs, no person is wearing masks and adhering to social distance. Hence, we have decided to deploy marshals to check on that in every marriage event and by Monday evening an official order will be issued,” Sudhakar said.

According to sources in the health department, the local administration will deploy a marshal for every marriage event to check on the Covid-19 rule's compliance. If any person is caught violating the rules, they will be penalized besides slapping notice and hefty fines on the organizers.

Bengaluru, Feb 16: Karnataka has issued new guidelines mandating all those coming from Kerala to the State to carry a negative RT-PCR test report not older than 72 hours. 

Not just that, it has ruled that all those who have come to the State from Kerala in the last two weeks, exempting those with a negative test report not older than 72 hours, to be mandatorily subjected to COVID-19 test.

A similar restriction was placed earlier in the month in four districts bordering Kerala, but it was expanded to the entire State on Tuesday. This comes in the light of a COVID-19 cluster at a nursing college in Bengaluru being traced back mostly to Kerala returnees, even as the neighbouring State is reporting a high number of cases every day.

The guidelines say all the students in engineering and other professional colleges who have recently arrived from Kerala have to be tested for COVID-19. It calls for hostels, hotels, resorts, homestays, dormitories, and residential communities to ensure that persons checking in after travelling from Kerala have a COVID-19 negative certificate. 

It also asks hostels to ensure strict implementation of COVID-19 safety guidelines and appeals to students to not frequently travel to Kerala unless strongly justified. The guidelines call for ramping up testing and strengthening COVID-19 surveillance at all education institutions that accommodate students who have travelled from Kerala.

Commissioner of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike N. Manjunath Prasad said those who try to enter the State/city without a negative RT-PCR report would have to undergo mandatory quarantine until they are tested and results are out.
