A special court on Wednesday framed charges for alleged offences of cheating, forgery and criminal conspiracy against gangster Chhota Rajan and three others in a fake passport case.
Special CBI Judge Vinod Kumar passed the order after Rajan was produced before the court via video conferencing, pleaded not guilty and claimed trial. The charges were framed against Rajan for allegedly procuring a fake passport in the name of Mohan Kumar with the help of three government officials, also accused in the case.
The court ordered trial in the case on daily basis from July 11 noting that Rajan was in judicial custody for a long period and trial should be started on a day to day basis. Besides Rajan, the court also put on trial three retired public servants, Jayashree Dattatray Rahate, Deepak Natvarlal Shah and Lalitha Lakshmanan.
