Mumbai: A special ATS court has accepted the application filed by the ATS, seeking 30 days’ extension to file a chargesheet in the Nalasopara explosives haul case. The ATS had arrested Sharad Kalaskar, Vaibhav Raut, Sudhanva Gondhalekar, Shrikant Pangarka and Avinash Pawar for possessing explosives and planning to carry out terrorist activities in various places of Maharashtra.
Raja Thackeray, special public prosecutor who represented the ATS, argued that it was a deep-rooted conspiracy with many conspirators and they could not file an incomplete chargesheet.
He further argued that of the 10 terabyte (TB) data recovered from the laptops and mobile phones of the accused, 6 TB had been decoded while 4 TB was yet to be decoded and analysed. Relevant material was yet to be obtained.
Meanwhile, defence lawyer, Sanjiv Punalekar, argued that the “ATS says some more reports are pending but the court has not been informed what those reports are and what is the importance of those reports”
He alleged that the ATS itself had done nothing and only collected information from the Karnataka SIT investigating the Gauri Lankesh murder case and the CBI investigating the Narendra Dabholkar murder case.
