Santro Ravi back to judicial custody

January 31, 2023

Mysore/Mysuru: K.S. Manjunath alias Santro Ravi, who was in CID custody, was produced before a City Court, which has sent him back to judicial custody.

Following a complaint from a woman (said to be Santro Ravi’s second wife), Vijayanagar Police had registered a case against Santro Ravi under the provisions of Dowry Prohibition Act, SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and under IPC Section 506, 498A, 504, 376, 270, 313 and 323 on Jan. 2. Ravi had gone absconding.

Santro Ravi, along with two of his accomplices — 45-year-old Ramji and 35-year-old Satish Kumar — was arrested at Ahmedabad in Gujarat on Jan. 13 and brought to Mysuru in the early hours of Jan. 14 where ADGP (Law and Order) Alok Kumar had interrogated him for more than an hour.

Even as City Police produced Santro Ravi, who was in 14-day judicial custody, before the city’s 6th Additional District and Sessions Court on Jan. 16 to seek the custody of Santro Ravi and two others for further questioning, the State Government transferred the case to CID the same day.

The CID Police team, led by Dy.SP Narasimhamurthy, had submitted an application seeking custody of all the three accused on Jan. 17 for further questioning and the Judge, who heard their plea, handed over Santro Ravi and two others to CID custody till Jan. 30.

But the CID produced him before the City Court on Jan. 28 itself and the Court remanded him (Ravi) to judicial custody.
