Mumbai, Dec 24, 2014: In what has come as a disappointment for the cops, latest reports state that a woman and a boy, said to be the wife and son of underworld don Ravi Poojary who were arrested at Mumbai airport recently, actually had nothing to do with the fugitive.
It is now being said that the woman named Sridevi Santosh Poojary was intercepted at the airport as a Look Out Notice had been issued for a woman of the same name in connection with an extortion case in Mangaluru in 2012. It is learnt, the woman and her son whose name is Aryan (even Ravi Poojary’s son’s name is Aryan) were to take a flight to Abu Dhabi.
Police sources say Ravi Poojary’s wife’s name is Sridevi and that though police had arrested her in a fake passport case in 2005, upon her release on bail she had fled the nation with a passport in the name of Sridevi Santosh Poojary.
The mother and son detained in Mumbai are now being questioned by the Mangaluru Police to verify their identity. Sources say they are residents of Borivili in Mumbai and even a neighbour of theirs, a retired police officer from Mumbai has confirmed that the two have nothing to do with Ravi Poojary.
