NCP leader surrenders before police

Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) leader Deepak Mankar, who had been absconding since June after being booked for abetting the suicide of a local realtor, Jitendra Jagtap, surrendered on Wednesday.

Mr. Mankar presented himself before Assistant Commissioner of Police Jayashree Gaikwad at the Lashkar police station after the Supreme Court rejected his petition for anticipatory bail on July 24, giving him 10 days to surrender. He was later produced before a local court which has remanded him in police custody till August 3.

His petition had earlier been rejected by both the Pune sessions and Bombay High Court.

Mr. Mankar was named in a suicide note by Jagtap, who took his life in the city’s Ghorpadi area in June.
