Mahajan Saga Takes New TurnMumbai: BJP leader Pramod Mahajan’s younger brother Pravin, who had told the police on Saturday that he would have emptied all six bullets into his elder brother had his pistol not got jammed, has expressed his desire to visit the BJP leader who is fighting for his life at Hinduja Hospital.
An officer from the probe team said Pravin, who is presently in the Agripada lockup, had kept to himself and showed no traces of emotion when he was produced in court on Sunday. He reportedly borrowed newspapers from the police guards at the lock-up and read every bit of information on Mahajan. “We have seen him devour all the news about Mahajan,’’ a source said, adding that on the first three days when he spent a few hours at the Worli police station, he would intently watch TV for news on his brother and his own family.
“On the third day Pravin told a policeman, who was posted in the room at Worli police station where he was being questioned, that he wanted to see his elder brother,’’ the source said. However, senior officers refused to say whether Pravin’s wish would be fulfilled.
