The UT police have registered a case against former scribe Sanjeev Mahajan, who is lodged at the Burail jail in a property grab case, for allegedly threatening a witness in a murder case registered in 2019.

According to the police, complainant Rohit Kumar, a resident of Mohali, reported that a person who introduced himself as Sanjeev Mahajan allegedly called him from a mobile phone and asked him not to depose before the court against one of the murder suspects, Vikas. Rohit, who is also a witness in the case, had recorded the phone call and shared it with the police. The police are investigating whether the suspect had made the call during a court hearing or from within the jail.

Around two weeks later, the UT police had arrested three members of the Boxer gang, including gang leader Vikas, alias Boxer A case against Mahajan has been registered under Sections 195 A, 506 and 120-B of the IPC at the Sector 17 police station.
