Noted criminal lawyer Shrikant Shivade, who had handled high-profile cases involving film actors Salman Khan and Shiney Ahuja, and represented two accused in the 2G spectrum case, died at a private hospital here in Maharashtra on Wednesday due to prolonged illness, sources close to his family said.

He was 67.

Shivade was diagnosed with leukaemia (blood cancer), they said.

A law graduate from the Indian Law Society, Shivade represented actors Salman Khan in the 2002 hit-and-run case and actor Shiney Ahuja, who was booked in a rape case in 2009, in his career.

He had represented two accused in 2G spectrum cases and had also appeared for Peter Mukerjea in the Sheena Bora murder case. He had also represented diamond merchant Bharat Shah.

The celebrity lawyer is survived by wife, a son and a daughter.
