Naresh Shenoy’s Custody Extended up to Jul 18

Mangaluru: A court hearing the case of Baliga murder has extended the judicial custody of Naresh Shenoy up to July 18.

Shenoy is the prime accused in the murder of Vinayak Baliga, an RTI activist and BJP worker.

The period of earlier custody had got over on Monday. Hence he was presented in court on the day. On hearing the case, the judicial officer extended the custody up to July 18.

Shenoy was absconding after the murder and remained elusive for three months by changing his base day by day. Just ahead of the 90-day deadline, he was arrested by the CCB at Hejamadi last month.

Courts up to the high court level had rejected his anticipatory bail applications. As the hearing is in progress, his advocates have tried to plead to the court that he is suffering from kidney problems.

The family members of Baliga have firmly opposed the plea saying that someone who had moved around to different places to escape arrest could not have suffered from kidney ailment without regular medical attention.
