'Celebrity' criminal lawyer arrested in Mumbai after accused of forgery to help other celebrities

Mumbai criminal lawyer Ashok Saraogi, who has represented gangster Abu Salem, was arrested on Sunday and sent to jail until 25 April for alleged cheating and forgery to help a client grab land, reported the Times of India.

Lawyers Sohel Kazi and I V Y Tauro, co-accused with Saraogi, will spend three days each in custody starting Monday.

Saraogi was currently representing Rahul Raj in the deceased television actress Pratyusha Bannerjee’s suicide case.

Saraogi was arrested after he withdrew an anticipatory bail application – his third to avoid arrest in the case where he is accused of helping businessman Ashish Bagaria and his father Santosh Kumar Bagaria usurp nine parcels of land belonging Ashish’s estranged wife Nickee in Raigad – in the Supreme Court.
