Laila case: Crime branch to bring Tak to Mumbai

The Mumbai Police crime branch will bring Pervez Tak to Mumbai and produce him in a local court in four days.

The crime branch is probing the kidnapping case of Laila and her family.

Forest contractor Pervez Tak, arrested by Jammu and Kashmir police, had reportedly told the interrogators that Laila and others were shot dead in Maharashtra in 2011.

Meanwhile, the crime branch claimed to have recovered around 1,000 photographs of Laila with many high ranking officials and politicians while searching her house on Saturday in suburban Oshiwara.

The starlet and her family - mother Shelina, elder sister Hazmina, twin siblings Zara and Imran and another relative- went missing from Mumbai in February 2011.

A case of kidnapping was registered at the Oshiwara police station in Mumbai on Friday, on the complaint of her father Nadir Patel.

According to the complaint, Tak and his accomplice Asif had kidnapped Laila and others.
