Mumbai: The court has extended the custody of Janhavi Marathe and her associate Sagar Patil till 21st June for further investigation in the case of the death of 17 people due to the collapse of hoarding at a petrol pump in Ghatkopar on May 13.

The crime branch arrested both the accused from Goa. Marathe had applied for anticipatory bail and the sessions court had rejected her plea. She was absconding as her anticipatory bail was rejected.
