Police sought 10-day custody

The police sought a 10-day custody to conduct a thorough investigation. This includes determining who requested the interview, checking Nawale’s history, exploring if similar interviews were given to other media channels, and investigating any involvement of political figures, considering Nawale’s claim to be associated with the same party as Yogesh Sawant, the NCP worker who circulated the video and was arrested by Santacruz police. Initially remanded to judicial custody for 14 days, a revision application led to police custody of five days for Sawant.
