Nagaraj seeks interrogation in advocate's presence

History-sheeter V Nagaraj, who is wanted in connection with the seizure of demonetised notes at his house, approached the High Court of Karnataka on Wednesday seeking directions for interrogation in the presence of an advocate and video recording of the questioning.

Nagaraj, who is on the run, and his sons Gandhi N and Shastri N moved the court contending that they are ready to surrender before the police and are apprehensive that they might be tortured during interrogation.
During a raid by the Hennur police at Nagaraj's house on April 14, the police found Rs 14 crore in old currency notes. Since then, he and his sons have been absconding and had recently released a video seeking directions to record all their statements on a video camera.

‘Newton’s 3rd law’
During the hearing, Justice A S Bopanna said Newton's third law (every action has an equal and opposite reaction) is applicable here. Disposing of the petition, the judge said the police would take action according to guidelines issued by the Supreme Court.
