The Surat police have found incriminating messages — indicating a possible plan to create unrest across the country — sent out from WhatsApp by Mohit Bhojwani,a disciple of Narayan Sai. Bhojwani’s remand ended on Tuesday.

Pressing for Bhojwani’s 10-day further remand before the Chief Judicial Magistrate,the police said on Tuesday that they wanted to probe some leads,including a huge and mysterious cash transfer from Nepal to an unidentified source,involving Bhojwani and some coded WhatsApp messages that seemed provocative.

The CJM’s court extended Bhojwani’s remand till October 18.

The police had arrested Bhojwani,a resident of Jaipur in Rajasthan,from Lal Bungalow in Athwalines here on Friday in connection with the alleged rape case against Sai.

In their remand application,the police mentioned that after the complaint was filed against Sai,Bhojwani sent thousands of instigating messages to different people to carry out unlawful activities.

Some of the messages were: “Bag kahan pahunchana hai? Desh mein aag lagana hein…Bheja hua saman mila to ram ram nahi mila to hari hari…Kya karu kese karu kise maaru ya maru”.

In one of the messages,Bhojwani suggested recruiting youth to spread unrest.

The police have recovered a railway ticket from Jaipur to Jodhpur alongwith four mobile SIM cards of different companies and debit cards of different banks. The police said that Bhojwani had hidden his laptop somewhere in Jaipur from which several emails were sent to different persons after the complaint was registered against Sai.

After going through the remand application and hearing arguments by defence lawyer Kalpesh Desai and district government pleader Nayan Sukhadwala,the court granted three more days of remand.
