The CBI is likely to file its chargesheet this week against suspended NCP member of Parliament Padamsinh Patil in connection with the murder of Congress leader Pawanraje Nimbalkar.
Patil was arrested on June 6 for his alleged involvement in the murder of Nimbalkar and his driver at Navi Mumbai on June 3, 2006, allegedly due to political and business rivalry.
Six other accused have also been arrested by CBI in the case--Satish Mandade, Mohan Shukla, Kailash Yadav, Pintu Singh, Parasmal Jain and Dinesh Tiwari.
"The chargesheet will be filed by this week before the Panvel metropolitan magistrate against the seven accused. All the accused will be charged under criminal conspiracy and double murder," a senior CBI official said.
He said the chargesheet would include the statements of a few of the accused, statements of witnesses and documentary evidence against Patil and the other accused.
All the accused are now in judicial custody.
Patil is undergoing treatment for malaria in a government hospital in Navi Mumbai.
