The Mumbai crime branch submitted 1,735-page chargesheet against six already arrested accused and three wanted persons in the special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime (MCOC) court. The chargesheet included various investigation documents incorporated in three volumes, PTI reported citing an official.
