Journalist Syed Mohammad Kazmi, who is an accused in the February 13 terror attack on an Israeli diplomat, moved the Delhi HC on Wednesday.
He sought directions to resume his hearing before a sessions judge as against extension of the probe period in the case.
Kazmi, in judicial custody ever since his arrest on March 6, had moved the sessions court against an order of the chief metropolitan magistrate (CMM) allowing Delhi Police to extend the period of investigation from 90 to 180 days. Justice Manmohan will hear Kazmi's plea on July 13.
Earlier, the high court had said that till it decided the law relating to power of magistrates to deal with cases lodged under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA), the court of CMM would keep on dealing with such cases.
The issue came before the HC after a sessions judge questioned the power of a magisterial court to deal with cases under UAPA.
