HC to hear serial blast accused bail plea on Tuesday

delhi Updated: Jul 13, 2009 21:53 IST

The Delhi High Court on Monday asked the city police to find out whether Saquinb Nissar, a suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorist allegedly involved in last year's September 13 serial blasts in New Delhi, would appear for his MBA exam in the custody of Gujarat Police.

Saquib, now in the custody of Gujarat Police, is seeking bail to appear the examination scheduled to start on July 18.

Justice Geeta Mittal asked the Delhi police to contact the Gujarat police and inform the court by Tuesday.

The High Court had earlier refused to grant interim bail when he was to appear in the fifth semester exam and allowed him to write his paper from jail.

The police had already filed the chargesheet against Saquib Nissar and other accused Mohd Saif, Zeeshan Ahmed, Zia-ur Rehman and Mohd Shakeel in the September 13 serial blasts cases.

They have been accused of murder, attempt to murder and waging war against the nation among other offences under the Indian Penal Code, the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Explosive Substances Act.
