Serial blasts case: Court issues notice to police

delhi Updated: Apr 27, 2009 19:24 IST

A Delhi court on Saturday issued notice to the police on a plea of a suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorist and a serial blasts accused seeking a copy of the alleged electronic evidence collected against him in cases relating to the synchronised explosions that had rocked the national capital on September 13 last year.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja asked the police to file their reply to the application of accused Zia-ur Rehman and fixed the matter for May 12 for arguments.

Rehman, through the application filed by counsel M S Khan, sought a copy of the compact disc containing the images allegedly retrieved from the mobile phone of Indian Mujahideen operative Atif Ameen who was killed during the Batla House encounter here on September 19, last year.

He also sought a copy of compact disc containing alleged call details of the accused running into 1074 pages, besides the images of the data allegedly retrieved from the lap-top of Ameen.

"The accused is entitled to get copies of documents which are not even mentioned in the list of documents of the chargesheet but were being relied upon by the prosecution in the chargesheet," Khan argued.

Public Prosecutor Rajiv Mohan, on his part, opposed the plea, saying the documents contained objectionable material which could lead to communal disharmony if released at this stage.
