Ghatkopar blast: Witness turns hostile

india Updated: Oct 31, 2006 04:59 IST

The Mumbai crime branch suffered a major setback in the Ghatkopar blast case, when the key witness turned hostile in the POTA court on Monday.

Dilip Wankhade, conductor of the BEST bus, which was rocked by an explosion near LBS Marg on July 28, 2003, told judge SS Joshi that he had not seen anybody nor did he suspect anyone of having planted the bomb in the bus.

In 2003, Wankhade had identified Ashrat Ansari and Fahimida, two of the five accused in the case during an identification parade.
