A local court on Wednesday issued a production warrant to Rajasthan Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) to arrest Swami Asimanand for interrogation in the Ajmer dargah bomb blast case.

Additional Superintendent of Police (ATS) Satyendra Singh Ranavat filed an application in the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court for a production warrant.

Ranavat told the court that Swami Asimanand is also wanted in the Ajmer blast case.

Three persons were killed in the 2007 Ajmer blast.

The ATS will produce the 59-year-old swami in the court on January 4.

Swami Asimanand alias Naba Kumar Sarkar, who is presently lodged in Hyderabad jail, was arrested by the CBI on November 19 from Haridwar in connection with the blast at the historic Mecca Masjid.
