A special Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court granted permission on Tuesday to one of the arrested accused in the July 11 serial train blast case, to attend the last rites of his mother.

Jamir Rehman had sought permission from special MCOCA judge YD Shinde to attend the funeral of his 60-year-old mother, who died on Tuesday morning in Worli.

The court on humanitarian grounds accepted the application and permitted him to attend the funeral, which was to be held on Tuesday evening.

The court is presently conducting a trial against 21 people, allegedly members of the banned terror outfit Students Islamic Movement of India and terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), for carrying out seven blasts in suburban local trains on July 11 2006, that killed 183 persons and injured several others.
