A suspected terrorist of Indian Mujahideen had used Delhi metro rail to travel after planting the bomb at a place here during the serial blasts on September 13, 2008, Delhi police on Wednesday told a court in New Delhi.
"Mohd Shakeel had used the metro rail from Jhandewalan in New Delhi after planting the bomb at Karol Bagh before triggering the serial blasts," public prosecutor Rajeev Mohan told Additional Sessions Judge Santosh Snehi Mann.
The court, meanwhile, directed the police to provide a copy of the compact disc containing the CCTV footage of Shakeel captured during his movement on the metro train following the incident.
The court's order came on an application filed by Shakeel's counsel Mayur Suresh.
The prosecutor resumed his arguments on charges to be framed against 14 suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists who were allegedly involved in the serial blasts.
Mohan related the sequence of events following the blasts which led the Delhi police's Special Cell sleuths to reach the Batla House where an encounter had taken place on September 19, 2008, killing an Inspector and two suspected terrorists.
He also told the court about the telephonic surveillance records relating to the mobiles of the accused including that of Atif Ameen who was killed in the encounter.
The prosecutor also told the court how the accused travelled to Karnataka under the assumed names to procure explosives and how the accused in other blasts like Ahmedabad, Jaipur and Delhi were in touch with each other before and after the explosions.
The arguments of the prosecutor remained inconclusive and are likely to continue on Thursday.
