The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notice to city police on a bail plea of a suspected terrorist allegedly involved in the Delhi serial blasts who wants to appear for an MBA exam next month.
Saquib Nisar, who has been in custody since he was arrested on September 20, 2008, pleaded that he should be granted bail to appear in MBA third semester examination which is to begin from February 7 in Delhi.
"The gravity of the allegations cannot and should not bar the right of any accused to pursue his studies," Saquib's counsel, Vikas Padora pleaded before the Court.
Justice Reva Khetrapal asked the Delhi police to verify whether Saquib is a second year management student of Sikkim Manipal University and asked it to file a response by February 4 when the matter will be taken up for further hearing.
The police have already filed chargesheet against Saquib Nissar and other accused - Mohd Saif, Zeeshan Ahmed, Zia-ur Rehman and Mohd Shakeel in the September 13 serial blasts. They have been accused of waging war against the nation under the Indian Penal Code.
According to the police, all the accused who have been named in the chargesheet were also involved in the serial blasts in Jaipur and Ahmedabad.
