New Delhi: A Delhi court on Wednesday allowed Bangalore police's plea seeking custody of two suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists for their alleged involvement in the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium blast in April this year.
Additional Sessions Judge Santosh Snehi Mann directed the Tihar jail authorities here to grant the custody of Salman and Shahzad to the Bangalore police. The two are already facing charges of involvement in cases relating to the September 13, 2008 Delhi serial blasts.
The court took into consideration the plea of an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Bangalore City, which submitted that the case is pending investigation and important evidence may get lost or destroyed due to delay as custodial interrogation of both the accused is essential.
The Judge also directed the Bangalore Police to produce the accused in the court here on November 1.
Two low-intensity explosions near the Chinnaswamy cricket stadium less than an hour before an IPL match on April 17 had left 15 persons, including five security men, injured.
The court is at present hearing arguments on charges to be framed against 14 suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists, including Salman and Shahzad, for allegedly carrying out serial blasts in the national capital that had claimed 26 lives. — PTI
