While Akhtar has been represented by the Muslim legal organisation Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind , Bhatkal was provided state legal aide after he informed the court that he had no lawyer.
The court has allowed the lawyers to meet the duo twice a week with prior intimation to the investigating officers.
The court also accepted the prosecution’s application to handcuff the accused owing to the “high chances” of them fleeing while being ferried to the court from Arthur road jail.
