Additional Sessions Judge Daya Prakash allowed the police plea, while dismissing the bail plea of Bhatkal and Akhtar, who are presently in Mumbai under the custody of the Maharashtra ATS.
The special cell, in its plea seeking extension of time to conclude its probe in a bomb blast case in Karol Bagh in which 21 people had died, said it has also received inputs about one of the wanted accused. “The operation to apprehend accused Ariz Khan alias Junaid is under way and teams are already in the field to apprehend him. One more suspect involved in this case has been detected in a west Asian country and necessary action is being carried out for his extradition/deportation,” police said.
Thirteen suspected IM members are facing trial for the September 2008 Delhi serial blasts, which claimed 26 lives.
Bhatkal and Akhtar were arrested by the National Investigation Agency on the Indo-Nepal border on August 28 last year.
