The Vadodara Fast Track court on Tuesday adjourned the hearing in the case of bail application of the accused in the rocket launcher case. The court was to hear the bail application filed by Mushtaq Ali Sheikh,one of the five accused in the case.

The court will hear the matter tomorrow,” said Hanif Sheikh,the counsel for the accused. One of the five accused has already got bail.

The arrests were made on September 1,following recovery of a locally assembled rocket launcher from the Hathikhana area in the city.
