However, lawyers representing the two said they were not informed about the recording of their statements. Interestingly, both Bhatkal and Akhtar have moved an application claiming that they do not wish to give any confession on their alleged role in the blasts.

Sharif Shaikh, an advocate representing Akhtar, said, “We had no clue about this development. When one of my colleagues went to the ATS office to meet Akhtar today, he was sent back on the pretext that the accused had been taken out for interrogation.”
