The court however directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to file the certified copy of the Swami Aseemanand’s confessional statement before it.
Earlier Tis Hazari court in New Delhi rejected an application for a certified copy of Swami Aseemanand’s confession by accused in the 2006 Malegaon blasts.
Aseemanand is also accused in the Hyderabad Mecca Majid bomb blast, Smjhouta balst and Ajmer blasts. MCOCA court had asked the blasts suspects to furnish a copy of the confession statement, while hearing their bail plea on January 28.
The blast took place near Hamidia mosque in the Bada Kabristan area in Malegaon on September 8, 2006, around 1315 hrs after the Shab-e-Barat prayers.
In December 2006, the case was handed over to the Central Bureau of Investigation. The special court had directed the investigation agency to file its reply to the bail plea by today.
The nine accused are Salman Farsi, Shabir Ahmed, Noorulhuda Doha, Rais Ahmed, Mohammed Ali, Asif Khan, Javed Sheikh, Farooque Ansari and Abrar Ahmed.
