Court seeks police response to Tunda's bail plea

New Delhi, Dec 20 : A court Friday asked the city police to file its reply on bail plea of Lashkar-e-Taiba bomb expert Abdul Karim Tunda, accused in the 1997 Delhi Sadar Bazar blasts case.

Tunda moved the plea Tuesday, saying that the other two co-accused in the case have been discharged or acquitted.

Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Amit Bansal has posted the matter for further hearing Jan 3, 2014.

Police have charge sheeted Tunda under Sections 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapon), 307 (attempt to murder) and 120-B (criminal conspiracy) of the Indian Penal Code.

Tunda was part of the conspiracy which led to two bomb blasts at Sadar Bazar and Qutab Road Oct 1, 1997, in which many people were injured, they said, adding the two other accused in the case earlier disclosed that the blasts were carried out at Tunda's behest.

One of the co-accused Mohammad Shakeel alias Hamza was acquitted in April 1999 while the second, Mohammad Amir, was discharged in the case in April 2001.

Tunda argued said the other two accused were already released by court and the question of conspiracy with them does not arise, and their disclosure statements not admissible as evidence.
