Mumbai: Bombay High court April 06 refused to order a fresh probe in the 2006 Malegaon blast case by a Special Investigation Team on a plea by three accused in the case.
A Division bench comprising Justices D B Bhosale and A R Joshi, dismissing the plea, said the petitioners can approach the trial court.
The court passed an order in response to a petition filed by Noorulhudha Samsudhoha, Shabbir Ahmed Masiullah and Mohammad Jahid.
In the petition, the trio alleged that an affidavit filed by accused turned approver Abrar Ahmed, indicated that the petitioners had been implicated. They also alleged that Abrar's affidavit showed that there was a link between Malegaon blasts of 2006, and the blast in the same town in 2008. In the 2008 case, members of Abhinav Bharat, a Hindu outfit, are the accused.
However, advocate Amin Solkar, the petitioners' lawyer, alleged that same group could be involved in 2006 blasts too, and therefore SIT should probe both the cases.
Trial in 2006 case has been stayed by the Supreme Court, as accused have challenged constitutional validity of Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act. Over 30 persons died in four blasts in Malegaon on September 8, 2006.
