The National Investigation Agency (NIA) presented Rateswar before a magistrate at a Nampally criminal court. He was later shifted to Chanchalguda Central Jail.

The NIA has brought Rateswar on transit warrant from Rajasthan, where he was lodged in jail in the Ajmer Dargah blast case. He is also an accused in Samjhauta Express blast and Malegaon blast cases.

Nine people were killed and 58 were injured in the bomb blast at the historic Mecca Masjid here on May 18, 2007.

He is the seventh accused in the case and it was at a meeting at his house that the blast conspiracy was hatched.

The NIA in May last year had filed the second charge sheet in the case, naming Swami Aseemanand as the prime accused in the case.

The CBI had filed the first charge sheet in 2010 against Devender Gupta and Lokesh Sharma, who are also accused in Ajmer and Malegaon blast cases.
