New Delhi, July 16 (IANS) A Delhi court Monday reserved its order on a plea of journalist Syed Mohammad Kazmi, arrested for his alleged role in the Feb 13 Israeli embassy car blast, challenging a magistrate's decision to extend time for the probe.
Kazmi was arrested March 6 for his alleged involvement in the bombing. Four people were injured when an Israeli embassy car was struck by a bomb near the Prime Minister's House in central Delhi.
In a revision petition filed before Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) S.S. Rathi, Kazmi challenged a magisterial court's order that granted Delhi Police an additional 90 days for investigation. Police opposed Kazmi's petition.
ASJ Rathi reserved the order on Kazmi's revision petition for Tuesday.
The Delhi High Court July 2 suspended the hearing in the case and the June 8 order of the ASJ, who had questioned the magistrate's power to extend the judicial or police custody of an accused under the anti-terror law.
The high court July 13 lifted the curbs and allowed hearing on the revision petition.
Tal Yehoshua Koren, 42, wife of Israeli defence attache Colonel Yossi Refaelov, suffered multiple injuries in the blast after a motorcycle rider attached a magnetic explosive device to her car and sped away.
