New Delhi, July 13 (IANS) Journalist Syed Mohammad Kazmi, arrested for his alleged role in Feb 13 Israeli embassy car blast here, moved his bail application in a Delhi court Friday.
Kazmi moved his bail application before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav. The court has listed the matter for further hearing July 17.
Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court Friday lifted the stay on the hearing of Kazmi's revision plea, allowing his application seeking to resume the hearing on his criminal revision petition in the court of Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) S.S. Rathi.
In his application, Kazmi's counsel Mehmood Pracha said: "The (high court's) order dated July 2 may be modified to the extent that the proceedings in the criminal revision before Judge Rathi be allowed to continue on issues apart from the competence of the CMM (chief metropolitan magistrate) to grant/extend the custody in the said matter."
The high court July 2 suspended the hearing 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.
Kazmi, in his revision petition before the ASJ, had challenged the magistrate court order that granted to police an additional 90 days for investigation.
He was arrested March 6 for his alleged involvement in the embassy car bombing. Four people were injured when an Israeli embassy car was bombed near the Prime Minister's House in central Delhi.
