The High Court issued notices to eight persons who were discharged earlier this year from the 2006 Malegaon blasts case, seeking response to a petition filed by the state against their discharge.

The state has moved the high court in appeal against the order of Sessions court. In April, the sessions court discharged these men of all terror charges after the NIA submitted that the blasts were the handiwork of a Hindu extremist group.

The state, however, urged the high court to set aside the order. The division bench of justices R V More and Shalini Phansalkar Joshi issued notices to the eight persons and sought their replies in four weeks.
