Mumbai: Ghatkopar blast case accused discharged for lack of evidence
The prosecution filed a report on Monday under CrPC section 164, stating the police didn't find sufficient evidence against him
Three months after his arrest, a special court has discharged Irfan Qureshi, an accused in the 2002 Ghatkopar blast, for lack of evidence. The prosecution filed a report on Monday under CrPC section 164, stating the police didn't find sufficient evidence against him.
A day earlier, Qureshi's lawyer had filed a 'default bail' plea before special judge S M Bhosle of the Prevention of Terrorist Act (POTA) court on the ground that the police failed to file a charge sheet within the mandatory 90 days of arrest. "As per the prosecution report and investigating officer, no role of Qureshi was revealed... The accused is hereby discharged," the court order said.
