A special National Investigation Agency (NIA) court here on Monday issued a bailable warrant against an officer of the Anti-Terrorism Squad (ATS) for not appearing before it in connection with the 2008 Malegaon blast case.


The officer concerned had arrested a few accused in the case and recorded some statements. He is also a witness in the case.



According to a lawyer, a bailable warrant of Rs 5,000 was issued against the officer, as he had skipped multiple summons.
