Israeli embassy car blast: Magistrate's order set aside

Additional Sessions Judge S.S. Rathi was hearing a revision petition moved by accused and journalist Syed Mohammad Kazmi challenging the magistrate's June 2 order.

"The impugned order was passed without giving the accused any opportunity of being heard," said ASJ Rathi.

He gave a week to the prosecution to move a fresh application to modify its plea for extension of the probe period.

"The public prosecutor would be at liberty to move a fresh report, seeking extension of investigation, within one week from today. If so moved, the notice of the same shall be given to the accused and the accused shall be afforded an opportunity of being heard followed by passing of a speaking order," the court said.

Kazmi in his petition challenged the magistrate's order that granted police an additional 90 days for investigation, without hearing his submission.
