The police told Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav that the release of the vehicle or its survey for assessment of the damage caused to it to claim insurance cannot be allowed.
The police made the submissions, opposing the application by Alon Yehoshua, the husband of Israeli diplomat Tal Yehoshua, who had been injured in the February 13 attack.
Yehoshua had moved the court seeking the release of the damaged car and permission for assessment of damage caused to it to claim insurance amount. He had also sought a copy of FIR, saying it was a must for getting the vehicle inspected by an authorised Toyota workshop for preparing the repairing estimates.
The police, however, maintained that it cannot give the copy of the FIR considering the sensitivity of the matter.
Earlier, Journalist Syed Mohammed Ahmad Kazmi, arrested for his alleged role in the incident, had opposed the release of the damaged vehicle or permission for its survey saying it would amount to "tampering of a vital evidence."
New Delhi: The Delhi Police on Tuesday opposed a plea for allowing inspection by the insurer of the Israeli diplomat's car, subjected to the February 13 bombing, saying the same cannot be allowed as the case has international ramifications.
