New Delhi: Journalist Syed Mohammed Ahmad Kazmi, arrested for his alleged role in the February 13 bomb attack at Israeli diplomat Tal Yehoshua's car, resulting in critical injuries to her, on Friday moved a Delhi court for bail.

Kazmi's bail plea, filed in the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav, is to come up for hearing tomorrow.

Court sources said Kazmi has sought bail on the ground that the police had told the court earlier, at the time he was sent to the judicial custody, that the probe vis-a-vis him has been completed.

He has said due to completion of the probe against him, he had been sent to judicial custody on March 24 mid-way his tenure for the police custody till March 27.

Kazmi had earlier alleged that police was harassing him in custody to pressurise him to "confess a crime he never committed" and that "foreign agencies like Mossad were also interrogating him."

The court had then asked the Special Cell not to permit other investigating agencies to interrogate him but had imposed no bar from sharing information with other agencies.

Kazmi, who claims to have been writing for an Iranian publication, was picked up by the Special Cell of Delhi Police after the probe showed he had been in touch with a suspect who is believed to have stuck the magnetic bomb on Israeli diplomat Tal Yehoshua's car on February 13.

Yehoshua and an Indian driver of the Embassy vehicle were among the four people injured in the blast.
