New Delhi: Bangalore police today moved a Delhi court for obtaining the custody of two suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists facing charges relating to the serial blasts here in 2008.

In an application filed before the court of Additional Sessions Judge Santosh Snehi Mann, the Bangalore police submitted that they required custody of Salman and Shahzad in a case registered with Cubbon Park police station relating to blasts at M Chinnaswamy Stadium in April 2008.

The Bangalore police officials came before the court with a request from a court there to seek custody of the two accused here.

ASJ Mann, who put the application for tomorrow for hearing, however, told them they should put their plea before the prison authorities.

"Under the provisions of the Criminal Procedure Code, a court can issue a direction to the jail authorities for production of an accused before it. There is no such provision for a court to issue a request to another court for the purpose," the court said.

It asked the Delhi police and counsel for Salman and Shahzad to file their replies on the plea of the Bangalore police.

Meanwhile, Public Prosecutor Rajeev Mohan resumed advancing arguments on behalf of Delhi police relating to the charges to be framed against 14 suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists in connection with the blasts carried out here on September 13, 2008.

During his over an hour long arguments, the prosecutor tried to establish a link between banned outfit Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and Indian Mujahideen (IM) by reading out a confessional statement of Jamaluddin Nasir, an accused in 2002 American Centre attack case recorded by a judicial magistrate in Kolkata.
