Masood case: court reserves order on bail pleas of two accused
Indore: The special CBI court on Wednesday reserved its order on the bail applications of two of the accused in the Shehla Masood murder case -- alleged shooters Saquib Ali `Danger` and Tabish Khan -- till April 12.
Judge Anupam Srivastava reserved the order after hearing the arguments by defence lawyer Pradeep Gupta and CBI`s senior prosecutor Atul Kumar.
The accused had filed the pleas in December. Advocate Gupta had argued that the trial was underway for over a year and would go on for long, so the accused be given bail. But prosecution argued that final arguments were yet to take place and the bail applications could be considered afterwards.
Five people are on trial for the murder of Shehla Masood, an RTI activist, in Bhopal`s Koh-E-Fiza locality on August 16, 2011: Zahida Parvez, Saba, Saquib Ali Danger, Irfan, and Tabish.
Zahida Pervez, an interior designer, is accused of conspiring to kill Masood.
