2006 train blasts: Doctor deposes in special court
Mumbai: A doctor deposed in the Special
MCOCA court, which is conducting the trial in the July 2006
train blasts in the metropolis.
The doctor had conducted post-mortem on five bodies
and recovered splinters. The forensic analysis on the
splinters had revealed traces of nitrate on them.
During cross-examination, the defence argued that
although the doctor had dispatched the splinters for analysis
on July 12, 2006 (a day after the blasts), it was actually
sent to the lab by the police only 12 days later.
The doctor said the forensic lab was only at a
distance of 8-10 km from the hospital, where he had conducted
the post-mortem. In spite of that, the material was sent for
analysis only on July 24.
"When questioned about the delay, the doctor said he
was unaware about the reasons for this. We are trying to know
why there was a delay and who was handling the material during
this time," defence lawyer Wahab Khan said.
Seven RDX bombs kept in the first class coaches of
suburban trains had exploded on July 11, 2006 killing
188 people and injuring 817 others.
Anti-Terrorism Squad has arrested 13 persons for the
bombings, while 15 other accused are absconding.
