Indore: Madhya Pradesh High Court today directed the Mumbai ATS to submit entries made by it in the concerned register while taking away witness Dilip Patidar in connection with the Malegaon blast.

Patidar was taken away by Mumbai ATS in November 2008 after which he never returned to his house prompting his brother Ramswaroop Patidar to file an habeas corpus petition in the high court.

The directions in this regard were given by the division bench of Justice N K Modi and Justice I S Shrivastava after going through the report of the Indore Police regarding Patidar who has gone missing, Advocate Bhuvan Deshmukh, representing Patidar in the court, told reporters.

The bench had earlier directed the Indore Police to find out Patidar following which it submitted a report in the high court that despite its efforts, it failed to locate him.

Besides directing ATS to file a report of the entry into the concerned register (Roznamcha), the court also directed the Indore Police to continue searching for Patidar, he said.

ATS officials had earlier informed the court that Patidar went with them on his own to record his statement on the issue of Malegaon blast and at that time he was also ready to give a statement in the concerned court in Maharashtra.

After this the ATS officials asked him to come back with his identity proof following which he left the ATS office on November 18, 2008, and never returned.
