New Delhi: A Delhi court Friday asked the CBI Director to explain how the confessional statement of Swami Aseemanand, an accused in the Ajmer dargah blast case, was leaked to the media.

"Issue a notice to the Director CBI to give report regarding the circumstances under which the copy of the confessional statement has been leaked to the media," Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjay Bansal said.

The court asked the probe agency to file its response on February 15.

The court's order came during the hearing of an application filed by RSS functionary Devendra Gupta seeking registration of an FIR against CBI and 'Tehelka' magazine under various penal provisions for the "deliberate" leakage of Aseemanand's confessional statement.

The confession was recorded in Delhi by a Metropolitan Magistrate on December 18 last year in an in-camera proceeding.
