courtroom with the accused`s face covered on expiry of his
20-day police custody.

also trying to get details of the mobile calls made by Baig
and to know how he managed to procure fake documents to
operate bogus bank accounts to finance terror activities.
"An analysis of the hard disk recovered from the cyber

president Milind Pawar today resorted to `Gandhigiri`,
offering a rose to advocate A Rehman who has taken up Baig`s
case despite the PBA`s appeal not to represent the accused in
view of anti-national nature of the crime.
Rehman, a senior member of the Bar, maintained that while
he respected the appeal, the accused had the right to defend
himself under the law.
