Indore: The Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court on Wednesday directed CBI to complete the probe within two months, into the missing of Dilip Patidar – a witness in the 2008 Malegaon blast.

The division bench of the High Court comprising Justices K K Lahoti and S Kemkar, was hearing the petition by Ramswaroop, Dilip`s brother, demanding a speedy inquiry.

"The CBI sought six months` time to complete the probe but the bench did not agree to it and directed the agency to do the job in two months," Patidars` counsel Bhuwan Deshmukh told reporters.
On October 1 last year, the High Court had ordered the CBI probe into the case but had not fixed time limit. Patidar was the tenant of Ramchandra Kalsangra alias Ramji - wanted in connection with Samjhauta Express blast and other terror acts.
Patidar`s family claims that Dilip was picked up by the Maharashtra ATS from Indore in November 2008 for interrogation in Malegaon blast case, after which he didn`t return home.
