Indore: Madhya Pradesh High Court on Wednesday directed the Maharashtra ATS to give an affidavit with details regarding the disappearance of Dilip Patidar, a witness in Malegaon bomb blast case.

A division bench of the High Court in Indore, comprising Justice R S Garg and Justice S K Seth, issued the direction while hearing a habeas corpus petition filed by Ramswaroop Patidar, brother of Dilip, on November 24 last year.

According to Ramswaroop, Dilip was picked up by the Maharashtra Anti Terrorists Squad (ATS) from Indore on November 10, 2008, and since then his brother's whereabouts are not known.

"I have apprehended before the court that either Dilip was in unlawful custody of ATS or had been killed," the petitioner's counsel Bhuwan Deshmukh told reporters here.

He said the High Court has fixed September 17 as the next date of hearing.

Dilip was a tenant in the house of Ramji, an accused wanted in connection with Malegaon blasts case.
