Mumbai: A panch witness in the 2006 serial
train blasts case, in the presence of whom the Anti-Terrorism
Squad had seized three chemical substances from the locker of
prime accused Tanvir Ansari, deposed before a special court
today.

The witness told Special MCOCA Judge Y D Shinde that
ATS had seized three chemicals -- Hydrochloride Peroxide,
Sulphuric Acid and Agar -- from Ansari`s locker at the Saboo
Siddiqui hospital, where the accused was a doctor.

During cross examination by defence lawyer Wahab Khan,
the witness agreed that the seized articles were not sealed at
the spot.

The prosecution has till now examined 16 witnesses in
the case, against 13 persons alleged to be Lashkar-e-Taiba
operatives.

On July 11, 2006, RDX laden bombs ripped the first
class compartments of seven local trains in the Western
railways within a span of ten minutes, killing 187 persons and
injuring 800 others.

The Supreme Court had in February 2008, stayed the
trial after one of the accused Kamal Ansari moved the court
challenging the Constitutional validity of a section
pertaining to insurgency in Maharashtra Control of Organised
Crime Act (MCOCA).

The SC had on April 25 this year dismissed the
petition and vacated the stay on the trial.
