Ajmer: A local court on Friday admitted an
appeal of the National Investigation Agency seeking eight
days` time to produce the challans of the four accused in the
Ajmer Dargah bomb blast case including Swami Aseemanand.

Admitting the NIA`s appeal made through a petition,
Chief Judicial Magistrate Ratan Lal Moond asked the agency to
furnish the challans on April 30.
Earlier, the NIA produced all the four blast accused
including Swami Aseemanand, Harshad, Mukesh and Bharat Bhai
before the CJM amid tight security.

All of them are currently lodged in connection with
the case in Ajmer Central Jail.

One of the accused Harshad is completing 180 days in
judicial custody on 28th April. If challan is not produced
before 28th April in the court then he is legally entitled for
bail, Advocate Dargah Pratap Kumar Verma told the media.

One accused Chandrasekhar has already got bail from
Rajasthan High Court.

Later talking to reporters outside the court
Aseemanand said he is "innocent".
Harshad was arrested on November 1, 2010, Mukesh only
three days later on November 3, Bharat Bhai on February four,
2011 and Aseemanand January 22 this year.

The blast at the famous Ajmer shrine in 2007 had left
three persons dead and 28 injured.
