New Delhi: A suspected Indian Mujahideen
terrorist has been handed over to the Rajasthan police for helping them to probe his alleged role in the serial blasts in Jaipur in 2008.

involvement in the serial blasts here, was taken to Jaipur
from Tihar jail here on a production warrant.

He was required for test identification parade in the case
registered with Manak Chowk police station following a series
of nine synchronised blasts on May 13, 2008.

A report by the Rajasthan police with regard to Salman was
submitted to the Delhi court which is holding the criminal
proceedings against 14 suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists
in the cases registered in connection with the serial blasts
in the national capital.

Salman, along with another suspect Shahzad, has also been
interrogated by the Bangalore police for their alleged role in
M Chinnaswamy Stadium blasts in the IT capital in April this year.
Meanwhile, the proceedings relating to holding arguments
on framing of charges against the accused could not resume

Santosh Snehi Mann has gone to participate in training
programmes.

Delhi police as well as the defence counsel have wrapped
up their arguments on the charges being pressed against the 14
suspected IM men.
The matter has been fixed for December seven for the Delhi
police to put forth rebuttal of the arguments advanced by the
defence counsel.

All the accused have been charged under Indian Penal
Code, Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and Explosive
Substances Act.

The serial blasts had claimed 26 lives and left 135
injured in the capital.
