Bombay High Court (HC) reserved on Monday order on a petition filed by 13 alleged SIMI members facing trial for the 7/11 bomb blasts of 2006, seeking call data records (CDRs) submitted to a trial court by the anti-terrorism squad.
It may decide the case next week.
Last week, Justice A M Thipsay had sought a confidential report from the special MCOCA court and asked then chief investigating officer to file an affidavit listing volumes of the CDRs.
HC had earlier said the government may be hiding the CDRs but accepted the state affidavit Monday.
Justice Thipsay told the prosecution even if it were not relying on the CDRs, it should have given copies to the defence. Advocate general D J Khambata said the accused were free to get the records from telecom companies and the government had no objection if service providers could retrieve the records for the accused.
