UP blasts: Court rejects plea to summon J&K cop

A special court, hearing the 2007 Faizabad and Lucknow blasts cases, has rejected a plea of UP Police seeking to summon a Sub Inspector of Kashmir police to prove that the accused in the case had a link with a slain HuJI operative.

Additional District Judge Mohammad Hussain turned down the plea of Investigating Officer (IO) Rakesh Kumar Srivastava Saturday. The IO had sought summoning of Kuldip, an SI in Kashmir Police, who was in-charge of 'malkana' where cell phone and other belongings of slain HuJI operative Bashir were kept. Bashir was killed in 2008 in Kashmir Valley.
