The Division Bench, comprising Delhi High Court led by Justice Indrajit Mahanty and Justice A.M. Badar, heard the case filed by Lt. Col. Prasad Purohit who is one of the accused in the Malegaon Blast, 2008 that killed six and injured over 100 people. The Special National Investigation Agency court refused to share names of the prosecution witnesses with the accused, wherefore he moved to the High Court. It was also submitted that some names of witnesses had been changed or edited. The NIA contended that it would submit the complete list in a sealed envelope by next week, and till then it would not cross-examine any of the witnesses.
The Delhi High Court observed and referred the judgment of Kartar Singh vs the State of Punjab, and directed the National Investigation Agency to submit the complete list of witnesses before the Special NIA court as well as the High Court of Delhi.
