7 accused in 7/11 blasts

The process for setting up Tata Company's proposed small car manufacturing plant at Singur is progressing on schedule, West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee said today.
''People have spelt out their verdict on the Tata project. The government will ensure that the plant comes up at an earlier date,'' Mr Bhattacharjee told reporters while commenting on the Trinamool sponsored bandh here.

He said his government is fuctioning as per ''people's verdict''.
He said the Block office functioned normally in Singur. ''Cheques were issued and consent letters were also received during the day,'' the chief minister said.
Mr Bhattacharjee also made it clear that his government would ensure smooth operations in the IT sector on any eventuality.

''We are one government...and we have one policy,'' he said when asked of his government's stand on smooth operations in IT sector during the proposed Left supported industrial strike on December 14.

Commerce and Industry secretary Sabyasachi Sen said around 101 cheques were issued to farmers in Singur during the day. A Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA) court here today remanded seven persons arrested for their alleged involvement in the July 11 serial train blasts case in Mumbai to judicial custody till October 20.
The Anti-Terrorist squad (ATS) today produced Dr Tanvir Ansari, Muzamil Shaikh, Faisal Shaikh, Kamal Asari, Zamir Shaikh, Ethesham Siddiqui and Sohail Ahmed Shaikh before MCOCA Judge Mrudulla Bhatkar.

Since the ATS did not seek any further police custody, the MCOCA Judge remanded them to judicial custody. However, six other accused are still in police custody.
Meanwhile, when the Judge asked the suspects if they had anything to say, the undertrials complained of police torture. They alleged that the ATS had taken their confessions by resorting to third-degree methods, and that they would now like to retract the same. The court then took their complaints on record.

All the thirteen suspects arrested in conection with the July 11 serial train blasts were booked under the stringent Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).
188 people lost their lives and more than 800 were injured in these blasts.
