Court issues notice to CBI Director on leak of Aseemanand confession

A court here on Friday issued notice to the Director of the Central Bureau of Investigation, asking him to explain how the confessional statement of Swami Aseemanand, made to a Delhi magistrate on December 18 last, was leaked to Tehelka magazine.
Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Sanjay Bansal deferred passing an order on an application filed by RSS functionary Devender Gupta demanding registration of an FIR against those who leaked the confessional statement, and gave the CBI chief time till February 15 to file a report.
Gupta, an accused in the Ajmer dargah and Mecca Masjid blasts cases and currently lodged in the Ajmer jail, moved the Tis Hazari court on the ground that the leak would prejudice his right to a fair trial and that it was an “interference in the administration of justice.”
Swami Aseemanand has admitted to planning terror attacks on the Ajmer Sharif, the Mecca Masjid and the Samjhauta Express and in Malegaon.
