RDX LANDING CASE - HC asks govt for ATR

Ahmedabad: Gujarat high court on Thursday directed the state government to submit an action taken report (ATR) in the Gosabara RDX landing case. The directive came following a PIL seeking action against two IPS officers for their alleged inaction in not arresting suspects in the case. 
   The high court has sought the ATR within three weeks. A senior counsel, Yatin Oza filed the PIL demanding action against senior IPS officers Satish Verma and Atul Karwal, who are joint commissioners of police in the city at present. He claimed that the two officers had not acted as per the law to nab the accused in the RDX landing case, which led to the 1993 Bombay blasts.
   This PIL was rejected in 2005, and an appeal was filed in the Supreme Court. The Apex court has asked the high court to hear the case again on merit.
