Spreading propaganda about terror acts is more lethal than the use of bullets or detonation of IEDs, the Delhi High Court on Wednesday said while rejecting the bail pleas of two Indian Mujahideen members accused in the 2008 Delhi serial blasts case. Justice Ashutosh Kumar dismissed the pleas of Asif Bashiruddin Shaikh and Akbar Ismail Choudhary, both said to be members of the media cell of the banned terror group, holding that he was not inclined to grant the relief while the trial court was yet to complete examination of all the 610 witnesses. The court said a detailed order giving reasons for rejection of the bail would be passed later.
