Kazmi opposes survey of diplomat's car

Journalist Syed Mohammed Ahmad Kazmi, arrested for his alleged role in bombing of the Israeli diplomat’s car, on Thursday opposed the release of the damaged vehicle or permission for assessment of the damage caused to it to claim insurance amount saying it would amount to tampering of a vital evidence.

Appearing before the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav, Kazmi’s counsel Mehmood Pracha said “the case is of international ramification and if permission is granted to the surveyor of an insurance company to inspect the car, it would amount to tampering of vital evidence.’

“The car is still in the custody of the Special Cell of Delhi Police and it is their responsibility to keep it senitised,” he said.

He also said “the case is also of national importance and the cost of the car would be less than national interest.”

Kazmi was opposing the application moved on behalf of Alon Yehoshua, the husband of Isreali diplomat Tal Yehoshua, who was injured in the February 13 attack. Yehoshua had moved the court seeking the release of the damaged car and permission for assessment of damage caused to it to claim insurance amount. Yehoshua's counsel contended the only purpose behind the application is to claim insurance.

Yehoshua had informed the court that he is the owner of the Toyota Innova car which was damaged in the terrorist attack and that the same has been in the custody of Special Cell for investigation since the day of the incident.
