The Supreme Court on Tuesday sought a response from the Bihar government on the issue of consolidation of the ongoing trial of the Tablighi Jamaat members from Patna to Delhi. A bench comprising Justices A. M. Khanwilkar, Dinesh Maheshwari and Sanjiv Khanna asked the counsel for the Bihar government to file a response on this aspect and posted the matter for further hearing on August 30. Senior advocate Menaka Guruswamy, representing the petitioners, contended before the bench that the trial against a few foreigners was ongoing in Patna and urged the top court to consolidate it in Delhi on humanitarian grounds. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Centre, contended before the bench that consolidation of the trials would come with its own logistical issues. Mehta said in Delhi, the cases were being heard by 4-5 different Magistrates. (IANS)
