HYDERABAD: The High Court on Tuesday cancelled the bail granted by the Nampally criminal court to Mohd Asgar Ali, an accused in the case of murder of former Gujarat home minister Haren Pandya and acquitted by the Gujarat High Court in August last year and subsequently arrested in another case in Hyderabad.

Justice KC Bhanu, while cancelling the bail order given by the seventh additional metropolitan sessions judge, Nampally, directed the lower court to complete the trial within two months.

The Hyderabad city police arrested Asgar Ali on October 23 last year in connection with a case of helping Mirza Fayaz Baig, the principal accused in a murder case, to escape from police custody from the Nampally court premises in 1998. Later, Mirza Fayaz Baig was killed in an encounter with security forces in Jammu & Kashmir. The sessions judge granted bail to Asgar Ali on January 6 this year. The city police challenged the order in the High Court. The police brought to the court's notice that several criminal cases were pending against Asgar Ali which included a bomb blast case at Kakatiya Restaurant at Moghalpura in the old city in 1991 and two cases in Nalgonda district.
