Mumbai, Aug 26 (UNI) The City Civil Court today issued show cause notices against the superintendent of Kolhapur and Nagpur jails following their failure to produce Mumbai train blasts of 2006 accused and Arungabad Arms seizure accused before the Principal Session court as directed by the High Court.
Principal Session Judge A Nalwade was supposed to record the statement on a complaint by the accused alleging that they were beaten up by the staff of Arthur Road Jail while shifting them from the jail.

The accused, who were allegedly beaten up, are lodged at Kolhapur and Nagpur jails.
