Jaunpur, Aug 28 (UNI) The three terrorists accused in the Patna-New Delhi Shramjivi Express bomb blast case today appeared before a local court amid tight security, where the judge ordered to produce the original documents regarding the case in the next hearing on September 15.

Obaid-ur-Rehman, Hilal-ud-din and Nafikul were produced before Additional District and Sessions Judge (III) Rajendra Chandra amid tight security.
The judge has ordered to produce documents related to the case from the Tees Hazari court in New Delhi.
The next hearing has been fixed for September 15 and judicial custody of the trio has been further extended.
There are 48 witnesses in the case, of which over 35 have recorded their statement.
Chargesheet against the accused had already been filed under CrPC sections 148, 307, 302 and 120 B, Explosive Substance Act section 3/4, Railway Act section 150, 151 and Foreigners Act section 14.
