Mumbai, Feb 26: Police have sought the special court's approval to dispose off over 24 kgs of RDX which were seized from the targeted spots of the Mumbai terror attacks.
"We have made an application seeking to dispose of the RDX but the court is yet to pass an order on our plea," Special Public Prosecutor Ujjwal Nikam said in a news agency report.
The seized explosive which was presented before the court as an evidence was recovered from the three unexploded IEDs, which were fixed outside Taj Mahal Hotel, near Gokul Restaurant and an unclaimed baggage at Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST).
The prosecution argued that explosive weighing 8 to 10 kgs were planted by the two slain terrorists, Abdul Rehman Bada and Javed alias Abu Ali, outside the main porch of Taj Hotel in South Mumbai.
The explosive was diffused by the Bomb Detection and Disposal Squad (BDDS) before it could explode.
Abu Shoib and Abu Umer, who were killed in the gun battle at Hotel Taj, also planted 8 to 10 kgs RDX-laden IED which was diffused on the kerb near Gokul Restaurant in the same area.
Both the terrorists attacked people at Leopold Cafe.
