Rejecting the plea, the court said it is not prudent to grant relief to the duo considering the seriousness of the crime they have been accused of committing and also given the complexities of the case. Five people are on trial for the murder of Masood who was shot dead outside her residence in Bhopal on August 16, 2011.
Besides Saquib and Tabish, the other accused are interior designer Zahida Parvez, her associate Saba Farooqi and Irfan, an alleged contract killer hailing from Kanpur. All the accused are in judicial custody since their arrest.
