A Cuttack Sadar Subdivisional Magistrate has approved an appeal of Commissionerate Police to include him in the bombing and attempt to murder case.
The Court has written to the Kujang Court regarding including him as an accused. Sources at Commissionerate Police said they will now appeal to take Mahima in remand.
