New Delhi: A Delhi court is likely to pronounce tomorrow its judgement in a case relating to the murder of former Railway Minister L N Mishra at a function in Bihar nearly 40 years ago.

District judge Vinod Goel, who had reserved the verdict on September 12, had fixed the case for November 10 after hearing the final arguments of the counsel for CBI and the four accused. The final arguments had begun in September, 2012.

The case relates to the bomb blast at the function attended by Mishra at Samastipur Railway Station on January 2, 1975. He succumbed to his injuries the next day.

Over 200 witnesses, including 161 prosecution witnesses and more than 40 defence witnesses, were examined in the case.

Advocate Ranjan Dwivedi, who was 24-year-old at that time, was named as an accused along with four Ananda Marga group members, one of whom has died.
