A bench headed up Justice Arijit Pasayat took exception to the fact that the public prosecutor appointed by the government had opposed the issuance of non-bailable arrest warrants against the accused in the case, which was shifted from Gujarat to Mumbai on the direction of the apex court.

"You are showing true colours right from the day one," the bench said. "What sort of public prosecutor is he who opposes arrest warrants against accused who do not appear before the court."

The bench asked the director general of the Gujarat police to file within a week steps taken to produce the accused before the trial court.

It also asked the government to consider the suggestions by the victims regarding appointment of public prosecutor.

The court adjourned the matter till August 16.
