Petitioner P Barde, a Solapur-based activist, has sought Rane's questioning.
Rane had claimed at a press conference on December 6, 2008 that he knew the politicians who helped the terrorists. However, he never revealed the names.
A division bench led by Justice Bilal Nazki on Thursday asked the government if they have recorded any statement in this regard -- Rane's or others. The government has been given two weeks to file a reply.
