    An Indian court says it won't rule before July 1 on the case of a New York City police officer arrested in New Delhi on a weapons charge.

    The NYPD says Manny Encarnacion was arrested in March after Indian authorities discovered three bullets he had accidentally packed in his luggage. He is out on bail but has been barred from leaving India until the case is resolved.

    On Thursday, the police officer's attorney, Samarjeet Pattnaik, said the court heard a petition to throw out the arrest but gave no ruling.

    The arrest follows a furor between the United States and India over the arrest of an Indian diplomat in New York City. But Indian authorities say the arrest had nothing to do with the diplomatic spat.
