Pretoria: The second day of paralympian Oscar Pistorius's bail hearing ended without a court ruling on his application.

Magistrate Desmond Nair ruled on Wednesday that Pistorius would remain in custody again at the Brooklyn police station holding cells until Thursday. That will be Pistorius' seventh night in police cells since he was arrested on February 14, reports Xinhua.

During Wednesday's hearing, investigating officer Hilton Botha testified that Pistorius knew he was firing at his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp the night she was killed in his house.
