"The role of the military council complements the uprising and the blessed revolution", said Burhan, adding that the TMC was committed to handing power over to the people.

The protesters fear the military - which is still dominated by al-Bashir appointees - will cling to power or appoint another general in his place.

Hassan Bashir, a professor of political science at the University of Neelain, said the measures against Mr Bashir were meant to be a message to other figures associated with his rule that they were not above the law.

Al-Asam, a 28-year-old doctor, said in an interview late Saturday that the military council is becoming more powerful every day and that "this is unsafe to the revolution".

He said the military is waiting for the various political factions behind the protests to submit the names of the proposed members of a transitional government, something the organizers had said they would do on Sunday. It was not immediately clear whether the announcement had been cancelled or delayed. He was held in the Koper prison in Khartoum, where al-Bashir and other top officials now reside.

Sudan's military, however, says it will not extradite him and will try him in the country instead.

"We expect a breakthrough in this issue", he said.

Gogoi said, "All I would say is this particular employee was in the CJI's residential office from August 27 till October 22". The CJI who was presiding over the bench, however, did not pass any gag order against the media on reporting this.

"We clarified our main demand, which is the transfer of power to civilian authorities", Siddiq Yousef, a senior member of the Alliance for Freedom and Change, the umbrella group leading the protest movement, told state television after Saturday's talks ended.

Are Sudan's democratic forces ready for the battle ahead?

The Sudanese Professionals Association, one of the key groups behind ongoing protests in the country, said on Sunday that it had suspended dialogue with Sudan's Transitional Military Council and would continue its action's in the capital. But the army said it will hold on to control over the interior and defence ministries.

The source said military intelligence officers who searched Bashir's home found suitcases loaded with more than $351,000 and six million euros, as well as five million Sudanese pounds.

They accused it of being composed of "remnants" of Mr Bashir's regime.

The aid from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates is the first major publicly announced assistance to Sudan from Gulf states in several years.

The two Gulf Arab countries will deposit $500 million with the Sudanese central bank and send the rest in the form of food, medicine and petroleum products, their state news agencies said in parallel statements.
