Delhi Police file chargesheet against 11 Indian Mujahideen suspects

Delhi Police on Tuesday filed a chargesheet against 11 suspected operatives of Indian Mujahideen who were allegedly involved in trying to revive the banned outfit.

Chief metropolitan magistrate Vinod Yadav took cognisance of the chargesheet against the 11 accused and listed the matter for June 6 and told police to present six of the suspects on that day.

The Delhi Police special cell filed the chargesheet saying the accused were part of a module of the banned outfit trying to revive itself after the reverses suffered due to the 2008 Batala House shoot-out in south Delhi.

“Their aim was to carry out blasts and shoot-outs in India to avenge the ‘atrocities’ being meted out to the Muslim community and spread the message of Jihad,” said the chargesheet.

The accused also aspired for implementing Islamic laws in India and to weaken the Indian economy by circulation of fake currency and discouraging foreign investment through violence, police said.

The court asked police to present before it Mohd Kafil, Mohd Quateel Siddiqui, Gauhar Aziz, Gayur Ahmed, Mohd Aftab Alam and Tariq Anjum Ahsan.

The other five suspects are Mohd Irshad Khan, Asadullah Rehman, Mohd Adil, Bashir Hasan and Abdul Rehman.

There are 21 other accused against whom the special cell has obtained non-bailable warrants.
