Kochi: The National Investigation Agency Monday filed the chargesheet in the 2006 Kozhikode twin blast case, listing suspected LeT militant T Nazeer as the first accused.

The chargesheet was filed before CBI Special Court Judge S Vijaykumar.

Nazeer is also a prime accused in the burning of a Tamil Nadu state owned bus at Kalamassery near here in 2005 and the Bangalore serial blasts case of 2008.

The chargesheet does not include the name of Abdul Jaleel, fifth accused, since there was no evidence against him, NIA sources said.

The sixth accused, Fayaz, had been killed in an encounter with security forces in Kashmir.There are seven accused in the case.

The accused have been chargesheeted under various IPC sections including sect 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 153 (A)(promoting enmity between different groups) and Sect 16 (1), Sect 18, 23 of Unlawful Assembly Prevention Act, 1967 and sect 3,4,5 of Explosive Substances Act.

Two policemen and a porter were injured in the bomb blasts which occurred on March 3, 2006. The first bomb exploded in a garbage dump at the KSRTC bus station and another shortly later at a drain near a bus stand.

NIA is probing various terror related cases in Kerala.
