Mumbai: The Maharashtra ATS on Thursday filed a
chargesheet against three persons, suspected to be members of
Indian Mujahideen and Students Islamic Movement of India
(SIMI), in a fake currency case.
"The charge sheet was filed against Asrar Ahmed Abdul
Hamid Tailor, a computer trainer; his friend Haroon Rashid
Abdul Hamid Naik, and another person named Abdul," said
defence lawyer Sheriff Sheikh.
The charge sheet contains 4,000 pages, Sheikh said,
adding he was yet to get its copy.
The accused were booked under sections 489 B (using
counterfeit currency notes) and 489 C (possession of
counterfeit currency-notes) of IPC and relevant sections of
Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.
Tailor and the other two were arrested two months ago
from the city. They had also been questioned about their
suspected involvement in the July 13 Mumbai blasts.
