Lucknow: Even as a Special court acquitted
Fahim Ansari and Sabahuddin Ahmed, both Indians, in the Mumbai
attack case, the Uttar Pradesh Police today said they would be
brought to the state to stand trial in connection with a
terror strike on a CRPF camp in 2007.
"We have scientific and concrete evidence against
Sabahuddin and Fahim Ansari in connection with the attack on
a CRPF camp in Rampur on December 31, 2007," Additional
Director General of Police (Law and Order) Brij Lal told
He said Sabahuddin was the mastermind of the attack on
the CRPF camp in which eight jawans were killed.
"A chargesheet has been filed against the two and the
trial is pending in the court. We will bring them to UP for
trial," the ADGP said.
Brij Lal said acquittal by the court would have no
effect on the case pending against them in UP.
Ansari and Sabahuddin were arrested by the UP Police
in February 2008.
They were taken to Mumbai in December 2008 on transit
remand by the Maharashtra Police.
Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving Pakistani gunman in
the Mumbai carnage in which 166 people were killed, was held
guilty of mass murder and waging war against India by the
Special court in Mumbai.
The court, however, acquitted the two Indians while
wrapping the year-long trial.
