New Delhi: Delhi police today tried to
establish a link between suspected Indian Mujahideen
terrorists allegedly involved in serial blasts here in 2008
and Pakistan based Lashkar-e-Toiba before a court by reading
out contents of emails exchanged between them.
"Aftab Ansari, 2002 Kolkata`s Amercian Centre attack case
convict, was in touch with several associates including Arshad
and Asif Raza Khan, brother of Indian Mujahideen founder Amir
Raza Khan," Public Prosecutor Rajeev Mohan told Additional
Sessions Judge Santosh Snehi Mann.
Ansari, facing the gallows, used to converse with them
through emails in which he had even described codes of
different things, he claimed.
The prosecutor also read out contents of a few emails to
claim that Ansari, who was deported here from Dubai, had
worked for the banned terror outfits like LeT and HuJI.
He was putting forth arguments on charges to be framed
against 14 suspected IM terrorists arrested so far in
connection with the serial blasts here on September 13, 2008.
His arguments sought to correlate the broader nexus among
various terror outfits and also to prove that IM, though not
included in the list of banned organisations, was an offshoot
of LeT and SIMI.
He is likely continue his arguments tomorrow in the
All the accused have been chargesheeted under various
provisions of the IPC, the Unlawful Activities (Prevention)
Act and the Explosive Substances Act.
