IM terrorist to be charged in M C Sharma`s murder
New Delhi: A suspected Indian Mujahideen
terrorist arrested in Azamgarh in connection with the 2008
serial blasts here, will be charged with the murder of Delhi
Police Inspector Mohan Chand Sharma during the Batla House
encounter, sources said on Tuesday.
Shahzad alias Pappu, an accused in the September 13, 2008
serial blasts in Delhi which claimed 26 lives, was arrested by
the Anti-Terrorist Squad of the Uttar Pradesh Police from
Khalispur village of Azamgarh district last evening and will
be brought to Delhi for interrogation.
The suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorist will be charged
with the killing of Sharma during the September 19, 2008
encounter at Batla House, a week after the serial blasts
rocked the capital, the sources said.
A team led by Sharma had gone to Batla House following
inputs that a module of Indian Mujahideen terrorists were
holed up in a flat there. When intercepted, the group members
allegedly opened fire which was retaliated by police.
While two terrorists were killed in the encounter, police
had claimed that two others -- Shahzad and Junaid -- managed
to give them a slip and fled from the spot.
Shahzad, who carries a reward of Rs five lakh on his
head, was named in five chargesheets regarding serial blasts
filed by Delhi Police in a court here.
Shahzad was accused of planting bombs at India Gate and
Karol Bagh. However, the bombs planted at India Gate did not
explode and were recovered and defused by police.
Twelve more accused are yet to be arrested in connection
with the Delhi serial blasts case.
