New Delhi: A Muslim organisation has decided to extend legal help to seven youths from Bihar arrested for their alleged involvement in the September 7 blast outside the Delhi High Court.

The Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, which had been extending legal services to people from the minority community accused of involvement in acts of terror, has decided to help the seven accused from North Bihar.

Jamiat chief Maulana Arshad Madni said that family members of the men accused of involvement in the blast outside Delhi High Court and Chinnaswami Stadium in Bangalore had approached the organisation following which the decision was taken.

"It is for the courts to decide whether a person is guilty. Before that, it is not appropriate to term anyone as a terrorist," he said.

The organisation had extended similar help to some of the accused in the Malegaon blast case. They were granted bail a few months ago.
