Muzaffarnagar: Members of Muslim organisations on Saturday disrupted rail services here, demanding release of journalist Syed Mohammad Ahmad Kazmi who has been arrested for his alleged role in the February 13 bombing of an Israeli diplomat car.

Around 500 agitators led by Muzaffarnagar-based head of the UP Imam Association, Mufti Zulfiqar, blocked the rail track at the railway station here in the morning for about an hour, disrupting train services.

The Muslim clerics raised slogans, demanding immediate release of Kazmi.

Kazmi, 50, who claimed to have been writing for Iranian publications, was arrested on March 7 following investigations into the incident where a magnetic bomb was stuck on an Israeli embassy vehicle in New Delhi.

Four persons including the wife of an Israeli diplomat were injured in the bombing incident.

Police have registered a case against 200 agitators under the Railways Act.
