New Delhi, Aug 1: A court here on Tuesday ordered for framing of charges on August 29 against Indian Mujahideen (IM) militant Yasin Bhatkal and others in two cases related to the 2010 terror attack near the Jama Masjid here. There was prima facie evidence against Bhatkal, his aide Asadullah Akhtar and eight other IM operatives in the two cases, Additiol District and Sessions Judge Sidharth Sharma said. However, the court discharged accused Syed Ismail Afaaque, Abdus Saboor and Riyaz Ahmad Sayeedi in the 2010 Jama Masjid blast case on grounds that it didn’t find any evidence against them. The three were accused of crimil conspiracy, destruction of evidence and other offences under the Indian Pel Code, apart from the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Arms Act. (IANS)
