Delhi Court to hear arguments on charges against Yasin Bhatkal today
New Delhi: A Delhi court will today hear arguments on framing of charges against suspected Indian Mujahideen co-founder Yasin Bhatkal who was arrested by National Investigation Agency (NIA) for his alleged role in a conspiracy to carry out terror activities across the country along with other IM operatives.
Additional Sessions Judge Neena Bansal Krishna will hear fresh arguments on framing of charges which were earlier being heard by District Judge I S Mehta.
NIA had earlier filed a supplementary chargesheet in the court against 20 suspected IM operatives in which it had said that IM's Pakistan-based founder Riyaz Bhatkal had suggested adopting tactics used in the 2013 Maoist strike in Chhattisgarh on Congress leaders for eliminating politicians.
Before that, the agency had filed two chargesheets in the case against nine suspected IM operatives, including Yasin Bhatkal and his close aide Asadullah Akhtar who were arrested by NIA on August 28, 2013 in the case. Yasin Bhatkal and Asadullah Akhtar are in judicial custody.
