The anti-terrorism squad (ATS) of Maharashtra will file an application in the court, seeking the release of Sadiq Shaikh, alleged Indian Mujahideen operative, from the 7/11 Mumbai train
bombing case. The ATS arrested Sadiq (32), in the blast case on February 28. ATS officials said that they questioned Sadiq thoroughly and even subjected him to brain mapping and polygraph tests but did not find his involvement in the train blast case. “We will be filing the application in the Maharashtra
Control of Organised Crime Act court to discharge Sadiq from the train blast case. This application will be filed before April 28,” ATS additional commissioner of police, Param Bir Singh was quoted as saying.
“We had interrogated Sadiq from all angles and found that he was not involved in the 7/11. Even the forensic test reports including brain mapping test, which is an admissible evidence in the court, did not suggest Sadiq’s involvement in the train blast case,’’ said the ATS officer.
