The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Thursday filed a supplementary chargesheet in the 1993 Mumbai serial blasts case against an under-trial in the case, Feroz Rashid Khan, to refute his claims of mistaken identity.
Khan, who is facing trial under several sections of the Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act for his alleged involvement in the serial blasts, had in the past claimed that his name is ‘Hamza’ and that he has been wrongly implicated in the case.
The CBI on Thursday, however, submitted a 90- page chargesheet against him before the TADA court, along with official documents like his passport and ration card. “We have relied upon several vital documents to establish his identity. Also, we are relying on 12 witnesses to build our case,” said senior CBI counsel Deepak Salvi.
According to the CBI, the 54-year-old accused was a close associate of fugitive don Dawood Ibrahim and is accused of helping in landing RDX and firearms prior to the 1993 serial blasts in Mumbai.
Between 2004 and 2010, before his arrest in February 2010, he spent his time in the Middle East and a village in Koparkhairane in Navi Mumbai.
