Chargesheet against Areeb Majeed mentions 12 LRs written by NIA to various countries.
The four young men from Kalyan — Areeb Majeed, Fahad Shaikh, Amaan Tandel and Saheem Tanki — left their homes and went to fight for the IS in Iraq and Syria in May 2014.
The NIA has also started probing the September 12, 2014 blast in a rented room in Bijnor.
According to the chargesheet, Majeed reached Istanbul on Nov 26, 2014 and “sneaked” into India by a Turkish airline flight.
Sources told The Indian Express that requests under the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) had been sent to 12 countries.
All were lodged in Bijnor jail since October and chargesheets have been filed in all six cases.
Professor T J Joseph of Newman College, Thodupuzha, was attacked by an armed gang in 2010, alleging that he had insulted the Prophet in a question paper for an internal exam at the college.
Incidentally, the UP police have already filed chargesheets in all six cases.
The NIA is likely to probe last year’s blast at a VHP rally in Roorkee in which one person was killed.
Dedicated pool of lawyers guiding officers from very beginning of the case will help the agency build a watertight case.
The arrested man is one of the accused involved in the attack during which the professor’s right hand was chopped off with an axe.
A report NIA in the case had said that the Special Cell was responsible for “fake arrest memo, fake site plan” and that the former militant was arrested “without sufficient cause”.
The NIA chargesheet throws light on the Bodo extremists being one of the end users of the bombs that were manufactured in Burdwan.
Demands of BMC included abolishing of NIA and Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.
All the 17 arrested in the Burdwan blast case have been charged under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA).
