By Mohammed Siddique, TwoCircles.net,

Hyderabad: OCTOPUS, the anti terrorist force of Andhra Pradesh Police has filed a voluminous charge sheet in the case of bomb blast at Gokul Chat Bhandar in the Nampally criminal court on Saturday.

33 people were killed in the crowded eatery in Kothi area of Hyderabad on the evening of August 25, 2007. This is the third charge sheet against seven accused in this case. The Octopus had earlier filed two separate charge sheets in another blast at Lumbini Park Laserium and an unexploded bomb recovered at a crowded place in Dilsukhnagar on the same day about two years ago.

In the latest charge sheet spread on 1125 pages, the same seven persons have been named as accused that were named in the earlier two charge sheets. All seven of them are non locals and four of them who were arrested by Mumbai police last year are now lodged in Cherlapally Central Jail of Hyderabad. The charge sheet has shown 286 people as witnesses in the Gokul Chat case.

The seven persons named in the charge sheet include Mohd Akbar Ismail Chowdhary alias Sayeed, Anique Shafeeq Sayeed alias Anique, Riyaz Bhatkal alias Roshan Khan, Iqbal Bhatkal alias Mohammaed Bhai, Farooq Sharfuddin Tarkash alias Abdullah, Mohd Sadiq Ansar Ahmed Shaik alias Yaseer and Amir Reza Khan alias Muttaki.

Akbar Ismail Chowdhary, Aneeq Shafeeq and Ansar Ahmad Shaikh were arrested by Mumbai police in October 2008 and they were brought to Hyderabad in February 2009. The Mumbai police, which had arrested the three persons in connection with some other terror incidents, learnt about their involvement in the Hyderabad blasts in course of interrogation and informed the Hyderabad police about it. They confessed their involvement in the twin blast saying they carried it out to take revenge for the blast at Mecca Masjid on May 18, 2007 by “Hindu militants”.

According to the charge sheet Riyaz Bhatkal alias Roshan Khan was the main brain behind the conspiracy and the blasts and he continues to be at large along with two other accused.

With the filing of the charge sheet, the way is cleared now for the trial of the accused in the cases of blasts at Lumbini Park and Gokul Chat as well as the unexploded bomb.

According to the police it was Riyaz Bhatkal who planted the bomb at Gokul Chat while Aneeq Shafeeq planted the bomb at Lumbini Park. The third bomb at Dilsukhnagar bridge was placed by Akbar Chowdhary but it did not explode.

It may be recalled here that after the blasts in Mecca Masjid as well as the twin blasts, the Hyderabad city police had picked up hundred local youth, 27 of them were subjected to third degree torture to force them to confess their involvement in the blasts. Later they were booked in different cases including criminal conspiracy cases but the local courts subsequently acquitted them.

The persons arrested in Mumbai told the police that no local person from Hyderabad was involved in the blasts.


Arrest Modi Togadia and truth about all blasts will surface

Send the Special Operation boys., and have Narendra Modi and Togadia arrested. Take them to The Hague, Netherlands., and subject them to a scientific and honest interrogation. Facts not only about Gokul Chaat., but the whole Chaat Masala of truths (about all the blasts in India) would come out in full detail.

Gather the evidence and present the same on National T.V. to the People of India. Thats the only way forward. To take 2-3 major people and subject them to interrogation - until they spill the beans. Once they do it, their confessional to be aired on National TV.

hyderabad blast charge sheet

Fundamental Islamic terrorism has moved to India unfortunately. All have to be vigilant. All- Hindu, christian, Muslin, Sikh should do everything possible to detect and eliminate. It is time for Muslims not to harp on historical grievance, and it is time for Hindus not to bring historical claims. PAst is past, move forward.

Muslims should get educated. Sometimes, it looks like they avoid education with a vengence. leaving uneducated and illiterate, having only madrasa stuff, will leave them permanently hopeless.

Your first set of comments

Your first set of comments were sensible then you spewed prejudice at the next. Have you read the sachar report?

Less than 4% of muslims attend madrassas and that to because they don't have schools nearby. Also madrassas in India are no the same as Pakistan. If you go and see, then you will notice that madrassas prmote loyalty to India, and even in some madrassas like Bihar and West bengal, Hindus also attend madrassas because they provide cheap education. So grow up and get educated because it seems at hte moment YOU are uneducated.
