Defense lawyer of Muslim blast accused provided security after threat

Sunday March 24, 2013 11:35:01 AM, ummid.com Special Correspondent

Mumbai: One of the defense lawyers of the Muslim accused arrested in the 2006 Mumbai train blasts and other terror related cases was on Saturday provided security after he complained to the Mumbai police that he was under the threat and there was danger to his life.

 

The defense lawyer Abdul Wahab Khan through his sources learnt that he and other lawyers defending the Muslim accused arrested in various blast cases were under threat and plans were underway to eliminate them, according to Advocate Shahid Ansari.

 

"Consequently, a delegation led by Jamiatul Ulema Maharashtra President Mustaqeem Ahsan Azmi met Joint Commissioner of Mumbai police (crime) Himanshu Roy and apprised him of the threats to the lawyers", he said while talking to ummid.com.

 

The Jamiatul Ulema delegation told the Mumbai police officer that Advocate Shahid Azmi had similarly received the death threats and was later on given security support. "However, he was killed few months after his security cover was removed", he said.

 

"Following our request,  a security guard has been appointed for the security of Advocate Wahab Khan", he added.

 

Advocate Wahab Khan, Advocate Shahid Ansari and others are part of the Jamiatul Ulema Legal Cell which is providing free legal aid to the Muslim accused arrested in various terror cases.
