New Delhi: The Delhi Police has charge-sheeted a suspected Indian Mujahideen operative for his alleged role in the Jama Masjid blast-cum-shootout case.

The Special Cell of Delhi Police filed a supplementary charge sheet against Kamaal Hassan alias Bilal, also an accused in Bangalore's Chinnaswamy Stadium blast case, in the court of Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vidya Parkash. It was filed 134 days after Hassan's arrest.

Bihar-native Hassan was indicted in the charge sheet for allegedly committing various offences under the IPC including waging war against India and offences under the Explosive Substances Act and the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act.

The charge sheet said Hassan had arranged a rented house in Shastri Park area here in which co-accused Quateel Siddiqui and Mohd Adil and others had stayed before carrying out the attack.

It added that Hassan had disclosed that "in 2010 he and his co-accused along with two Pakistani nationals Waqas and Tabrez and IM chief Ahmed Siddhibappa under instructions from their Pakistan-based chief conspired to attack foreign tourists in Delhi before Commonwealth Games to dissuade foreign countries from participating in the Games."

It said the conspiracy was hatched at the residence of co-accused Gauhar Aziz, who is currently in judicial custody.

The charge sheet said Ahmed Siddibappa procured one carbine and other ammunition for this purpose.

"In the first attempt in mid-2010, Quateel was accidentally shot at while he along with Adil were about to attack foreign tourists at German Bakery in Paharganj here," it said.
