Charge sheet filed in Israeli diplomat attack case

July 31, 2012 17:37 IST

Nearly five months after an Israeli diplomat's car was bombed in New Delhi, the Delhi Police on Tuesday filed a charge sheet in a local court, indicting Indian journalist Syed Mohammad Kazmi of conspiring with foreign elements and others for the terror strike.

The charge sheet filed before Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Vinod Yadav only contained the name of Kazmi, the sole person arrested in the case for the February 13 attack in which an Israeli woman diplomat and her Indian driver were injured.

Kazmi has been charged under various provisions of the anti-terror law, Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) and other sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) including the attempt to murder.

He has also been charge-sheeted under the provisions of the Explosive Substances Act.

The diplomat, Tal Yehoshua and the driver of the embassy vehicle, were among four people injured in the blast.

Kazmi was arrested on March 6.
