The National Investigation Agency (NIA) will today file a chargesheet against Dawood Ibrahim aide who wanted to create communal tension in the country by targeting religious and the Rashtiya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leaders.
According to Director General of NIA Sharad Kumar, the agency will file the chargesheet in an Ahmedabad court.
“The NIA will file chargesheet in an Ahmedabad court against D-Company members who wanted to create unrest in country, on Saturday. The D-company members wanted to create communal tension in the country by targeting religious and RSS leaders,” Kumar said.
“Charge sheet will be filed against 10 members of D-Company. Ibrahim’s aides Javed Chikna, Zahid-Miya Sheikh and others had planned the attacks”, the agency said, adding that it has asked the Interpol to help track down Chikna in Pakistan.
As part of their plans, D-Company members shot and killed two right-wing leaders, Shirish Bangali and Pragnesh Mistry, in Gujarat on November 2, 2015. The shooters were arrested and had claimed that the killings were to “avenge the hanging” of 1993 Mumbai bomb blasts accused Yakub Memon, the report added. Memon was allegedly an accomplice of Ibrahim’s. Ibrahim (pictured above) is still wanted by Indian security agencies for his involvement in the 1993 serial blasts, in which 257 people were killed and 717 injured.
