Kazmi Solidarity Committee welcomes SC order to grant bail to Syed Kazmi

October 19, 2012

This release comes from the KAZMI SOLIDARITY COMMITTEE

The Kazmi Solidarity Committee welcomes the Supreme Court order granting bail to Syed Mohammad Ahmad Kazmi after seven months in custody on charges of involvement in the bomb attack on an Israeli diplomatic vehicle.

The committee deplores the obstructive attitude of the prosecution and the Special Cell of the Delhi Police, which have been perversely attempting to keep Mr. Kazmi in prison despite their inability to file a chargesheet within the extended time granted under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act. Not only did the prosecution seek an extension of 90 days after the mandated period of judicial custody was over, it also used its inefficiency as an alibi, pleading that it needed more time to send out letters rogatory seeking international judicial assistance. While Mr. Kazmi was in custody, the Special Cell left no stone unturned in orchestrating a media trial to establish his guilt, planting malicious stories of his “confession” (while disavowing responsibility for these in court hearings).

The committee would like to underline once again, that despite this campaign by the Special Cell of the Delhi Police, independent media reports have suggested that the evidence against Mr Kazmi is feeble and the case against him, unlikely to stand any form of scrutiny.

    How about forming a solidarity committee for Col.Prohit ?. If you can form one for Kazmi why not one for this guy also? Or such solidarity committees and groups like JTSA are only for defending muslims accused in cases relating to terrorism.
