Mirza Himayat Baig (29), who was arrested by the Maharashtra Anti-Terrorism Squad in the German Bakery blast case, was produced before ATS court judge S.S. Bose here on Wednesday afternoon. He was remanded to police custody till September 20. Baig has been booked under Sections 302, 307, 326, 325, 324, 427, 120 (B) of the Indian Penal Code; Sections 3, 4 and 5 of the Indian Explosives Act, and Sections 16, 18 and 21 of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Assistant Commissioner of Police (ATS) Vinod Satav claimed that 1.2 kg of RDX, a soldering gun, soldering wires, a wire cutter and two mobile phones were recovered from Baig.

According to the remand application, Baig revealed that he, along with Mohsin Choudhary and Ahmed Siddhibappa alias Yasin Bhatkal and others, had committed the act. Baig also revealed that the remaining explosive ‘raw material,' after the fabrication of the bomb, was hidden in his house at Udgir in Latur district. The ATS took him there and seized it.

Mohsin is wanted in a serial blasts case on the Western Railway in Mumbai, while Bhatkal is wanted in several bomb blast cases in various parts of the country. The two are allegedly members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Indian Mujahideen (IM).

The application states it is evident that Baig is part of these terrorist outfits and that he was involved in enticing young Muslims into the organisations.

Baig is also said to be close to the people who were accused of possessing illegal arms and explosives, brought from Pakistan, at Verul near Aurangabad in 2006. The application says Baig has admitted to supplying arms to criminal elements in Pune in 2007. He is also involved in the 2008 case of propagating jihadi literature in Pune.

The police and the intelligence agencies in India including the IB are infested with RSS elements and their nefarious design is to frame innocent Muslims.This is another farce.It is well known police deliberately washed away the floor of the bakery only to wipe out the evidence.For a long time the ATS was coming out with names and then back tracking.This even left the Home Minister Chidambaram when he congratulated the ATS for arresting a purported offender.India Muslims are dispensable people. For the success of Hindutva they will be sacrificed at the alter and police and intelligence agencies are only playing their tune.
