A charge sheet in the case of murder of 26/11 defence lawyer Shahid Azmi was filed in a Maharashtra Control of Organised Crimes Act court here on Thursday.

Azmi represented Fahim Ansari, who was acquitted in the November 26 terror attacks case. He was shot dead in his office at Taximen's colony in Kurla on February 11. He received five bullet injuries.

Ramesh Mahale, senior police inspector of the Mumbai Crime Branch, told The Hindu that the 600-page charge sheet cited four persons as accused and five others wanted as accused.

The arrested are: Devendra Baburao Jagtap alias JD (28), Pintoo Devram Dhagle alias Raju (25), Vinod Yashwant Vichare (32) and Heshmukh Shankar Solanki alias Rohit.

One of the wanted accused is a well known gang leader Bharat Nepali. He had worked for the Chhota Rajan gang. Nepali, along with Vijay Shetty alias Bala Shetty and Bhagwant Singh, ordered the contract-killing.

Mr. Mahale said they were charge-sheeted for murder and criminal conspiracy under various sections of the Arms Act and the MCOCA.
