Soon after a court sentenced Indian Mujahedeen operative Mirza Himayat Baig to death in the German Bakery blast case on Thursday, his family members approached Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind, a prominent NGO of minority community, to help in filing an appeal against the sentence in Bombay High Court.

31-year-old Baig was on Thursday sentenced to death by a Pune court in the February 13, 2010, German Bakery blasts case. Baig’s brother Tariq Baig and other relatives met Gulzar Azmi, a social activist, who heads the legal cell of Jamiat Ulama-e—-ind, according to sources here.PTI
