Cuttack: The Cuttack District & Sessions Judge Court today framed charges against suspected al-Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) operative Abdur Rehman and dismissed the discharge petition filed by him.
The next hearing has been scheduled on October 24 next month.
Rehman was charged for sedition, illegal possession of arms and weapons and involvement in illegal activities
He had filed a discharge petition on August 10 under Section 239 of CrPC claiming that the charges leveled against him in the police report are “false” and “groundless” and the court had deferred the hearing of his discharge petition till September 13.
Notably, Delhi police had arrested Rehman from here in December 2015 for his alleged links with the al-Qaeda.
He was subsequently booked by Odisha police under Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act after several bank accounts operated by him receiving money from overseas sources were detected.
