RAWALPINDI - Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) Rawalpindi No.1 Saturday formally indicted three suspects arrested for their alleged role in providing explosives and funds to Pakistani-American Faisal Shahzad, arrested in the United States, for an attempted terrorist attack in New Yorks Times Square. ATC judge Malik Muhammad Akram Awan framed the charges against three accused including Mohammad Shoaib Mughal, Mohammad Shahid and Hunbul Akhtar and adjourned the hearing till November 24 for further proceedings. However, all the accused denied of the charges levelled against them stating that they were wrongly implicated in the case. Earlier, police had claimed that three men allegedly affiliated with the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan had been arrested for providing explosives, weapons and funds to Pakistani-American Faisal Shahzad, arrested in the United States, for an attempted terrorist attack in New Yorks Times Square. After arresting them, police registered a case against them in the Police Station (PS) Sihala. Police claimed that on a tip-off that three TTP militants were reaching Islamabad, a special team consisting of the Crime Investigation Department and Rural Area police intercepted a car on the Islamabad Highway, but it sped away. However, the suspects were arrested after a brief chase. It was told that three CDs, a laptop, maps of sensitive installations, including the parliament building, Presidents House and Manal Restaurant and New Yorks Times Square, along with Talibans literature, were found in the car whose registration number was found to be fake. During interrogation, the suspects confessed to having links with the TTP. Shoaib Mughal and his associates had trained Faisal Shahzad for the May 3 failed Times Square plot, police said. The suspects also helped Shahzad in obtaining travel documents for the United States, police said. They said that a sum of $13,500 was transferred to Shahzad in the US through a moneychanger in Islamabad. Shahzad stayed in the house of Shoaib Mughal a week before going to the US and the suspects remained in contact with him through the Internet. Police said they had also provided accommodation to three would-be terrorists, including a brother of Qair Hussain and Faqir Mohammad. One of the terrorists blew himself up in Muzaffarabad on June 26 and the other two were waiting for an opportunity to carry out an attack. The three men had received terrorist training at different canters of the TTP and they also met the groups chief Hamkimullah Mehsud. Police said that they had come to know about the mens links with Shahzad while investigating the complaints about their kidnapping on the directives of the court. They went into hiding in the tribal region after the arrest of Shahzad. Later, they surfaced along with their accomplices Fahim Ahmad and Faisal Abbasi, who were also arrested. It is pertinent to mention here that Mohammad Shoaib Mughal, Mohammad Shahid and Hunbul Akhtar had mysteriously disappeared in the fist week of May and cases of their abduction were registered at police stations in Islamabad and Rawalpindi on complaints lodged by their relatives. Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry took suo motu notice and asked police to recover them.
