Mumbai: The Central Bureau of In-vestigation (CBI) has filed a supplementary charge-sheet against Ahmed Kamal Sheikh alias Ahmed Lambu, arrested in connection with the 1993 serial bomb blasts’ case.

The CBI in its charge-sheet has claimed that Lambu was an active member of a criminal conspiracy concerning this case. He was in Dubai and working in close association with other prime absconding accused persons. The CBI has further alle-ged that he attended the conspiracy meeting, which was headed by the prime absconding accused in Dubai before the blasts.

The central agency has also claimed that in pursuance of the said meeting, he underwent training in the handling of ar-ms, ammunition, throwing hand grenades, and making bombs. The char-ge-sheet has been subm-itted before the registrar of the sessions court, and will reach the designated Terrorist and Disruptive Activities (Prevention) Act court in due course.

“We have not received the copy of the charge-sh-eet so far,” said Lambu's lawyer, Farhana Shah.

The Gujarat Anti-Terro-rism Squad’s Ahmedabad unit on May 31 told the CBI that they had arrested an accused wanted in the 1993 blasts’ case. Foll-owing this, the investigating team on June 2 bro-ught Lambu to Mumbai on transit remand that was to end on June 4.
