Washington D.C., July 20, 20089
Indian Muslim Council-USA (http://www.imc-usa.org), an advocacy group dedicated towards safeguarding India’s pluralist and tolerant ethos, is concerned that the Andhra Pradesh police may have acted without due process in transferring custody of the suspect arrested at Hyderabad airport without obtaining a transient warrant from an appropriate court.
According to news from Hyderabad on Jul 19, 2009 Shaukatullah Ghori, was arrested as he arrived at the Rajiv Gandhi International airport on suspicions of his involvement in Akshardham temple attack. News reports quote police that Ghori was immediately handed over to Gujarat state police.
