The Bombay High Court has upheld the acquittal of Maulana Yahya Illahi Baksh, the former cleric of Haj House who was arrested by the Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) in 2006 for allegedly aiding terrorists having links with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT).
A division bench of Justice B R Gavai and Justice Sarang Kotwal, on Tuesday, rejected the state government appeal which had challenged his acquittal by a lower court. The bench upheld that the lower court order had held that prosecution had failed to prove charges against the accused, said Advocate Mateen Shaikh, the counsel for Baksh.
Baksh, who resides in Kurla, has been doing odd jobs to sustain himself and his family since his job as a cleric was terminated after his arrest.
