New Delhi: The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) has dropped charges against Sufiyan Zafar, a suspect in the Mumbai terror attacks case. The FIA submitted in its report before an anti-terrorism court (ATC) and said that they could not find any incriminating evidence against Sufiyan.

The ATC placed Sufiyan in the second column of the charge sheet, which means no crime was proved against him.

It was alleged by the prosecution that Sufiyan Zafar had provided financial assistance to the other suspects. He had reportedly transferred Rs 14,000 into a suspect’s account.

But the charges against him could not be proved.

Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, another suspect in the Mumbai terror attacks case, was granted bail in December 2014.

Over 164 people were killed and over 308 wounded when 10 members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, an Islamic militant organisation based in Pakistan, carried out a series of bomb blasts that lasted for four days across Mumbai.
