A year after synchronised explosions claimed the lives of 26 people and left over 65 injured in Delhi, the trial in the blast cases is yet to start against the 12 accused arrested.

Delhi police's Special Cell, the specialised anti-terror wing, investigating the cases related to the blasts, filed charge sheets against 12 suspected Indian Mujahideen terrorists.

The first chargesheet was filed in the Karol Bagh blast case against five suspects—Mohd Saif, Zeeshan Ahmed, Zia-ur Rehman, Saquib Nissar and Mohd Shakeel—on December 18 last year, almost 90 days after their arrest on September 19.

Four charge sheets in the other blasts cases of Greater Kailash Part I, Barakhmabha Road, Connaught Place, Tilak Marg police stations were also filed at regular intervals.

Worried over the delay in trial, the Delhi police had recently filed an application before the court, seeking production of all accused before it through video conferencing. But their plea is also pending disposal.
