Sabauddin Ahmed, charged with providing maps of 26/11 terror targets to Lashkar-e-Taiba, on Wednesday told the trial court here that he was being falsely implicated in the case by Mumbai police.
"I have nothing to do with 26/11 terror attacks," Sabauddin said, in reply to question put to him by Judge ML Tahaliyani on evidence adduced against him.
Sabauddin alleged that he was not produced before a court within 24 hours by Mumbai police after his arrest in this case on December 17, 2008, thus violating his fundamental right.
However, the judge asked him to agitate before the concerned Magistrate where he was produced for remand or before Human Rights Commission.
Sabauddin said he had not provided maps to LeT and also denied having met co-accused Fahim Ansari or anyone else in Nepal.
A witness has deposed saying that in his presence Fahim had given maps of Mumbai terror targets to Sabauddin in Nepal for forwarding them to LeT, which carried out 26/11 attacks.
Sabauddin was arrested by UP police in a case of bomb blast in Rampur and later his custody was taken by Mumbai police in 26/11 case.
Lone surviving Pakistani gunman Ajmal Kasab and co-accused Ansari were also present in the court when Sabauddin gave the statement.
