Written by: Staff

Mumbai, June 17 (UNI) A sessions court here today rejected the bail application of Maulana Ghulam Mohammed Yahya Baksh, arrested in January this year for his links with Lashkar-e-Toiba on the grounds of his prima facie involvement.

Additional sessions Judge C D Gongle rejected the bail application on the ground that Maulana had his links with the terrorist organisation ''LET'' and had provided shelter and money to the arrested terrorists.

Anti-Terrorist Squad (ATS) of the Mumbai police had arrested the 44-year-old Maulana of the prestigious Haj House for his connection with the Lashkar-e-Toiba on January 14 this year.

Maulana is the fourth suspected LeT member arrested from Mumbai since a crackdown began after a suspected Lashkar gunman sprayed bullets at a gathering of scientists in Bangalore.

Earlier, the ATS had arrested three LeT men from Nagpada area of the city on January 6. The ATS believes that the Maulana could lead the police to other modules as he was the key ''contact man'' for LeT and the financer for them.

Maulana has been booked under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA for conniving, Conspiring and harbouring terrorists.
