Jithendra.H.J (Lawyer)     11 February 2010

Lawyer for 26/11 accused shot dead in Mumbai

 Four assailants barged into his office in Taxi Men colony in Kurla and shot two bullets into him at point blank range, the police said.


He was rushed to Rajawadi Hospital in Ghatkopar where he was declared dead. The assailants fled from the scene after the incident. 

Shahid, who was nephew of Samajwadi Party leader and Govandi MLA Abu Asim Azmi, had also appeared as defence counsel for the accused in July 11 Mumbai local train blasts.

In the past, he has represented those accused in the Ghatkopar and Mulund blasts. The police confirmed that the Chhota Shakeel gang had tried to kill him a few years ago.

Ansari was arrested in Uttar Pradesh in February, 2008. Maps marked with important buildings in Mumbai were found with him. He was brought from a UP jail to Mumbai in December that year, after the 26/11 attacks.

This is clear that killing any one in India is so easy.


 its very sad... even though i learnt from news paper that he had complaint to the police about thretaning call receiving from the unnamed accused. police had never taken up this matter seriously. if an advocate is not safe in mumbai then being a citizen of india, we can think that no one is safe

Ashok Chava said that he can't do anything if screening of the film is prevented. No safety. Stay at home.
