Bilkulonline.com, Ahmedabad, April 17: Mufti Abdul Qayyum, an accused in the 2002 Akshardham temple attack case who was acquitted by the Supreme Court last year, won’t be able to tell his story.
Qayyum had planned to release a book on the 11 years he spent behind the bars for a crime he never committed, at a seminar in Ahmedabad on Thursday. But a diktat from the police has put brakes on it.
The police told Qayyum and the seminar organisers that neither the book should be released nor any direct reference be made to the Akshardham attack. Officials said this was being done to prevent a law and order problem.
