New Delhi [India], Jan 22 (ANI): The Delhi Police on Monday filed a chargesheet in Patiala House Court against Zeeshan Ali, an alleged Al-Qaeda terrorist who was deported from Saudi Arabia.

The Court took cognizance of the chargesheet and fixed the next date of hearing on February 2.

The 29-year-old, Ali, a native of Jharkhand and a relative of a 2007 Glasgow airport attack suspect, was deported from Saudi Arabia in connection with the case.

Ali's name, along with that of 11 others, was disclosed by Syed Anzar Shah and four others -- Mohd Asif, Zafar Masood, Mohd Abdul Rehman and Abdul Sami -- arrested in the case earlier.

The Delhi Police's Special Cell had arrested Ali after searching for him for over a year after three alleged AQIS (AlQaeda in the Indian Subcontinent) operatives were arrested in 2015. (ANI)
