After humming and hawing for over a day, the Australian police finally announced that the Dr.Mohammed Haneef, hailing from Bangalore in southern India, was being charged with providing reckless support to terrorists by providing them a mobile phone SIM card.
His cousin Sabeel Ahmed 26, who worked at Halton Hospital in Runcorn, southeast of Liverpool, has been accused of having information that could have helped police prevent another person committing an act of terrorism or arrest and prosecute them for terrorist offences.
No further detail was provided by the Scotland Yard, in line with Britain's strict contempt of court laws that limit reporting before any trial.
Sabeels brother, Kafeel Ahmed, 27, who suffered serious burns when he drove a blazing jeep Cherokee into the Glasgow airport, remains in a critical condition in a Scotland hospital. Many say his chances of survival are pretty slim.
The Glasgow attack came a day after two Mercedes-Benz cars were found packed with nails, petrol and gas canisters near a central London nightclub.
27-year-old Iraqi doctor Bilal Abdulla, remanded in custody last Saturday was the first to be charged with conspiracy to cause explosions. He is alleged to have been the passenger in the Jeep Cherokee.
Cousins Sabeel Ahmed and Mohammed Haneef thus bring the total number of people facing charges to three in the case.
Three more suspects are still being questioned at a high-security police station in London, while another person has been released.
According to media reports, the SIM card was found in Sabeel Ahmed's car. Haneef had allegedly given it to him before he moved to Australia last year so his cousin could take advantage of remaining minutes of call-time.
Meanwhile, Jordanian doctor Mohammed Asha, 26, and two trainee doctors aged 24 and 27, whose identities have not yet emerged, remained in custody Page: 1 2 3 4 Related medicine news :1
