indentifying seven accused
from a line-up 17 in a special court in Mumbai on Wednesday, on of the
survivors in the Best Bakery carnage, Tofel Ahmed Habibullah Sheikh said
that out of the fur children charred to death, two belonged to Aslambhai,
who stayed in the house, and the other two belonged to AslambhaiÂ’s friend
Firoz.

 

He also named one of the
dead women as Shabira, the bakery owner’s daughter. “Among the bakery
workers who died were Baliram, Prakash and Ramesh. They were assaulted
with swords and later burnt” he said.

 

He worked in the bakery for

told mediapersons that there were contradictions and loopholes in TofelÂ’s
original police statement and fresh deposition.
