Charges were framed against the accused for murder under IPC section 302 and provisions of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act and the Arms Act, said Minhaz ul-Haq, counsel for six of the nine accused.
Multiple other IPC sections, including 295A (deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings), 307 (attempt to murder), 120B (criminal conspiracy) and 452 (trespassing) were also slapped against the accused.
