Sheikh arrested in connection with the 2006 Mumbai terror blasts case was acquitted of all charges in 2015 when trial concluded. After his acquittal, he resumed his teaching profession and also completed a law degree.
Today, he is again in news for his book "Begunah Qaidi," (Innocent Prisoner) which he wrote while he was in prison.
Recently, a Delhi-based publisher brought out the book in two languages--Hindi and Urdu. A thousand copies of the book have already been sold as of now.
Sheikh expects that the book and his experiences will help other innocent people who are jailed for no reason.
