Australian federal police have found no evidence to charge an Indian doctor who has been detained for 11 days, but still believe he played a role in last month's failed bomb attacks in Britain, a newspaper reported Friday. Despite a massive investigation, authorities have failed to uncover any evidence with which to charge Muhammad Haneef, 27, but do not want to release him because they suspect he "provided support to the terrorist organization responsible for the terrorist acts in London and/or Glasgow," according to government documents cited by The Australian newspaper. The Australian Federal Police refused to comment on the report, saying the "investigation is ongoing and it is not appropriate to comment any further." Haneef, an Indian national who emigrated to Australia from Britain last year, is a distant cousin of Kafeel and Sabeel Ahmed, two suspects held in Britain in connection with two bomb-laden cars found in London on June 29 and an attack on a Glasgow airport the next day.
