Presence of the party's all elected lawmakers, including close to 1,400 MLAs, 337 MPs and all MLCs besides its core group leaders from states among others is a key highlight of the meeting.

Ahmed Hassan, an 18-year-old from Sunbury, Surrey who had previously been identified as "A", was charged with attempted murder and causing an explosion likely to endanger life or to cause serious injury to property.

The blast from the improvised explosive device caused burns for some passengers while others were injured in the blast's stampede.

Two other men are still being questioned by police while three others have since been released by detectives and face no further action.

Prosecutors said Mr Hassan had meant to kill innocent people because of his "warped political view".
