KOCHI: The Kochi NIA court on Tuesday has sentenced all the 18 accused, including four Malayalees, in the case relating to the SIMI camp on a hill in Vagamon in Kottayam district, to seven years imprisonment.

Each of the accused are also directed to pay a fine of Rs. 25,000. Also, the remand period will be deducted from the sentencing.

Though the accused were proven to have joined a terrorist organisation, the charges that they organised weaponized attack against the nation could not be proven.

Kottayam Erattupetta native Shaduli, his brother Shibili, Aluva natives Muhammad Ansar Nadvi, and Abdul Sattar were the Malayalees who got convicted. Only two of the accused were put directly under trial by the court. The trial of the accused staying in jails of other states happened through video conferencing.

The case named a total of 38 accused. Wasiq Billa, the 37th accused, and Alam Jeb Afridi, the 38th accused, have not been caught yet. Indian Mujahideen founder leader Abdul Subhan Qureshi, the 35th accused, and the one who was recently nabbed and put in Tihar Jail, was not put to trial. The court has ordered to produce him on May 24. His trial would get over later. It was Qureshi who brought in foreign funds to Kerala for terrorist activities.

The trial of the accused staying in jails of other states happened through video conferencing. The trial that began in January 2017, got over by April 2018. About 77 people were put to trial as prosecution witnesses. The NIA had submitted a charge sheet including 30 people as accused in January 2011. An auxiliary charge sheet was submitted in July 2013, after including six more people as accused.
