The quartet of Abdul Jaleel, Thadiyantavide Nazeer, Shafas and Firoz, who have been slapped life terms, are relatives through marriage. While Nazeer and Shafas are married to daughters of Jaleel’s sister, Firoz is the husband of Jaleel’s another sister.

According to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), all four were leading a religious life and the young members of the family were attracted to their group.

Majid Parambayi, who was arrested in connection with the Tamil Nadu bus burning case in Kalamassery, is also a close relative of Jaleel. Majid is married to Jaleel’s younger sister.

He is also an accused in a murder case. According to the National Investigation Agency, Jaleel, Nazeer, Shafas and Firoz played a key role in hatching a conspiracy to incite, facilitate and advocate terrorism thereby waging a war against the country.

Jaleel was assigned the task of passing on the messages from Jammu and Kashmir to Nazeer, the focal point of the plot.

Shafas, a close associate of Nazeer, was the master brain in forging ID cards.
