The NIA will file an appeal in the Kashmir recruitment case after the Special Court acquitted five persons in the case.

NIA officials said they are consulting their lawyers to decide over the matter and an appeal would be filed before the court next week.

They believe that there were enough evidence against the acquitted -- Muhammad Nainar, Badaruddin, P K Anas, Sheneej and Abdul Hameed alias Ameer Ali alias Hameed Master alias Muhammad Yusuf.

These persons were released from the Ernakulam Sub Jail on Thursday.

Meanwhile, the 13 persons who have been convicted in the case will soon be filing an appeal before the High Court.

Kunhabdulla, counsel of an accused, will submit a complaint against NIA court judge S Vijayakumar.

He said the judge had not taken the statements of the arrested persons correctly.
