The thirteen convicts in the Kashmir terror recruitment case were brought and lodged to the Poojappura Central Jail here on Saturday afternoon.
All of them were sentenced to life imprisonment by an NIA special court in Kochi on Friday.
The convicts were transported to the capital in a police bus accompanied by heavy police security, including the commando force of the state police. The jail authorities have strengthened security arrangements and the convicts will be housed in cells monitored by surveillance cameras.
Jail DGP Alexander Jacob and other top officials reviewed the security arrangements. The authorities are planning to deploy more personnel to man the cells where the terror case convicts and some other high-profile convicts like Ripper Jayanandan and Ooppa Prakash are housed. The personal belongings of the convicts including large number of periodicals and books will be kept in the jail.
