HYDERABAD: Eight prisoners who were members of SIMI, were killed in an encounter in Bhopal on Monday. Three of them were accused in a bank robbery case in Karimnagar in 2014.

October 31, 2016: Mehboob Guddu Malik alias Mehboob Khan, Mohammed Khalid Ahmed, Amjad Khan, Mujeeb Sheikh, Mohammed Akeel Khilji, Zakir Hussain Sadiq alias Zakir Badran, Mohammed Salik Sallu and Abdul Maijd, escaped from the Bhopal jail, by scaling a four-foot-wall after killing a head constable by slicing his throat with a steel plate. Within 10 hours of jail-break, the Bhopal police gunned down all the under trails at Eint Khedi village located on the outskirts of Bhopal.

Three of the under trails--Amjad, Zakir Badran and Mehboob Khan--along with their team leader Abu Faisal, Ejajuddin and Aslam Ayyub, were wanted in bank burglary at Choppadandi in Karimnagar district.

October 1, 2013: Faisal, Mehboob, Amjad, Aslam, Ejajuddin, Zakir and Abid Mirza, escaped from the Khandwa district jail by making a hole in the toilet wall. The next day, Abid was caught, but the others escaped. Since then, they indulged in several offences including a blast in Tamil Nadu, in which a young software engineer was killed.

February 1, 2014: The accused burgled SBI Bank at Choppadandi in Karimnagar district and looted `46 lakh. They were also involved in terror activities in Maharashtra, MP, Karnataka and UP while on the run.

The state police then had recovered a CCTV footage using which intelligence agencies confirmed the robbery accused as the escaped SIMI activists. The police had gunned down Aslam and Ejajuddin in an encounter at Janakipuram on April 4, 2015, in which a cop and two others were also killed. Abu Faisal was caught by the MP police in December 2015, while in an operation in February this year, Amjad, Mehboob and his mother Najma were arrested at Rourkela in January this year, and were put up in Bhopal Central Jail.
