The National Investigation Agency (NIA) Special Court found Sarfaraz Nawas guilty of raising funds for the terrorist act by sending money from abroad. Thus he committed an offence under Section 17 of the UA(P) Act, on which count he is liable to conviction.
Sabir, who himself was party to the conspiracy, also harboured Abdul Jabbar, committing an offence under Section 212 and Section 19 of the UA(P) Act.
“Muhammad Nainar, Badaruddin, Anaz P K, Saneej and Abdul Hameed are acquitted of all offences they stood charged of, by conferring benefit of doubt and are set at liberty,” the court ordered.
According to the NIA, Abdul Jaleel along with the other accused operating in and out of Kerala and allegedly having links with terrorist organisations, recruited youngsters for jihadi training in Pakistan, thereby assisting LeT in waging war against India. Nazeer along with Muhammed Sabir, Abdul Jabbar, Rahim, Baduruddin, Umar Farooq went to Hyderabad on August 31, 2008 while Faizal, Fayas, Fayis and Yasin went to Hyderabad on September 10, 2008.
C E Abdul Hameed received the youths in New Delhi and arranged accommodation for them till they proceeded to Kashmir to get further training under the LeT. The youths then moved to Kashmir.
Later, a Kashmiri girl, Parveen, led them from Srinagar to the LeT camp in the forests of Lolab. Later, while trying to cross into Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, four youths were killed in an encounter with the security forces while Jabbar escaped to Kerala, where he was eventually arrested.
