INDIA: BANGAON COURT GIVES DEATH SENTENCES TO 3 TERRORISTS

January 21, 2017: Three Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) operatives were sentenced to death by a Bengal court.
The operatives identified as – Mohammad Yunous, Abdullah Khan and Muzaffar Ahmed were given death penalty by the Fast Track Court- 1 of Bongaon in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal.
Yunous and Khan are both Pakistani nationals and Ahmed is an Indian national. Ahmed hailed from Anantnag in Jammu and Kashmir.
Besides these three, the fourth LeT operative, Sheikh Naeem alias Samir arrested with the three others, had fled in 2013 while in CID custody. Naeem was from Aurangabad in Maharashtra.
All were arrested on April 1, 2007 by Border Security Force (BSF) from Petrapole border while sneaking into India.
Later, the BSF handed over the four to West Bengal CID for investigation. The CID had produced them before the court on April 4, 2007 and sought custody. Since then, the CID had been investigating the case.
The trial ended last week and the quantum of punishment was announced January 21, sentencing the three of them to death. They were sentenced to death on charge of Section 121 IPC, waging a war against the nation. The fourth accused was declared absconding.
During the course of investigation and trial, it was revealed that Mohammad​ Yunus, and Abdullah Khan belonged to the LeT suicide squad and had also planned a suicide bombing in Jammu and Kashmir.
At the time of their arrest, several documents were found on them that prove they were on their way to Jammu and Kashmir. Several mobile phones were also found on them. However, SIM cards were missing from those mobile phones. Later, they had admitted that they had destroyed the SIM cards moments after their arrest.
All four had arrived from Dhaka, Bangladesh from Karachi in the last week of March while trying to sneak into India.
Investigators had also revealed that Sheikh Naeem was also involved in Mumbai train blasts. He had also confessed of helping LeT handlers in Pakistan in the train blasts. Ahead of him fleeing in 2013, Naeem was even interrogated by a team of Mumbai Anti-Terrorism Squad in connection with the attacks. (Sources: Kolkata24x7 News desk, 21/01/2017)
