April 11, 2008 21:53 IST
Sabeel Ahmed, one of the accused in the botched London [Images] and Glasgow car bomb cases, was on Friday sentenced by a UK court to 18 months in prison
Earlier, Sabeel had admitted to charges of withholding information that could have prevented an act of terrorism.
The 26-year-old doctor from Bangalore admitted at the Old Bailey court house that he had failed to inform the police regarding the terrorist attack that would have been of 'considerable assistance'.
Sabeel's brother Kafeel Ahmed, who according to police smashed a car containing gas cylinders and detonators into the Glasgow airport, had died in a hospital of the severe burn injuries sustained in the failed bombing in June 2007.
