NIA files chargesheet in 'Kashmir recruitment' case

February 16, 2011 20:19 IST

The National Investigating Agency filed its final chargesheet in a special court here against 24 accused, including a Pakistan national, in the "Kashmir terror recruitment' case, relating to enrolment of several youths from Kerala for anti-national activities.

The case against the accused, including Wali Abdul Rahiman, a Pakistan national, was that they had conspired with the banned outfit Leshker-e-Taiba and recruited several youths from Kerala to carry out anti-national activities in Jammu and Kashmir.

The accused have been charged with anti-national activities and waging war against the nation. The youths, recruited in 2006, were given armed training in terrorist modules to wage war against India, the chargesheet said.

Wali, the main link between the LeT and the Keralites, has been absconding while four youths recruited from northern districts of Kerala, died in encounters with security forces in 2008.

So far 10 persons had been arrested in the case while the absconding included the first accused Abdul Jaleel from Kerala.

The accused included four youths killed in encounters with the security personnel and T Nazir, who is now in jail in connection with the 2008 Bangalore serial blasts, in which one person was killed.
