July 31, 2008 14:20 IST

A court in Indore has sentenced three workers of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India to one-year rigorous imprisonment for attempting to create communal hatred.

First Class Judicial Magistrate Neelesh Yadav on Wednesday convicted Parvez (32), Sajid Pasha(38) and Imran(30), all residents of Nayapura in the city.

According to the prosecution, the accused were running SIMI [Images] activities from Nayapura area and literature aimed at creating communal hatred and other documents were recovered from them in November, 2002.

The conviction came in the wake of arrests of 13 top ranking activists of SIMI from Indore and adjoining areas in March and their suspected involvement in the recent serial bomb blasts in Bengaluru and Ahmedabad.
