While the five Kerala youths who attended the terror training camp in Kashmir and others who provided logistic support for their dispatch have been arraigned,the NIA did not probe Parveen,the woman who took the youths from Srinagar to the camp in Kupwara.

The two Kashmiri men who attended the camp with the Kerala youths were made prosecution witnesses.

Sajad Ahammed Reshi of Chakoo Shopian in South Kashmir and Fiyas Ahammed of Pulwama district told the NIA and later the court that the five Kerala youths were taken from Srinagar to the camp by Parveen,“wife of a butcher in Rampura,Sopore”.

They said she handed them over to Abdulla,a militant and commander of Al-Badr from Pakistan. Reshi and Ahammed said they were told by a Kerala trainee that 180 men were waiting in the state for training.

When the two joined the camp,there were Pak men. Kerala men joined later. Reshi and Ahammed fled the camp and surrendered before the police. They were made prosecution witnesses. The NIA,however,did not show similar leniency to Abdul Jabbar,who also escaped from the camp.
