Cite riots after temple defiled by ‘some Muslims’, then say it was ‘Hindu boys’
The hearing of the tribunal at Port Blair is scheduled for July 20 and 21.
Saquib Nachan, an alleged member of Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), is one of the main accused.
At least three additional solicitors-general have sent in their resignations to the law secretary, it is learnt.
The bench, however, refused to issue interim orders to the tribunal, which has been set up to examine the ban on SIMI for the seventh time in a row.
Tribunal deciding on extending SIMI ban must look at concrete evidence to establish its links with terror.
The ATS of the Madhya Pradesh Police arrested SIMI operative Gulrez Mustafa just outside the Bhopal railway station.
The only evidence is the confessional statements of the alleged accused, but using that before the tribunal is illegal, said Agrwaal.
The government had set up the tribunal on February 27 after the seventh and latest extension of the ban on SIMI.
Seizure of handmade maps of circuit diagrams and a diary explaining the procedure of making bombs was a testimony to their intentions, police said.
The accused, Ahmed and Fakhruddin of Mirzapur, were being brought to Lucknow and will be taken to Patna on Tuesday where they will be produced before the designated court.
Chattisgarh govt says it has arrested 16 terrorists from the banned militant outfit SIMI in the past one year.
The notification also cites two cases in Madhya Pradesh where six former members of SIMI escaped from the Khandwa jail in October last year.
Arrested men also revealed that they were monitoring Shinde’s frequent visits to his constituency.
Police said the arrests were made based on information provided by a jailed SIMI activist.
